As Promised........................BUT a word from a previous project!

I know what you are thinking... where is the Imagine project she promised... I did finish it.. but I wanna show you just a few things first please?
I picked up this Teresa Collins kit when I was in Indy at the Circle Meetup... I made it up for Olivia's 2nd birthday.. I love how it turned out! I used numerous cutouts from the cricut and various cartridges...The pictures are on her ACTUAL birthday, she had a party before her birth date.... so without further adieu here is my first lil book.....

 The balloons were cut out and then topped with crystal lacquer..they wanted to curl up on me pretty bad though... I used two candles on the cake to represent her 2nd birthday. I tried to do that through out the book.
This is the first of several little pockets in the book. This one had tags on it with little things that I wish for Olivia for her life..
 I also went through my carts and cut out all sorts of twos... all different kinds.
 I used my peachy keen face stamps to make the faces on the center of my daises. I love those stamps! Look at all the little faces she comes up with! Oh my gosh she is a hot mess! I love her so much. Until you have a grandchild no one can tell you how much you will fall in love with them!
 This pocket holds tags with memories I have of her from this past year. So many little antidotes she said and did... Things I never want her to forget that they were special to me!

 This was way more fun than I would have ever imagined. I am not much for this type thing...

 This the last pocket holds all different kinds of twos. On them I wrote things like 2 cute, 2 funny, because she is all those things in my eyes.
 I love this page with the cupcakes and blue birds! I used my brand new copic markers to do these.
 Final page are pictures from her actual birthday party. She and I and one with her Mom ( my daughter) and Dad
For Olivia.... The love of my life........ I hope one day she looks through this and sees how much her Nana loves her!
