Picture Perfect Photo Album!




I made this for a girl that was diagnosed with a form of cancer. She likes owls, crafts and photography so I bought one of those photo albums from the dollar store and decorated it up a bit. Dustin Pike was nice enough to send anyone that was making her something a few owl freebies that he created...so cute!! Figured she could use the album to put some of her fav pictures in and I also stamped several different owl images and put them inside for her to color.

I misted the background paper with a few different shimmerz spritz. Colored the image with Prismas and OMS. Added a little glossy accents to the camera lens and flash although you can't really see it in the picture. I customized the K&Co. tags with my JustRite stamp kit. Made the flower following a tutorial here. Embossed the back page and cut then embossed the stamp with my Cuttlebug.
