More of Kaeli's Photo Journal for Graduation! Pockets added and Quilting!

Today I had fun adding backs with pockets to each of seven cloth pages...and then did some free motion quilting on the fronts of each page.This is the back of the first page with a birthday photo of Kaeli (probably her 15th BD last year!)
Each back has a pocket for adding more photos and/or other memorabilia. Gold metallic thread dressed up this page of cousins and friends made for
a puffy quilted page.
More gold metallic...
A bit of teenage denim on the back...
Prom page got pink tulle. I like the clip art prom dress in the center that isn't
too far off from the wispy pink dress she actually wore last week to her prom.
Those pink high heels were wicked. I saw them when I was in Oregon.
You do NOT want to know how much of her own hard earned money
she spent to buy them!
~back of prom page~
The words here really popped off the page with some quilting.
I like that the questions make her think!
And on the last page I used the TAP (transfer artist paper) to print directly to the cloth
a message from me to her.
Fun swirls and hearts quilted on free motion style using variegated thread.
Now to figure out how to fasten the pages together like a book.
I am also working on a cover which will need a matching back cover both
done in quilted cloth pages.
I have a special box for the whole thing too.
Stay tuned.
And enjoy your weekend!
