My Miracle Angel and a Envelope Mini Album

Hi Everyone, Karen here with two November Projects to share with you today.  The first is a layout and the second is a envelope mini album.

My Miracle Angel

My 1st project is a layout of my Grandson Zach.  He is a very special little guy, and Zach this one's for you!

Materials Used:
Bo Bunny Et Cetra Paper Collection
Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers Die Cut
Tim Holtz Tattered Clock Face Die Cut
Tim Holtz Page Tab Die Cut
Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo

To alter the chipboard I first gessoed and then applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Antique Linen and Vintage Photo

                                                                  Clock Face Without Centre & Hands (6") IDS0017

Here's my 2nd project for November to share with you.  It's an envelope mini album using Graphic 45's Olde Curisoity Shoppe Collection with some of the beautiful Imaginarium Designs Corner Pieces.  I'm sorry for the quality of the photos, the lighting has been really bad here and it does not do the chipboard justice.  In real life the pieces look old and match the patina feel of the G45 metal flowers on the cover of the mini album.  So here we go, I have some pages to share with you and the rest are posted on my blog for you to view.  Hope you enjoy.

First is a couple photos of the cover
