Lyric Paper Bag Mini

I love music!
I love good music... and I love Prima's new collection... Lyric!

This collection with all
 it's collage patterns, was perfect for making a paper bag mini album with the 12 x 12 inch sheets. 

If you frequent
my blog, you'll remember that this mini takes only two small paper bags... I get mine at Michaels. You can see how it's done here.

Each time I make
one of these, I do it slightly different... adding more photo or journaling spots.

I understand why
crafters who make mini albums get hooked on them. There are so many variations to each style, and dozens of styles to try.

A Prima Lyric
music note metal paper clip.

A tag with a wide
eyelet from We Are Memory Keepers and a bit of pink tulle.

Back cover.
The bauble was a Recollection's clearance item I got at Michael's a couple years ago. I bought several packages, but am now down to the final few pieces. How I would love to have gotten more of these beauties.

I fussy cut the bird
cage and popped it up with 3-D foam adhesive.

The clock and black 
flower are by Prima and the white blossom topping it is from I Am Roses. They're adhered to a tri-pocket holding two tags. The roses at the bottom left were fussy cut and added to that pocket.

The flowers on the cover
are all from I Am Roses, the smokey bling is Recollections, the mini binder clip is from Staples, and the Distress Ink is Black Soot.
The weather here has
taken a drastic change (again). The Penmaker and I drove down to the grocery store and discovered we were way under dressed when we got out of the car and noticed everyone in coats. There's a frost warning for tonight which means all the flowers we planted will need to be covered. Who would have thought that would happen? 
Take care, friends, and have a happy weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, what a stunning mini, Linda! Sooo love that it's crafted from only two little brown bags, and love all the detail and pockets and tags. Such beautiful papers, too.
Sorry to hear about your weather. We've had nothing but wacky weather here, too. Sure doesn't seem like summer is about to hit.
