It's A Beautiful Life - Mini Album

Here's a mini album of a family dinner we had to celebrate my daughter's 15th birthday.

The album and patterned paper are from Glitz Designs and all flowers, leaves, crystal and pearl flourishes are from Zva Creative.

I covered the mini album in off-white hemp and embellished it with flowers, leaves, crystals, a doily, hand-crinkled seam binding and lace trims for a soft look against the rugged hemp.

A close-up of the flower, leaves and brown and champagne crystal flourish from Zva Creative. I added a Glitz giant rhinestone to the centre of the Zva flower. Pretty!

The inside pages:

I used papers from three Glitz collections on this mini - Pretty In Pink, French Kiss and Vintage Blue.

A pearl crystal flourish from Zba Creative and more flowers and leaves from Zva, nestled amidst some crinkled seam binding.

The spread of delicious food we had:

The inside pages of the Glitz mini album are coincidentally covered in a hemp patterned paper. :)
