Happy February!

Hello, it's Kristina again today :) I've been working on my mini album and have a couple of pages to share with you.
I got a little out of control with the embellishments and it's looking like it's going to be pretty thick, Oh well!

I've used some more of the DCWV Mariposa papers as my backgrounds.

On this page I used a Prima butterfly as my main embellishment, I thought the orange went nicely with the coppery glitter on the paper. I also added the word "dream" that I cut on my Cricut and then sprayed with Sugar Maple Glimmer Mist (I think that is my favorite color of GM right now) I inked all the edges of the page with spiced marmalade distress ink.

On this page I added a side pocket by edging some of the patterned paper with my Alterations On the Edge die (pst... it's a Sizzix die, but I totally use it in my Cuttlebug) and then adhering it to the edge of my page. The little leafy branch was also cut on my Cricut and then I hot glued some Prima mini roses in Sunrise Yellow. The larger flower is a Prima Lilliput rose that was all yellow, but I sprayed the center with some Pomegranate Glimmer Mist for a bit of contrast.

I'm almost finished with this mini and I can't wait to show it to you assembled with all my photos inside.
