Photo Album

Hi!
Well, as promised I'm back with my post. This is a project I've been working on these past few days for a friend's birthday. I was lucky enough to have received one of these from my beautiful blogging friend Linda so I decided to give one a try. I absolutely loved doing it and I really hope my friend will like it. It is so very easy to do, especially when you have co-ordinating papers, lol!!!
I used Prima flowers, border & retro flower punches, metal embellishments, tulle, ribbon and adhesive pearls to embellish the pages.
I hope the photos show well - they still don't really do the album justice though, it's so much nicer in real life!

That's it for today! I'm out enjoying the gorgeous sunshine later today with friends at their pool. Tomorrow I think will involve some more back-to-school shopping for the boys. Boys and shopping don't really ever mix well together so I know it will be as short a trip as possible! Hopefully that means there'll be some crafting time for me as I hear there is supposed to be rain tomorrow!
I hope you're all enjoying a fabulous day!
Hugs,
Danielle x
