Paradise Found Mini Album

Last year, my husband and I took a cruise to the Eastern Caribbean - compliments of Close To My Heart! It's one of the many fabulous perks of being a consultant for a company that truly rewards your hard work!

 I had some left-over Footloose DE's and partial packs of the Sparkle Flourishes left over, so I used those to create a memory box with a mini album inside!


Okay - let me explain.......the top of the box is a little bright and gaudy, but it reminded me of San Diego and even Tijuana - such a magical place where these bright colors abound and you never know when you might find a pink flamingo in someones front yard! LOL!


So...on to the project.....on the front of the box, the flap, I added one of the large DE scallop pieces, embellished with a few pearls.

I used some of the coordinating Footloose papers for the outside of the box.

Open the box and you will see that I have decorated the lid, and inside the box is a photo with a ribbon tab - pull the tab and....

...out comes the mini album! All 4x6 photos attached to an accordion folded cardstock base that is anchored to the inside of the box.

Here is the inside of the box with the mini album extended.

I even added photos to the back side of the cardstock!


There are a total of 9 photos. I journaled directly on the photos in Photoshop so I wouldn't have to create a separate journaling piece and added some DE's and sparkles to the photos.

Here's the FUN part....this is my July workshop! Which means that I will show you how easy it is to create one of these as a keepsake for your recent cruise or beach vacation. This would make a great family treasure, but also a great treasure for each of your kids to remember their get-a-way!

Since I was working with leftovers, I have 7 kits that include partial Footloose DE's and partial Sparkle Flourishes plus everything you need to create my version of the box. After those kits are gone, I will include full sets of the Footloose DE's and Flourishes.
