Happy Birthday Mini Album


First of all I must say I had no idea
how hard it would be to photograph a finished album. There is so much going on on these pages that it's hard to pick up all the detail. I made this using the October Afternoon 5 & Dime Mini Album Kit that consisted of the precut chipboard pages, double sided paper and a ring (that turned out to be too small).


I added in some of the Cosmo Cricket
Odds & Ends papers from my August Picnic Basket Kit  from Pixie Dust Paperie. Two photos of my granddaughters tuck into the pocket that was cut with a Spellbinders Labels One. I also clipped on a Tim Holtz Ideology Hanger.


I put wide eyelets on the paper backed 
photos so I could thread some thin crinkled seam binding through.


Crocheted mini flowers from I Am
Roses and tiny white flowers with rhinestone centers from Recollections add more texture to this page.


Burlap, 5 & Dime paper cut from the 8x8 
Paper Pad, a My Minds Eye brad and a Tim Holtz Memo Pin embellish this page along with two manly (a knife and a bullet) charms.


Circles cut from the 5 & Dime 8x8 Paper Pad
fit perfectly into these bottle caps. I Am Roses apple blossoms and Recollections mini roses with leaves punched with Martha Stewart's Oak Leaf and Rose Leaf punches...


and another photo tucked into the top
of this Spellbinders Labels One die cut pocket.


This page is a bit plainer with
just some Recollections pearl bling, I Am Roses skeleton leaves and a white gardenia.


Prima and Recollections flowers
teamed with punched oak leaves and TPC Studio Reel Me In Jewels on the stamped sentiment adorn this page.


I Am Roses apple blossoms, gardenia
and skeleton leaves, Recollections mini roses and bauble, Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares die cuts, more Reel Me In Jewels, a punched butterfly and a pink Maya Road Heart Trinket Pin complete this back page.
Did I mention this was a gift for my daughters 34th birthday?
Hope you have a very happy day!
