Shabby Chic Camera mini album...
Happy Birthday Suzie! Hey everyone! Here is something else that I made for Suzie for her birthday which is today as a matter of fact! Woo Hoo! Like I said in my last post Fiona was the lady that I watched making one of these and just had to make one for Suzie. Fiona had actually used a balsa box..like the ones that you get at Michael's but after looking high and low for one I couldn't find one anywhere and was so disappointed and had started working on something else when all of the sudden it was like Fiona had read my mind and she did a video on how to make your own. I used a little bit different material to construct mine and my measurements are different but none the less I did it! (you get a peep at Suzie's husband Don in the camera lens. He is the one that's always taking pictures of us when I visit them so I felt that it was only appropriate that he be in the spotlight of the lens)
At the time I didn't have any of the gorgeous laces that she used so I had to go with what I had and this was it. I really love how it turned out though.
I was in the middle of making this one night and it was the wee hours of the morning. I was having so much fun that I didn't want to go to bed. My mind was going 90 to nothing as I fell asleep that night morning thinking of what kind of goodies I was going to put on it and I couldn't fall asleep until I had that all worked out in my head.
As you can see in the back it opens up and I filled it full of my pictures from my trip to Oklahoma last year after I took these pictures to share with you all. I hope that she enjoys it as much as I did making it. Matter of fact....I have a couple more going right now that I can't hardly wait to get to today! I have some new laces and such that I found too and have been taking pictures of the process in case anyone wants a tutorial on how I made it and what my measurements were. Of you can go to jennings644 and watch Fiona make one. I may post my tutorial anyway because my measurements are a bit different and lots of you like looking at the blog but chose to remain silent so since I can't read minds and I see that my tutorials get the most traffic then I guess I'll post one for you all. It would be nice if you would give me some feedback on things though.
Have a great day everyone and I think I have something else to show you...two more things I believe.
Oh and thank you again Fiona for so much inspiration!
