October Cocoa Daisy kits: Hello Fall 2012

This page is also a mini album! It's a mini album ON a page! One of my favourite ways to get lots of pictures on a layout without having to deal with two pages, photos not working together, etc. I decided to gather all of my random and leftover fall photos/Instagrams from 2012, and put them on this page. And I LOVE it. 

This big gold sparkly hello was from the Cocoa Daisy Parkway add-on. I sort of totally love them. The gold glitter is perfect. And for you crazy glitter-phobes, let me assure you, this glitter is awesomely stuck in place. To create the cover for this mini, I stuck the hello down onto kraft tissue paper... and then trimmed all around it, so that way the part that hangs off the cover wouldn't be sticky. And after I had trimmed around the entire word I had not ONE piece of glitter on me anywhere. So, if you're concerned about stray glitter, these might be the perfect gold glittery words for you. 

I cut these labels apart from one of the Day In the Life cards -- and I loved the bit of colour they added right in that spot. Those gold glittery polka dot stickers (also from the DITL kit) are awesome!! I could definitely use a few more sheets!!  The little leaves you see poking out are one of the several cut files that are free with your Cocoa Daisy subscription!! 

Here's the photo under the title/front cover of the mini... I added that gold/map print vellum heart to the tree photo. It just fit so well. And if it fits, why not?

Another page inside.

Here you can see how I just sewed right down the middle of the page. That's how it's all held together!
