Happy Monday Morning!

Hope you're all doing well.
I was thinking of changing my blog header for spring, and then the Penmaker told me we are suppose to have snow the rest of the week... ugh!!! Thoughts of Florida are swirling around in my head again.
I did a mini album to 
give to my son's sister-in-law who had a birthday last week...

The covers are cut from
black medium weight chipboard. For the most part, I've used Prima's Fairy Belle collection. 

The butterfly here was
cut with Alterations Mini Butterflies and inked with Black Soot, Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey Distress Ink. I curved the wings with a paint brush handle.

I made this with lots
of tags for journaling and photo spots so she can put in what she wants. Flowers from I Am Roses.

These mini photo tags
were cut from the Timeless Type 8x8 stack from DCWV. The wooden clock is Prima.

Each of the pages are
cut from a single sheet of patterned paper 8.5" square, then trimmed and folded as above, adhered with Score Tape forming a pocket. 

I added a decorated
#8 black tag in the pocket end of each page, but on this one I added a photo of her hubby, our son and the Penmaker. We girls were shopping in the mall and when we came out of the store, saw our guys watching a basketball game through the window of a sporting goods store... couldn't miss a shot like that!
