Mini Album for 60th Birthday

As mentioned previously I have working on a mini album the past few weeks. It is my 2nd only ever mini album (won't even go there with my first - cringe material!) and I am really please with the outcome. Here is the finished product

Using painted corrugated cardboard and tulle as the background with Kaiser Pattern paper.
I download a street lamp from clipart and applied crackle which is hanging off a scrapware photo corner with our jump rings

The branch is from scrapware which I wrapped string around, inked and crackled the leaves.
Added our pearls
owl charm
cream hydrangeas

Various brown flowers
I sprayed Creme de chocolat glimmer mist over a piece of chipboard (borrowed from mum - thanks) to create a mask
Cream cotton lace
Camera charm (inked with Timber Brown Stazon)
Together Tag Charm
Brown Seed Beads twisted around tulle which I inked with Timber Brown Staz On and a splash of Crystal kindy glitz
Scattered our Pearls around
Brown stemmed flowers
Blue tipped flower centred with our cream scroll felt heart

Again I sprayed glimmer mist on chipboard for the background
Cream cotton lace
Brown Wooden Buttons
cream hydrangeas
The chipboard is Scrapware Kim Flourish which has been painted and inked.


As mentioned in previous post I used tissues on the Scrapware Audrey Mannequin. First I inked with Opera Pink ink, made a skirt with tulle and added pink organza ribbon for the waist band. Tissues next for the top, sprayed with Pink Taffy Glimmer Mist and our pink glass seed beads for a necklace.

Cream cotton lace
Heart Ribbon Slide
Heart Locket and Small Key Charms
Family Rhinestone Words
and the scrapware sunflower covered in tissue as mentioned in the last posting.

And finally on the back page I have made a photo holder for any other photos from the party.

I have 3 family members who are turning 60 in the next few months, I know 2 of you read my blog ... just for the record ... this album ain’t for any of you LOL

TFL everyone
Hope you have a great week
