MINI ALBUM by ANNETTE

Hello all 
Today I'm sharing my mini album I made for a gift 
I have had this box with concertina pages in my stash
for absolute ages ... 
one of those 'one day' projects!!!!
 the papers had been around for a while also 
yes I admit it ....  I'm a hoarder !!!
So keeping that in mind I hunted out other older stuff
to create this mini ... 
FRONT COVER

rub-ons (Daisy D), door knob & butterfly (Megs Garden)
red ribbon tied with a flat bow to highlight.
Inside cover & page one 
roses washi tape, punched butterfly (Martha Stewart) gingham ribbon
quote reads"
In love & in dreams there are not impossibilities"
pages two and three
papers (7 gypsies, creative imaginations) embellishment (creative imaginations)
music washi tape
pages four and five
narrow black tags trimmed with white rub-ons for writing notes? set in a pocket 
paper doiley, ribbon & epoxy flower
  pages six and seven
punched butterflies ( Martha Stewart), stamped diamonds, rub-on (unknown) 
LOVE epoxy (creative imaginations) doiley (Martha Stewart)
pages eight and nine

BLACK with 2 for AUGUST

Loved the colours for the BW2 challenge this month
The beautiful photo featured on my LO was on facebook 
(all credit to unknown original photographer).. 
After the recent tragedies in the world .. 
I felt it epitomized a sense of FREEDOM & LOVE ..
it bought comfort to me ( & joy to my heart) 
as I prayed for global peace, understanding 
& uplifted devastated families at this time...
EPITOME of LOVE & FREEDOM
