Oh I do Like to be beside the Seaside

It seems a little funny to share a summer project with you, but of course it is Summer in Australia where Manor House Creations are based.

Mini albums are a great way to store memories without being overwhelming.  I created a mini book from scratch just using some 12x12 and the gorgeous Summer at the Seaside collection from Scrapcake.

I do like a little texture on my pages, so I teamed up the lovely Tropics by the Pool flowers with some leaves and shells.  I inked the background over a compass mask. Finally, I topped it all off with lots of glitter.

To keep the album simple, I created all the pages as 8x6 folding over the remaining 4" of cardstock to make pockets and flaps.

The flaps add a fun twist to the book.  I adorned this page with the tiny bathing costumes on a washing line (well who can resist)?
All the pages are decorated simply with the flowers doing all the work.

I added some white paste (snow writer) and glitter for extra sparkle to these gorgeous Tropics flowers (Whitsunday).

So the next time you have an occasion to scrap, why not try making a mini-album of your own?

Thanks for stopping by.
