Here's that second sneak peek!

     I've been promising you guys a second sneak peek at the mini album I've been working on for my daughter.  I really got a lot of work done on it the last couple of days so I have that next little teaser to share with you.  In fact, I've made you wait so long, I've given you TWO peeks!
     Before I share them I want to thank all of you who left me such sweet comments on my new "job" over at A Day For Daisies.  I really appreciate your words of encouragement. :-)
     So.......without further ado, here are my two little peeks.

     The flower was made with the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die and I painted it with some beautiful Creative Inspirations paint that I won a while back.  It's so shimmery and pretty.  The butterfly is part of the mat piece.  I needed a little extra room to get the "leg" in, so I cut around the butterfly so I could slip the "leg" under it's wings.  I didn't cut it all the way so it's still connected by its body.  I really like the 3D effect!

     This page really challenged me because I had to learn how to make white look white ON white.  LOL  It's one of my favorites in the whole book!  I found the pretty trim at Hobby Lobby.  The little butterfly was painted with some Liquid Pearls I picked up at my local scrap store.  She's going out of business BOO HOO!  I didn't go there often because she's about 30-45 minutes away, but she carried a lot of stuff none of the retail stores or my other LSS carried (like this beautiful Pink Paislee paper) so when I did make the trip I'd load up.  Now I'll have to get in online.  :-(
     So there are your two sneaky peeks.  :-)  I made all my journal tags last night, but haven't written in them.  I'm not sure if I will before I take pictures and video.  Still some last little bits to add and I haven't done the cover yet.  Unusual for me since that's usually the first thing I make.  Fingers crossed I should have it finished in two or three days and be able to share the hole thing with you.  :-)
     Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!
     Hugs!
