A Magical Celebration

Babies are popping up all around me and here is another mini album I made for a co-worker's new baby -2- b... Hailey Miranda. Here nursery theme is (of course) Disney girls so I decided to create a castle with the the ladies. I purchased the chipboard castle at my local Scrapbook store and the Disney cutouts came in a package that I also purchased at the same store. The papers I used from my stash.  The first page is Mini hosting the album and the photo area is a waterfall book that allows 5 photos and or journaling.
Next is Snow white and the bling I used is Prima "Say it in Crystals" which you can purchase at my Etsy store and Tim Holtz's Chit Chat stickers . Added stickles to Snow White for a bit more bling.
The next page is Ariel. Kept it simple. Added dew drops for water effect and some sea shells and pearls from my collection.
Cinderella was the next page and I decided to do tags for allowing pictures and journaling. Added acrylic butterflies that can be purchased at my Etsy store.
Up next is Mulan... Paper is from Recollections Neopolitan collection. Made a flip page for displaying pictures. Mulan had black feathers and cherry blossom flowers added to her for interest.
For Belle I decided to use Sizzix "Crown" die cut to hold tags. Added crown brads for embellishments and Belle's dress was blinged up with some Stickles.  
Rapunzel was the next page and stickled the stars on the paper, and added crocheted flowers in which I added rhinestones for the centers.
Frog Princess was next and I decorated the castle walls with green stickers squares that can be purchased at my Etsy shop.  Used gold glitter paper for the matting the photo area and Stickles were added to her dress.
Sleeping Beauty was embellished with "I Am Roses" micro mini pink rosebuds and tiny white roses. The frames came with the Disney diecut packages. I used 3-D popup dots on all the die cuts including the frames.
Last but not least is Pocahontas and Jasmine, kept very simple. Made a pop out book which allowed for 8 pictures or journaling. Used jute to tie the book closed attached mini wooden letter tags for Hailey's initials... ( I think it's funny that her initials are H & M ... and that is where mommy works... humm do you mommy did that on purpose???)
And then to finish off the book, I tied random ribbon and tulle and added a beautiful crown charm that I purchased at Michaels . I made little flags, attached to toothpicks and glued them to the top of the castle.
I hope you enjoyed this inspiration. Book was really simple, only took me about 3 days to make.... Toodles  xoxo
