Nicolette's Mother's Day Blog Hop | Day 1

Welcome to Nicolette's Mom's Day Blog Hop! This is a two-day blog hop from Hostess Nicolette. You can start back at the top of the hop at Nicolette's blog Beyond Scrapin'. If you came from Cheryl's blog you are in the right place! 

 For today I made a Hand Painted Hand Crafted Mini Book[2×2"]. Both the cover and the inside pages were hand painted using watercolor crayons. The flowers on the front were also hand painted using matching colors. The ribbon serves as a closure for the album. This album is left blank to serve as a decorative gift for my mother...she could use this little book to tuck away passwords or meditations or any personal notes for safe keeping. The petite size of this mini makes it perfect for such secret actions. Thank you for looking! I hope you enjoy my project.

The next stop on the hop is Robin's blog! Hop on over and check out her project!
