Spring Mini Album.....

Well I finally finished the front and back cover of my Mini Album.  When I went shopping this week, I found these little rings to hold it together.    Now I'm ready to move onto other things.....isn't it terrible how short my attention span is?  I like quick projects and I'm not sure I will ever finish this one, but I wanted to show you the cover.  I plan to put this away and maybe finish it for a Christmas gift later.  I think it is kinda funny....I worked so hard trying to get the covers just right and I kept adding layers of color and waiting for it to dry and then shimmer paint and waiting for it to dry and then Pearl Ex Spray and waiting for it to dry.....all that waiting just totally did me in.  Now I have gone and covered most of that up with flowers and lace and I'm thinking of adding some ribbons and pearls too....but not today. ......... or tomorrow.  I need a rest from this little project! 

I hope you are having a great weekend...It is spitting rain and cool here today...I think it's probably Red Bud Winter.  We have all these little winters here in the spring.  Next will be Dogwood and then Whippoorwill, and then Blackberry winter.  Once we have the little Blackberry winter it is time for warm temps and sunshine....looking forward to that!  OK enjoy the rest of your weekend...and remember whatever you are doing, take a little time for you and Breathe!

Another gorgeous, gorgeous project Glenda. You always make things that look like they take hours and hours to create. Your flowers and butterfly are gorgeous and the layout is fabulous. Whoever receives this for Christmas will receive a real treasure!

Well, the little bit that shows under the flowers and lace sure looks gorgeous! I can see the shimmer and the nice finish. The flowers and butterfly are just dreamy! So beautiful, Glenda!
