Elegant Eclectic Butterfly Mini Albums

I recently made a couple of minis, out of some of the collections that recently came out that had butterflies and similar color pallets!  I wanted to share a few of the pictures, first of the super mini (6x6) which I sent to my swap partner Loretta! I want to thank Loretta for her pictures, mine weren't as good as hers and so she agreed to share hers! I'll post the other mini separately, when I get a chance!  There are also video's available on my You Tube channel if you'd like to see those.

I really love this shot Loretta took of the
decorations I put and made for this mini.

Prima flowers, some lace, crystal lacquer on the letters,
flowers on the rings and a little bling that is what this
book is made of, LOL!

The Butterfly is also from the Pink Paisley Butterfly Garden
Collection and the white pearl flower is from Zva Creations.

I pierced holes and ran and tied lace to use as tag holders.
The white lace was tied here and the blue on the other side.

There are three tags slipped into the lace on the left hand page!

Prima and Zva flowers, and ephemera are used on these
pages that I wanted to leave open for larger pictures.

The little tags shown here out of their pocket, go into the
bird nest ephemera which I pop-dotted up for dimension.

The pocket is created from a Prima journaling tag from
their Botanical Collection. I proped up using folded cardstock.

This mini in a mini is held together with a pink crystal
brad which is inserted from the back allowing the
legs to be hidden under the flowers.
 I hope you like the book!  Here is a list of the products I used:
