Doodlebug Mini……..

I don’t know how your summer’s been treating you, but it’s been raining for 2 weeks straight up here in MN – and barely warm enough for shorts :(  So, today I’m bringing some bright cheeriness to hopefully lift some gloomy spirits:)

First off is a delightfully bright album called ‘Happy Spring’ that I made using Doodlebug‘s ‘Flower Box’ Collection. I fell in love with the refreshing bright color palette of this collection the moment I saw it – it was so fun to work with and had a lot of different coordinating elements & embellishments to play with:)  And the delicious floral patterns are versatile enough for a variety of themes: sunny adventures, birthdays – basically all things that make everyday beautiful… So I thought this album would make a perfect memento for sweet memories, as well as a beautiful ‘display/decor’ piece, or an unique & treasured gift for any friend or family member!

     It’s a pretty decent sized album – I used the 6×6 burlap covered chipboard album by Little Yellow Bicycle, and it ended up being 8 pages long – 14 decorated pages – plus 8 double-sided card inserts for extra photos and journaling. Each page is loaded with handmade flowers & embellishments, journaling, and matching decorative frills – and I machine stitched borders around all the pages & photo placements :) I mainly used the coordinating embellishments, but added some stick pins from lyb & Maya Road, as well as some enamel dots (one of my new product faves!) & brads from MME

Anyway – that’s it for now… Have a fabulous weekend!!  TFL & God Bless:)
