Snow's A Comin'!!

They say we're in for a big one. I hit the grocery store at 7am this morning and grabbed a few needed things. I'm ready to hunker down!

I have a mini album to share with you today. I made this for a friend using lots of Tattered Angels goodies. I used Tutti Fruiti, Scarlet Red and Pink Taffy mixed together throughout the album. I made it for a friend who was recently engaged.






Here's a peek at some of the inside pages. I did some stamping with the Regal Glimmer screens. And I spritzed cream colored flowers (and stamped on some, too) to make them coordinate. I left the album blank so my friend could add her own photos and journaling...


















So, while I normally don't have the patience to do minis, I just love how this one turned out!

Just one last thing to share with you today. Time went by soooooooo quickly this morning as I worked out on the eliptical. That's because I was reading my copy of Lisa Pace's amazing book, Delight in the Details. I'm in awe! I've always adored Lisa's work and having a whole book of it is such a treat. I preordered it in December and it came the other day. I totally recommend this book if you love glitter, glam, vintage or shabby!

So, keep us East Coasters in your thoughts as this strom bears down!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

What a gorgeous mini album, Anabelle! Love the girly glam look and all your fun techniques with the TA goodies. You do such beautiful things!
Hope you're hanging in there with the snow! We had some last weekend that shut us down until Thursday. We were told we might get more this weekend, but so far it's only been a few light and fluffy flakes.
