A New Mini Album

Hi, Friends.

Here's a little mini I whipped up over the long Memorial Day weekend. It was nice to have 3 days to scrap and I used them to my full advantage. I made 4 los and this album.

A fellow PTA board member hired me to make an album for a friend of her's who's having a baby. The baby's name is unknown as of yet so we went with "Baby Girl". I had a glorious time using lots of pink. Having a son, I hardly ever use that "girly" color so I was having a grand old time. I didn't want to use too much pink, though, so I mixed it up with some other pastels and even a little brown.

On most of the pages, I created pockets into which I inserted tags that I ink-blended on both sides. It's a messy business that ink-blending but it creates such lovely results. Those tags can be used for journaling or even for more pictures. I also used 2 of my crocheted flowers. I recently learned how to make an 8 petal, bi-colored flower so I added one of those as well.

Here's that 8 petal, bi-colored crocheted flower in the bottom right corner of the " I ".

I hope you enjoyed. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
