Caitlan's Boardbook

Caitlan is the daughter of a co-worker. She is a cheerleader at RHS.
For this book, I used mostly Everyday Paperdolls, Mickey and Friends, and Lyrical Letters Cricut carts.

A look at the entire book.

On the "C", is chose to spell out her name and use stickles on it.

For the "A", I went to our Tiger Walk and made notes/drawings from Caitlan's Tiger Paw. I copied it almost identical. I think she will really be pleased with this page.

Back of A - Caitlyn's nickname on a megaphone
Front of I - That pic didn't turn out well at all. I used a mat with a chipboard "C" along with a cheerleader pieced using EDPD.
Back of I - I ran the basketball through the Cuddlebug with the swiss dots folder for added dimension. I also used gunmetal stickles on the net.
Front of T - I really like the football. I ran it through the Cuddlebug using the swiss dots embossing folder also. Then, I decided to sew the lines on the football. It is so cute!
Front of L - This little cheerleader is in her warm-up suit. It is a replica of her actual warm-up attire.
Back of L - I wanted to do a "girly" page because Caitlan is a beautiful girly girl. I used the Mickey cart to construct the fingernail polish and along with the lipstick on the next page. I stickled over the top of the polish, and then tied a black bow to accent the bottle.
Front of second A - The lipstick tube and the purse is cut from shiny paper. They are the cutest little things! I also really like the hair ribbon.

Back of second A - I decided to include a page where Caitlan could list her favorite cheers if she chooses to do so. If not, the lined paper can be used for journaling, etc...
Back of N - Don't you love that #1 finger?!? We are actually runner-up in football in our state in class/division 5A. We had a great season! Congrats team/cheerleaders/coaches!!!!!

I know you can't see it, but I used ribbon on the end banner. It really added interest to that page. Aymee said she liked the way I used smaller letters as the banner got more narrow.
The is the back of the book. I really believe Caitlan will love it!!!!
Well, off to work on an altered project.
Merry Christmas,
