Be all that you DREAM to be

Simply Stunning! After my successful first acrylic album, I immediately had to get to work on #2. Again, I added shaped chipboard panels between the acrylic to give it more pages and more visual interest. I was inspired by some MME paper & embellishments that I had, but I only had 2 sheets of the MME paper. What's a girl to do?!? So I dove into my paper stash and found 2 patterns of Classic K & Co. plus one sheet of Basic Grey that coordinated and complemented the sparkly, pretty MME papers. Add two colors of Bazzill cardstock and VIOLA! All the makings of a pretty, shabby-chic-type album. And as much as I will hate to see this album go {WAAAHHH!!!} I listed it for auction on eBay. You can find my current listings by clicking on the link on the right side of this blog page. After all was said and done, I had some paper scraps left over so I'm using them to make an altered board book - even the scraps were just too darn pretty to throw out! Look for the photos of the board book in the next few days. :)
