Another Mini

Hello there everyone!

As you know I have been on a mini album fun frenzy. After making the ones for my family (I still have to put in the photos of our parents), I found more fabulous papers from K&Company and even DCWV, so I thought, you know, these will be fun. I can't wait to show you the one I'm working on. But here is one I made from a "Paper" swap I did last year on Life on the Scrap Beach.

I received all the papers, embellishments and flowers as a part of this swap. Aren't these sun flowers delightful?

I wanted to highlight the pretty papers in the album so on some pages, I used the card stock Irene sent to help coordinate that effort.

That big pretty sunflower is too cute to cover up. The brads came in the kit as well and go well with the flowers she had in there. I removed the plastic stem from the flower and added those copper brads. Irene made those cute tags that work well with this "Autumn" themed mini album.

I'm just loving these sun flowers.

The papers are really gorgeous - I forget where they came from (the manufacturer).

Don't you just love that little library card for the tag? That was a good way to keep highlighting the beautiful papers.

The folio works well here with the papers - just couldn't hide that beautiful vine.

She even made that cloth flower and so I added the lovely pearls to end the page. It was the best paper kit swap I've been in.

Thanks for stopping by and having a peek! Have a wonderful day!

Happy Crafting! :~)

I love your little mini album. I have really enjoyed your fun projects. Just wanted to let you know that I made one to the boxes that you made last week and then showed Arlana how to make them too. It is such a fun project. We had a great time doing them together. Thanks for the link to the tutorial. I had a great time up at Arlana's and it was good for me to be there. I needed to get my head on straight. I have had a kind of tough has been one year. So hard to believe at times. Thanks for always stopping by my blog. It puts a smile on my face everytime I see that you have visited.
Hugs, Nancy

I could actually repeat Jennie's words!
Those details, the colours, it's like every page tells a story of its own, without words, but works.

Thank you for sharing your creations here in a blogland. :)
