lovely mini love

Here's a mini I did some weeks back for my niece. My sister loooovvveeee this album. I made this with a baby girl theme in mind. (as you can see all the pink and flowers there)
Some details: - I dry brush white paint on this Maya Road Mini Album - so that my papers do not have to fit exactly - and the white shows -next I brush some pink paints on the edges - this method of doing Mini Album fits a time scrap person like me - I dont have to fuss over the paper fitting in, then sanding the ends, then wishing it was more perfect! LOL
- I like that the edges of this mini can house '3D' items like those flowers and bottles - the trims shows off the edges of this layered mini well Can you see the little trinket/charms.... cute little shoes?
Add in a Maya Road Kraft Envelope? Dry brush it to make it more vintage. Stamping helps, I think!
I am falling in love with Crafty Secrets Vintage cards and stuff.
Oh......... it took me a while to part with my fave fave Melissa Frances White Resin stuff. It is precious......... !
Alright, that's all i have to share today. Thanks for dropping by! SEe you this week, I have some wheeeezzzing good news!!!

Wow, I am just in love with this mini album, Wendy! I love the long format and how the edges of each page show through. Love all the 3d goodies you were able to add to the edging. Each one is it's own little artpiece. :)
