My Mini Album for Pam

Hello Friends :-)

I am working on my to do list today (I am so behind). I finally got started on Pam's Mini album for a swap at Bella Creations.
I have decided to do a Grandmother's Brag Mini...Heather style :-)
So it will be vintage and flowery..and fabulous!!
I started out with some images from both Gecko Galz and
Here is the front cover so far :-)
The flowers are some of my favorite from Karen.and the Frame I  attached them to and the mannequins are from Gecko Galz.
Here is a close up 
I have inked all my die cuts that I created with Ranger's vintage Photo.  The flowers stamped in the middle are ones I drew and carved myself..and used copper perfect pearls on.  The frame is on pop dots, so Pam will be able to slide in small photos of her 4 grandchildren.  A close up of the bottom.
Here you can see how I added the words "The Grandchildren" to the frame using my Silhouette Studio program.  I also used the program to cut out all my die cuts.  Notice the welded "Our Little Blessings."  The dressforms and pansy are from Gecko galz..and are part of Helene's ""Oh la la" tag challenge this month.
I did do a little more painting...the edges are done in Delta Dark Forest Green, and the leaves are Stonewedge Green, shaded with DFG.  Lucky me...well not really..because I planned it...but I can enter this into Both Mandy's and Jackie's Challenges at 
The Flying Unicorn.I used some vintage looking fun fiber and flowers as well on the binding. Here is a close up :-)
Now to start on the inside :-)  Wait till you see what I have planned for the inside :-)
Hugs...and enjoy your day!!
