I mini booked! It's been so long since I've hand made a mini start to finish. This was a little labor of love.  I worked on it in little bits over about two weeks.

I used my Little Black Dress kit, my Silhouette Cameo, Primrose Color Shine, 1 sheet of white cardstock and a sheet of pink to create this mini! I even designed all of the cuts and made my own mini printables for each of the pages.

My inspiration came from the show GIRLS. It's an HBO show that I really liked Season 1. Season 2? Meh, not so much. Essentially it's about 4 recent grads living in Brooklyn. There's a lot of Sex & the City references but there's really not much there beyond the fact that 4 female friends interact. I'm not sure that I'd recommend it to ya. The content is a bit riske. But maybe you like that, I don't know.

But anyhow, they have a really great show opener. It's literally just the world GIRLS in a great deco font on a plain background. So simple and classic! I found a few articles about it, you can read more here.

I wanted to create a mini about my own GIRLS. This one features my top 5 ladies. After Mama who is clearly numero uno, they really aren't in any particular order. They're all my besties though!

The mini book is a match book. I was directly inspired by Kristina Nicolai-White's video on Two Peas. I'll warn you, this post is very photo heavy. But aren't all mini book posts? I want you to see the details! So I'll stop typing now and let you feast your eyes on my latest and last Little Black Dress kit creation.

cheers & besos,
