Eden's Photo Coaster Album

First - let me remind you to scroll down to my Friday post where there is some Blog Candy to be won! Leave a comment before Wed at 10 pm on that post for a chance to win!

I made this cute coaster book for my friend Kelley whose daughter, Eden, is my Godchild. These are pictures from Easter Day at our church and include her brother, Destin and other children from church. The coasters are 4x4 and I punched and bound the book using my Bind It All.

The paper I used to cover the coasters is Phoebe from Basic Grey. I love the bright colors on it! I used my corner rounder on the paper and sanded the edges with my sanding block from Stampin Up after I attached it to the coaster. The chipboard accents throughout the pages are from Crafty Secrets. They sent me a package of them free with my last order - how sweet was that?!! I just swiped my Cameo Coral Ink over them. I added brads to the prima flowers and attached them with dimensionals to the frame.
So this is Destin and Eden - first standing by the flowered cross (the kids bring in flowers on Easter and put them inside the cross - after the service we put the flowered cross on the front steps of the church so passers by see it all day! And then we see Destin showing me how he can hang off the branch of this tree!
Here are the kids standing outside on the church steps - of course my focus is on sweet Eden and her lovely dress!
The girls on the far right are my friend Elizabeth's twins - Gweneth and Paige. They all looked so pretty (and the boys looked handsome!) in their Easter outfits!

I love making these cute photo books - thanks for taking a look!

Julia, this handmade coaster photo album is simply wonderful! I love the pretty cover and all the neat elements throughout! And these pictures are just a pleasure to look at--I love the children on Easter all dressed up in their best church outfits! What little darlings they all are...especially sweet Eden (I'm partial to a little girl in a precious white dress) :) How beautiful this book is and made with obvious love. Thanks for sharing it with us, Julia! hugs~
