Funky new album....

I made this little album out of some chipboard and some card stock. It has a number of extra flaps to lift and some odd little places for photos. It ended up looking for all the world like a little journal (with a really pretty cover thanks to Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden).












This is a fun blend of altered art and vintage funky, it was fun to do. Some of the images are from Crafty Secrets, the beautiful flowers are from the wonderful store Wild Orchid Crafts, papers are from a number of different sources- Graphic 45, Pink Paislee, Webster's Pages, and odds and ends from others. I purchased the two vintage postcards on EBAY, of course!Thanks for taking a peek!
God Bless,

I have been a busy bee!

I have a new tin to post with a little white picket fence covered in climbing roses. Pretty and sweet.








I LOVE the pink Gingham paper, the shade and hue are amazing! It made a perfect background. I used Blue Skies Glimmer Mist in the area over the fence to give it a bit of a "sky" feel. The little picket fence was a find at Home Depot of all places!  It was part of a Christmas collection of houses. I attached the fence then added the "vines" and curled them around the fence. Roses went on last in several similar colors for depth. I then added the images and trims. Fun fun! I filled it with 6 different Valentine's I made.  Make something different and fun this week!
God Bless!
