A Little Mini

Hello all, and Happy Friday!
That means it's the last day to enter for a chance to be on the design team for Pumpkin Spice ;)
I made the front and back cover for a mini album I'm creating. 
The cover for the album is from Teresa Collins. It was made for the Bind It All, but I decided on ribbon instead. 
The papers I used are from my two Favorite paper lines; Crate Paper's "Restoration Collection" and Echo Park's "For the Record." They worked well together too.  
 Now for some of the How-To's. 
I traced the covers onto the papers and cut them out by hand. I glued the papers to the covers with Mod Podge and sanded the edges, then sponged ink on the edges.
The crochet flowers were white and dyed with re-inkers and water. It's great when you can't find just the right color to be able to dye what you have.
 All of the stamps I used are of course Unity ;)
 I used a lot of Nestabilites for the sentiments and frames for pictures.
These two pages are ready for pictures. There is room under the top left corner of the sentiment panel for a picture to slide in.   
 I can't wait to slide some pics in here. I'm going to add pages as I go along.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great weekend :)
