New Mini Album

Just a quick post to show off my most recent mini album. This can be an insert for a bigger mini album or just as a small mini album to pop in to your purse or whatever as a "Brag Book". I made this from a tutorial by PaperDream Design on You Tube which you can find here: PaperDream Design Mini Album

 I used the "Rose Quartz" paper collection from Prima, this is such a pretty paper line! I hope to do a video of the whole album this week and will post it here on my blog. You can click on the photo to see a larger picture. TFL!

Precious Girl

I had this photo of my daughter and I in a frame in my living room and decided I should scrap it. Where did the time go, my daughter's only 5 in this photo, she's now 26!  I'm feeling old, lol.

I used the Kaisercraft "Rose Avenue" paper collection for this layout. I used a bit of multi medium with one of my stencils on this along with using some Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst spray. I used a piece of pink cardstock for my background paper which then allowed me to use the different left over paper pieces from other layouts I'd done using this paper collection. I cut and layered the different pieces until I was happy with the design. I then distressed and inked all of the papers and glued them down. I backed the photo with some blue cardstock from my stash and added some cardboard to the back of the photo to lift it up from the other papers. I die cut some leaf flourish's and added them to the layout and then added all my flowers. I found some metal tags in my stash, one that said "Precious" and one that said "Girl" and a metal heart and added them to the layout. I was quite pleased at how my layout turned out. Here's the finished layout...
 I'd love to hear any comments you may have on this layout. Thanks for stopping by!
