Ya-Ya's Uncensored

What a great evening of friends and fun. We try to do this once a year and I always love the results. While we do have many wonderful shots, it is the unsensored, fun ones that I wanted to honour. The ones that always get left behind. A special shout out to Tanya's husband for taking photos along side my camera & tripod. Because of it, the silliness was captured ... and these photos don't even touch on the seriously silly ones.
I finished this mini album a while back and am just getting around to posting it. I painted it blue, applied a crackle medium then finished with the pink paint. The inside pages were raw chipboard spritzed with glimmer mist. I love that look BUT, the raw chipboard soaked it up so much that it took me an entire bottle to get good coverage of all the pages. 90% of the materials are from Noteworthy-Delanie. The rest are other Noteworthy lines as well as Doodlebug glitter. Thanks to the wonderful Maya Road for the album AND for their initials embossed on the back. I was able to glitter it, write above and below "Created by" and "Mellisa Ross," respectively. Gotta take the opportunity while you can! :)

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians.
