The past two weeks I have been making the All Occasions mini album designed by Kathy Orta King of Paper Phenomenon. It is an eight page mini album with numerous areas to add photos and journaling. I used a 12 X 12 DCWV Le Tres Chic stack throughout. Because the paper would possibly crack at the spine edges, I decided to first wrap the album with black cardstock followed by piecing the DCWV paper to the front cover, spine and back cover. I used a Tim Holtz Ideology Curio Knob, Ball Chain and Long Fastener as the closure. I hand sewed a string of pearls from my stash to narrow black ribbon, then glued that to some Martha Stewart lace. This was used to enhance the simple beauty of the cover.
I believe a person should live their life to the fullest in the Lord, not merely exist.
The things I love to do are studying the Bible, travelling, photography, scrapbooking, gardening and reading. Since retiring in January 2007 I now have time to enjoy all of these things.
