My Artsy Fartsy Mini Book - Grand Canyon

Sharing with you my Artsy Fartsy Mini Book


not too long again, I pull out my Pixie Kit Box, boy, can't believe how much "left-overs" from my pixie kits.....


so I cut a few patterned papers, all in different sizes...



put together a mini book....


My Artsy Fartsy Mini Book - Grand Canyon, Sedona (AZ)


filling up the pages is really easy and fun.... 


everything is from my stash, journaling tag, stickers..... bits and pieces of paper..


stamped image from my bits and pieces bowl, entry ticket to Grand Canyon National Park....


cut out words from Magazine.....


photos... notes..... sunrise and sunset schedule for the year


Quote 
 Do nothing to mar it's grandeur for the ages have been at work upon it and man cannot improve it.
Keep it for your children, your children's children, and all who came after you
~Theodore Roosevelt



full moon schedule....


I even use packaging that come with those embellishment in the pixie kits








less than 2 hours, I am done with a mini book that I can look back to when I go to Grand Canyon again (probably very soon)........

I am still away, probably in LA when you are reading this, I will visit you when I get back to my desk, meanwhile, something to keep the fun going......

This precious keepsake only took you 2 hours to create??? The book itself already made my jaw drop but also the fact that you created it in such a short time! It would take me at least 2 whole days; I'm not that fast :)
And it's fabulous. I love the mix and match of everything; gorgeous!!!
