Craft Barn Mini Album - Page 3

Good afternoon ! I hope that I am finding you all well and happy, happy, happy !

As promised, I am back with page 3 of my mini album for the Craft Barn challenge (click on the piccie in my sidebar to take you to the Craft Barn's blog for more info).

I am really struggling to take nice photos and I have no idea why as I've tried everything I can think of an even looked for hints and tips online. Perhaps its my cheap "press and go" camera but whatever it is, I find it very frustrating.

Actually, now the photo is on my blog, it doesn't look too bad I don't think.

Again, I painted round the edges of my card with picket fence distress ink and inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink.

The DP's are Melissa Frances "Rhonda" Scrapbooking Collection. I have distressed the edges with my T!m tool ! and run around the edges with a gold leaf pen. I've also added a flourish to the corners.

The photographs are of Mollie and Izzy when they were only a couple of months old. The top photograph is Mollie. Again I distressed the edges of the card and ran around the edge with a gold leaf pen and also added some gold stickles.

The "Treasure" stamp is from the scrapbooking ones I bought and unfortunately I have no idea who makes them.

I made the tag and stamps the definition on it. This stamp was also in the scrapbooking stamps I bought. The ribbon was in the Melissa Frances scrapbooking collection.

The pearls are from my stash and I made the swirls with the aid of a Bazzill template I bought from Quixotic Paperie.

I only wish you could see it in real life as these papers are so soft and pretty and that gold just lifts it a little and gives it a subtle sparkle. I do hope you like it !

I shall be back tomorrow with my card for Simon Says Challenge and then hope to show you page 4 on Thursday - its yet to be made !

Thank you so much for your visit and for your lovely, kind comments.
