Little Best Friends - Nani, Make Me a Book!

The phone rings last night and my daughter, Tiffany, says, "Here, talk to your granddaughter."  My four year old granddaughter, Allie, gets on the phone.  "Nani, Nani, please make me another book and send it to my box tonight!"  In her world, that translates to "Nani, Nani, please make me a card and send it to me in the mail so I can get it out of my mail box!"  Oh, and it had to be blue.  I had my evening all planned out by putting together a Saturated Canary, Magnolia, and Sassy Studio Designs cards but guess what got put aside?  Yep, when the grandbabies call, Nani comes running!

Of course, for me, I go to my Elisabeth Bell designs and printed off Little Best Friends, one of her sweet, adorable, and enchanting images.  Here is Allie's book:



This cute image reminds me of me and Allie going to the pool and beach while we were in Florida.  She would call and ask me to go swimsuit.  So stinkin cute!  I colored these sweeties with copics and added some stickles to their suits and hair because hair and swimsuits glisten in the sunlight!  I put some Diamond Glaze on their pails and added pearls all over the card.  I love me some pearls because the come from the sea!  I thought the Heidi Grace Paper was soft and subtle for the background and embossed it with my dotted swiss cuttlebug folder.  The flowers remind me of the sea roses that grow along the beaches in Maine.  So perfectly beautiful they are.

Here is a close up of these sweeties holding hands.


I added some paper and pearls to the inside and am really pleased with how this one came out.


Life is so much better when you hold hands and have fun.  Best friends, hot mess granddaughters, and the ocean always make life so much sweeter.  I love my life and hope you love yours.  Have a great day!
