White Burlap and Lace Photo Album
Welcome and thank you for taking time to stop in!!
I am home from my journey to Ohio with my eldest daughter and grandchildren.
(My dear husband is buried there and we went to mark the one year anniversary. My heart is full and even breaking; I miss him so very much. And he would have loved this trip - my sweet wonderful man~ So much beauty to behold.)
We saw SO MANY LOVELY THINGS along the way. The gorgeous fiery colors of the trees and shrubbery. And wonderful old barns! (I am an avid fan: ) The views were spectacular as we drove the nearly 3000 miles to and from~ Each state offering something unique and interesting~
Today I am sharing a small photo album I made (maybe 5"X6"), using white burlap, canvas and lace. There is a piece of 'bird' paper (isn't it pretty! : ) from (click here>) Pion Designs Scrapbook paper from Sweden, (I inked the edges w/distress ink)
a bit of white corrugated board, and a mix of beads & glitter, and some ribbon.
I am planning to link this album to Wen's ( click >) SIMPLY NEUTRALS TUESDAY !!!
She is currently hosting a wonderful weekly Linky party posting photo's showcasing neutral colors.
Once opened, There is a lace pocket on the left (lace is from Etsy > TreasorsdeLuxe laces; etc)
A place in the center for photo's (green gingham fabric, and I stamped a rose on some thin cotton) I also included a few 'tags' (for photos or journaling.)
On the right there is a Battenberg pocket to hold a small note pad, and on the far right is a pocket made from a cross-stitch doily. Inside is a teeny (3"X3") mini photo album made with canvas.
The mini is pinned together with a Tim Holtz 'I don't know whatcha call it do-dad pin! : ) The clock is stenciled with Gesso. I used some vintage buttons on the heart and added a few beads as well. Oh, and the wedding photo is my grandparents!
The album has a simple button and loop closer. I included a close photo so you could see.
Well, Autumn is truly here in Colorado Springs, CO : J
We usually experience warm days and chilly nights! And such is the case since I've returned.
My daughter and grandchildren will be leaving soon to make the trek back to their home in Montana.
I miss them already! : /
