Shelf decoration: Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker

Hello everyone! Here is a little decoration for my shelves once my scrapbook corner is painted and finished! I used Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker's House chipboard album and a little of every one of their first 6 paper lines.

Please click on image to see it larger.

If you know me, you know I don't really like altered items. Although I find them pretty, I also find them useless. Dust catchers. So when I make something, there has to be a purpose behind it. I decided to turn this into a reminder of my closest friends. Each house/store represents someone.

"Fondant Bakery" is for Bella: she's an awesome amateur baker who made the Dora cake in this post!
"481" is for me. My screen name is imzadi481. Imzadi is a reference to Star Trek and 481 is my wedding date (read the french-canadian way: 4 aout 2001)
"White-Rabbit's Toy Store" is for Erin. White-Rabbit is her screen name.
"5 Cats Café" is for JJ, coffee enthusiast and owner of, well, 5 cats! :)
"Cloth Baby" is for Noémi, who uses adorable cloth diapers on her baby.
"Hockeyville" is for Caro, a big hockey fan!

So there you go. A visual reminder of my friends that'll look pretty on a shelf, too!


Before I go, my sweet reader Carolynn asked me for a tutorial for the pinwheel flowers on my most recent layout. The idea wasn't mine, I saw it on the Pebbles blog. If you are interested in this easy tutorial, here is the link.

Thanks for stopping by♥
