"Blessed By U" Starbucks Holder Mini Album

Wow, finally time to be able to post!

I met this young couple here in Richmond, B.C. and they have been such a blessing to me. Lane & Ronny both inspire me so much, I just love being around them. Well it was Ronny's birthday and I wanted to do something special for him, something from the heart; and so I decided to use several of the many Starbucks cup holders I've been saving to create a little booklet. They love Starbucks out here! I kept seeing all these cups and their holders being either recycled or trashed and decided it's time to get creative - ya! Because this little booklet was for a man who loves the Word of God" I used the "Beatitude" scripture verses from Matthew 5, and used colours and embellishments that would not be too glitzy but still give it some zing. Using garden twine for the binding finished it off nicely with a very earthy look. Happy Birthday Ronny!

I used Fancy Pants "All Fall" 8x8 paper pack, 1 sheet of "My Minds Eye" Tres Jolie paper; embellishments are from Fancy Pants, Making Memories, Kaiser and some random chipboard pieces. I hope you enjoy!
