Scrapbooking "Love Is Timeless" Mini Album (featuring BFS)


Hi Everyone! --- HAPPY Monday!! 
Are you ready for a creative fun week?!??! 

I'm excited!! I have a beautiful flowery mini album project titled "Love is Timeless" and I love how it turned out! I created it using an acrylic flower album that is perfect to show off both sides of the Blue Fern Garden prints.. absolutely stunning! And then I grabbed some of the amazing BFS chipboard (timepieces and stems/leaves/flowers) inked and stamped and played! Adding detailed chipboard pieces to my projects really enhances the overall beauty of the mini. Next, I have the perfect pictures in mind to fill this album up with and the fun journaling to go with it!! 

Click here to visit the Blue Fern Studio's.com and the BFS blog! I'm thrilled to be doing some video's for them and so .. here we go! Here's this months project! I hope you enjoy!
