My First Word Book

Boy that title sounds like I'm just learning to read or something! I am working on making my first mini album which happens to be a word book as well. I decided to do the word love, as I adore making love type stuff. This is just the start of my book. I decided to use paper from one of my Basic Grey paper pads, I am so in love with this paper! I cut the base of the book pages out of cereal boxes. This is my first time ever cutting cardboard w/ my Cricut. I've got to say the Shredded Wheat box cut much easier than the Honey Bunches box, go figure that one out~
 Don't you just love the little "love birds?!" I do. They make me smile every time I look at them! They are complete with green crystal eyes that sparkle so pretty. I also glittered the white part of their faces and the pink wings.
Of course I had to add the sweet kitty to this book. Somewhere on this page or the one opposite it, it will have "smitten kitten." She's got green sparkly eyes and a pearl necklace too!
I've been waiting to make this bird house and doesn't it go great with the birdie paper behind it? I think one of the pages might say "love nest" or something like that.
I am having so much fun with this book. I can't wait to finish it!

Here's my bit 'o wisdom for the weekend....make sure when you are buying crystals and you want to hot fix them, read the packages carefully! I bought mine in a hurry and 2 of the 4 packages I got were NOT heat set and I didn't figure that out until too late. I will still use them, it will just be harder because they are so small.

Hope you all have a great evening!

I love your word book so far! And yes, the birdhouse goes great with that paper! Can't wait to see how it turns out completely.
