Pretty in Pink shaped mini album

I've made this album for a Craftbubble challenge in the mini books group to make a shaped mini album.
Used a Woodware album I'd had for ages..........but a bit disappointed when I opened it as not only was it very thick.......but also spined..........when I'd expected loose pages.This meant I couldn't use all the embellishments I wanted as it would have ended up too thick to anywhere near close.
On the plus side it means I've used up a lot of stickers I've got....and never lots of pink scraps.
The inspiration for the theme came from making scrap canvas wall hangings of the kids in blue and green...and only being able to find photos of DD2 when little wearing thought a 'pretty in pink' album of her would be cute....she wouldn't agree....and wouldn't be seen dead wearing pink these better not let her see it.

Woa - slow down jacky, I can't keep up with all your fabulous creations!! I'm a bit jealous that you can scrapbook & cardmake lol I couldn't order the spring Tilda collection (cause they're already shipped i think) but have ordered the summer one - it's exciting isn't it?!! Thanks my love & have a great weekend xxx

WOW...Such a project!
I would love to have the time and dedication to do one of these for my girls. You have put a lot of time and hard work into it!
It looks fabulous! I think I saw a heart shaped one which I liked the look of in a magazine. perhaps I will add it to my never ending list!

Hi Jackie - Fabulous layouts and cards. Great use of the colours on the CC card and gorgeously coloured Tilda. I love your spotty and stripey papers.
