Welcome Little One - mini album

What a mammoth effort I have put into this mini album I have to share with you all today.  Here is my DT creation for the latest challenge at Southern Girls Challenge where this time the theme is my all time favourite - FLOWERS - yay! !  I am also entering this into the I am Roses monthly challenge as I have used their gorgeous flowers throughout.

 This gorgeous little album measures 6" x 6" and is FULL of tags, cards, flaps, pockets, booklets and quotes.  Throughout I've used papers from the Kaisercraft  'Pitter Patter - Girl' paper collection and collectables.  Every edge has been inked using TH Spun Sugar distress ink.

I got the idea for this from one of the lovely Maja DT's -  Cathy McGrath who showed off her version of this album here.   I followed her link to the You Tube tutorial where she learnt this from Ginger at My Sisters Scrapper here.  Its a 6 part tutorial, but well worth every minute.

Still photos really don't show this off to its full potential, but I hope you can see it well enough to enjoy and be enthused to make your own.  It really is quite easy.I


There are LOTS of places for photos and journaling.  Inside every page a large 6" x 6" photo mat is tucked (you will see them with the tabs to help pull them out.  I made a couple of small envelopes which store more cards, for journaling and the waterfall on the inside back cover adds even more photo mats.
I tried to use as much of the extras on the sticker sheet and collectables as possible.  And of course it wouldn't be a girlie album without heaps of drop dead gorgeous flowers.  I've used some rosette roses, but mostly I am Roses blooms.  Here I've used Daisies, small daisies, cherry blossoms, S10 blooms, rosebuds, leaves.  And of course pearls, rhinestones, satin ribbon & seam binding.
Now this is finished I am packing it up very safely and posting it off to my best mates daughter in England who just this week had her baby girl.  I'm hope Ally will love this and put all her photos and memorabilia of Lani's first days in here.
