Sweet Memories Mini Album

Hi friends, I'm back from CHA, we had a fantastic show.  Thank you to all our wonderful friends that stopped by the Heartfelt Creations booth.  Today I'm sharing a mini album I created with all the pretties from the "Majestic Morning" collection from Heartfelt Creations.
Did lots of layering and flowers on the cover.
For the spine I used some white book binding tape painted with a couple of acrylic paints and embossed.
I used some of the card front images and created pockets with them to place inserts for journaling or extra photos.
Thank you for stopping by, make sure to visit the HC Blog for tons of inspiration.
