'Rondelle' Mini Album

Hi everyone! Wanted to show you a few pages  of a mini album I'm working on.  It's for a close friend of mine.  We don't  'do'  birthday presents so I'm giving this to her instead of a card.  She is the most amazing person.  She had polio as a child and now has to wear a caliper but she doesn't let that slow her down.  She is always busy  helping others (she bakes cakes for me) and never thinking of herself.  I love her to bits.  

The base album is made from cardstock along the lines of   Kathy Orta's  envelope album but with a couple of my own ideas incorporated into it.

The papers I've used are mostly from the Prima Rondelle Collection  (love these papers, they are really beautiful)  but the black spotted one is from Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe and the orange spot is from their Nutcracker Suite  papers. I needed a couple of contrasts and felt these fitted in really well. All papers are distressed with Kaisercraft Bark Stamp Pad.
The small journalling tags I'm using are from various sources.  Some are Kaisercraft, some are free printables from the net and some are from my stash.

The charms are ones I put together myself.

It's not quite finished, I'm having problems working out how to decorate the front and what embellishments to use  inside.  Doesn't help when you're not feeling well but I'm sure it will all come together eventually.  I'll show the rest when it's all finished.

Thanks for visiting. Take care and God Bless.

  1. Margy, your memory album is stunning, I really like your choices of papers, and the punch you used, so pretty!! Your charm strands are gorgeous and really do compliment the album - I love doing this when I can too.
    Hope you're feeling better real soon, so you can get inspired in a wonderful way to complete your album cover. Do show it when you have finished... xxx

  2. Oh wow ... WOW...Margy this is just gorgeous....So very inspiring!! Would you believe I am just about to create with these papers. I've been hoarding them way too long... I love your charms and all your decorative edges. Thanks for sharing...~Kimi~
