The Years Fly By…

Hello, my friends!

A fun little project to share with you today, inspired by my beautiful mother…and some really fun new products I was able to play with this week!

A fabulous album from Maya Road—in the shape of a purse—complete with handle & everything!

I covered it with some scrumptious  aqua foil from Vintage Street Market’s “Dimestore Vogue” Paper Sheets & Tags kit…

I decided to fill it with pictures of my mother, Karen…such lovely portraits taken of her all throughout her life, it was easy as pie to put this together!

As I was working on it, I thought of how quickly the years pass by…turning adorable, chubby little girls into beautiful, capable young women…

Scrapbooks like this don’t have to take a long time to put together…this one literally took me two days—start to finish!  When you’ve got the good stuff to work with, it’s easy peasy, my friends!

And Mom—thanks for always inspiring me…every single day…I love you.

See you soon with something new…
