My Daughter's Gift From Me

I wanted to share the album I put together to give my daughter for her birthday this last week.

I started with Flower Window 6" x 6" Album from the Creative Cuts and More store. Isn't this a beautiful color?
Those yummy flowers are  Flower #06-Set and I ordered  several : in the same color as the album, acetate, and white felt.

 Wanted to share a few views of the inside pages.
I used several dies from many companies to cut out mats for each of the pages.
The pages are empty because I wanted her to add her own pictures and memorabilia.
I used Butterflies of different sizes for the page tabs.

 I used white ribbon to tie the pages together.
If you prefer rings -you can now purchase various sizes in the store here.

I used a few shades of purple chalk to color the butterflies and a couple of the acetate flowers.
I had some soft purple pearls in my stash I added to the flower centers.
I chose to add a trellis frame in white behind the opening to give a peek to the patterned paper behind.

So glad I could share my album with you today- make sure you go to the Creative Cuts and More store to check out all the albums and supplies available.
