What Do You Get...

...when you cross a WWII B-17 bomber and a scrapbooker's husband? A mini book all about his adventure, of course!

I love making mini books. They are pretty quick to make, and if you stick to a single theme and style, come together fairly easily. I created this grungy mini book for my husband to commemorate his recent ride in a restored WWII B-17. He had a blast!

I used a mini album that I already had, then added crackle paint and embellishments to the cover. I made little "danglies" to hang from the rings. I distressed and inked each page, then added some stamping, distressed cardboard and chipboard, and random embellishments throughout.

He loved it, and now has something special to remember his trip.

Take a look at some of the inside pages:

I left some blank areas so he can add journaling later. (He looked at me like - what the heck is "journaling"?)

This is cool! I loved the flight and then my lovely Zunky Chic wife made this for me. I have it sitting on my desk at work and my co-workers always come by and look at it.

Absolutely love this, what airfield is this plane on?
How wonderful he got to take a flight in this. This Liberty Belle is one of the lucky ones to survive WWII. Thousands were not so lucky, like The "Sharon Belle".
