Our Girl Mini Album


I am so excited to share with all of you the “Our Girl” Mini Album!  I had so much fun taking pictures of Andrea’s daughter Julia, when I decided to create this album. Julia and I when outside and I just said to her to be herself and have fun!  Wow what a girl and it sure does show in the photos that she was having a great time in her photo shoot!  I had a few of the pages in my head but once I had taken Julia’s photos, the rest just happened once I layed out all of the photographs.  Andrea saw a few of the photos but did not see the entire ablum until it was complete.  Both Andrea and Julia just loved it the finished album!

I used the “This and That – Graceful” collection from Echo Park to create the page backgrounds and some of the embellishments. I also used some chipboard elements, pearl flourishes as well as some of Prima’s beautiful flowers to complete this extremely girly mini ablum!  All of these fun embellishments just pulled the entire album together to complete this adorable mini album that holds a very special moment in time!
