Mini album, (part 3), the end

And here is the rest of it. The pictures weren't as easy to take the more mobile my daughter became so a lot of times there weren't that many to choose from. Plus I almost forgot to take photos some months. Again this is Beautiful Blooms 2, the die cut and matching stamp as well as the leaves. Changed it up a bit by putting the date in the flower. And used a different ink, the pink shimmery Brilliance one, just so it would show up better.
Same thing for this one. I tried to add some diamond stickles to the flowers, it didn't really show up too well.
Here are some felt flowers that Eva sent me a while back. I just added buttons. Couldn't find a button small enough for the tiniest flower. I think I might go back and punch a paper circle or something and stick it to the center so it matches the rest of the flowers.
I got these flowers from the Creating Keepsakes Convention when I took an SEI class. It's from the Mimosa collection, happened to nicely match my daughter's shirt. Then I stuck a papertrey ink button on. I only have the white/cream mix and spring mix PTI buttons but they go with a lot of things.
This is a chipboard flower from Maya Road that I got during a sale at Two Peas in a Bucket a while ago. So bad that I haven't used one until now. I painted it with some acrylic ink I bought a while back after I took a Creating Keepsakes Convention class. Then I stamped the center with one of the flowers/centers from Technique Tuesday's Kabloom which again, I got from a CKC class. I was a little impatient and the ink hadn't completely dried on the edges, so when I was trying to put the flower back together, some of the white ink got onto the flower, oh well. I was too lazy to try to repaint the flower then having to let it dry all over again. Note to self, next time it might be easier to mark the back of the pieces to tell which way they fit together again.
Next I used the original Beautiful Blooms. I had bought the matching Cuttlebug flower/scalloped circle die to use with it.
And lastly I ran out of flower ideas but then remembered I had some cardstock stickers from K&Company that matched the previous ribbon. There were 2 huge flower stickers so I just went with this smaller one. And a residual swirly piece. This one swirls a little funny, but I was too lazy to cut another piece.
The end, whew! Now to try and figure out what to make next. It's nice to do a mini album that I can actually finish in a somewhat timely fashion (at least for me in my world).
