Let's Get Shabby Challenge #35 AND Scrap Therapy Mini-Album

Let's Get Shabby's Challenge is all about the saying:

Something old
Something new
Something borrowed 
Something blue


 I've used:
Old - the lace which form the skirt
New- Butterfly wings
Borrowed- the idea from the old-fashioned paper dolls
Blue- the alpha/title - 'Fly'

I cant wait to see what you might come up with...

ALL the details are HERE



working with We R Memory Keepers:

If you ever want to make a quick and easy Mini-Album especially for a gift then take a look at these 4x6pads
Cotton Tail
Down the Boardwalk
I've used: Good Day Sunshine
Pull out the pages that work and glue back to front so when the mini-album is put together, then each page has a back and front as they are turned.
I love my Crop-A-Dile as it finishes the pages off beautifully with its easy use eyelet placement and fixture. (I never 'did' eyelets before owning this tool :P :wink: )
Here's the cover of the 'Mini-Album'
And its pages:

One of the papers in the 4x6 pad has quotes and sentiments that can be cut and contrasts with the pages too. (I've used some MME's decorative brads and WRMKs Good Day Sunshine Trim, MME , bow trim
Prima alpha
Brown lace MME garland
Good Day Sunshine Stickers




Hope this has given you an idea how easy a little mini-album can come together :P :wink:
And I want to give a BIG thank-you to
for the wonderful package I received in the post!
It was full of the most delicious goodies...
Hugs and again...thanks soooooo much
just gorgeous!

Oh my goodness. Your page is just absolutely amazing. This is truly so unique and interesting and just fabulous.
And your mini album is just great. Gorgeous texture and colours. I wish I had the patience to create a mini album. Have not attempted one for years.

Beautiful page, love the colours :)
Your little book is awesome (I LOVE making books), the 'little' touches you add just make it so special--and as previously said, the texture on all your work really makes it!
