Girly Girl Album

 Awhile back I had bought the paper collection of My Minds Eye "Madison Avenue". I fell in love with all the pink and brown tones and the tower, birds and such.  I hated to cut up the paper, I didn't want to lose the images on paper, so I decided to create a girly girl album size 6x9. Used black chip board for the covers, adhered with the amazing Helmar 450 glue so love that glue. Gave the book a vintage feel with using Distress Inks (brushed corduroy and walnut stain) added some Distress Stickles (vintage photo).  Used a flower punch to create the flowers using the paper scraps, added some bling gems.

 The pretty lace trim was white to start I used Distress stain (warm lipstick) and Tattered Angels glimmer mist (tutti fruitti and coffee shop) to create the pink shades that where throughout the paper line to match. I couldn't believe how well it matched the paper. That's why I love glimmer mist so much, you can take plain lace and trims and create your own.

I just love the Eiffel tower and the book text this collection is beautiful.
I will be working in this girly girl album scrappin some pics of my girls, I will be sharing with you all.
happy creating, Peggy Lee
