A Simple Mini Book with Simple Stories

I have a simple mini book to share with you today that I made for my Dad's 60th birthday.

I like to keep my Mini Books simple purely as this is the only way that I know I will actually finish them.
I started with these 12x12 papers from the Simple Stories - Daily Grind collection.
I am so drawn to these happy colours.

A much as I love the month sides, I wanted to use the other sides.
I cut them in to 4x6 cards and stuck them back to back giving me 6 pages to work with.

I used the matching sticker sheets to embellish.

And these Chipboard Stickers too which I just love.
The papers are wonderful and make making a mini book very easy.  
Just a few stickers here and there were added.

I used the chipboard stickers on the front and back pages and punched a hole in each page to add a book ring to hold the album together.
I'm really pleased with how the album came out.
I think this paper collection has to be one of my favourites right now.
