Before Easter

Today it's my turn to show you my interpretation of aprils moodboard. 
This month is all about roots and traditions, 
At Easter in Poland, children receive a lot of sweets. 
It is important to have a nice package, so I prepared today.
 With our moodboard April chose a rooster.
The second project is exploding box-instead of Easter card.
This is our moodboard for april;
                                          I invite you to take part in the challenge in April.
                                                        I wish you all Happy Easter.

Baby Girl Mini Album~Inkido April Mood Board Challenge

Hello everyone! Today is Friday here in the US and I am so ready for the weekend!!
For April, Inkido has a Mood Board Challenge up and running, and the following is the inspiration:

and the theme is Family Roots & Traditions. 

I decided to do a mini album surrounding a new baby. I thought that a baby album is always the perfect way to record traditions and family roots, and I was inspired by so many of the colors you see in the photo throughout the album. So I grabbed lots of those Inkido and PaperScandanavia products and started creating!

On the cover I used a sweet image that I cut from the Beautiful Memories Pink Babies Paper and then framed it in a chipboard frame. I fussy cut some baby booties from the same paper and added some of the Inkido Pink Crystals. 

The flowers are all Inkido.

Her you can see a close up. The album cover and back are acrylic and I painted them with gesso, then edged them in hand tinted German Glitter Glass.

Here you can see how dimensional my album is~filled to the brim with all that Inkido/PaperScandanavian goodness.

The first page features a pocket made from Inkido paper, and has two little tags I made from the Pink Baby paper. The little corrugated heart is an Inkido piece that I turned into a tag topped with some more of the Pink Crystals. 
The 2nd page is actually a sewn pocket with another Inkido Tag tucked inside, it has a Doily spot for a photo and another Inkido Mulberry Paper Flower.

The 3rd and 4th page features die cut photo spots made from the Beautiful Memories line.
The wing dangle is one that I hand crafted from paper clay.

The 4th page forms a pocket and has another Baby tag tucked in.

The 5th and 6th pages feature the back side of the Pink Babies paper and have a wonderful star print.
Some sweet Pink Baby Cut outs make photo spots, and the little corrugated star is an Inkido piece that I turned into a tag and topped with a little lamb image fussy cut from the Pink Baby paper. 

The 7th page features some clip on pieces that can house small photos or journaling as well as a tuck in tag that tucks behind the paper. And the 8th page has another pocket with more little Pink Baby Tags.

Here you can see all the tuck in and clip pieces from those two pages.

And here is the back side view.

I hope you have enjoyed the details of my mini album. Mini Albums are wonderful ways to store details about your Family Traditions, as well as a FABulous place to share your Families Roots.
I hope you get a chance to come play along with the April Challenge, and look forward to seeing what you create!! Hugs ~Renea
