The reason for this mini album? My daughter's very first horseback riding lesson. I know...I'm an uber proud Mum. Our daughter is 7 and has been asking to ride since last fall. We were in the midst of trying soccer at the time which she enjoyed but is not so much into the team thing. Which is absolutely fine. So we went through the Winter and once Spring hit I started calling around to the many Equestrian centers we have near where we live. I found the most perfect stable for her and our family. They are wonderful, caring, and nurturing AND they have the most stunning horses and ponies. She's had three lessons so far and is really taking to it. I think this is her sport. Sigh...I just love it. Here is the picture that inspired the color palette.
So, to honor this occasion, I'm creating a mini-album with pics from her first lesson. I have the cover done and I'm almost done with the first page but I have a little sneak peek of the cover to show you.
I pulled lots of scrap papers (Making Memories, Recollections, MME, and Bazzill) in blue and limes along with an assortment of stickers and embellishments. I added the pop of red in lieu of pink as it just seemed to work better with the papers I had.
As you can see, I've used some delicious resin flowers that I got here as well as my MFT Fishtail Banner Die-namics to really make the cover pop.
I threaded my sewing machine with red thread to make the entire cover pop!
I promise to share more when it's all done!
