Anniversary Belli Challenge

I made a mini album out of my cake ingredients. I thought for a day as it was difficult to come up with ideas for what my ingredients ended up being. Well at least I thought it was difficult until I got started. Then the fun began.
My Ingredients:
Designer Paper
Chipboard
Buttons
Brads
Ribbon
I started out with a mini chipboard album I purchased at a dollar store. I hated the front of it so this is where the fun began was to change the front of my mini album. I traced around my chipboard front and back and cut out designer paper and glued to the front and back of my album. Inside the front to and inside the back cover to match. I think took a die cut flower and die cut our 3 pieces of cereal box and glued them together to make another piece of chipboard and decorated that with the designer paper that I also used the flower die cut on. Glued them to the chipboard flower and took black ink and inked around the edges to make it stand out from the same designer paper album. Put a two pop dots on the back of it and added it to the front of my album. Added a pink button to that with some hemp tied on the button which I figured would look good for a flower center.
So now that is the designer paper, the button and the chipboard down. All that is left is the brads and ribbon. See much easier than you was thinking huh?
I dug out a Celebration Clear Embellishment and added Rhinestone brads to this and put adhesive on the back and added in the bottom right hand corner.
Lastly I added black and red ribbon on the rings of the book to complete it.
I hope you all like the book. I will be finishing up the pages and will share with you throughout the rest of the week. I am excited to get it done. Thinking I will be putting my daughters graduation samples of pictures we took in this book. We took many of them but picked a few favorites. This could be her little memory book of the fun we had taking the pictures.
