croppity crop crop

So, Friday night and all day Saturday, a couple of girlfriends and I headed up to my LSS for some major cropping!
I completed this mini on sat. I love working with clear, acrylic albums. To me, it's a challenge to make each page work off each other...creating a perfect layering affect of awesome patterns and colors.
Remember that cardboard cloud I altered for this month's challenge? It fit perfectly on my cover.
The cloud and the album title "my loves" were on the first clear page. Here is what is underneath.
Love those Tim Holtz's mini pins! So fun!
Some paper flowers and Prima leaves make cute handmade embellishments.
I am a little banner crazy right now! lol
'the staring contest' photo is my fave!!

and I LOOOOVE those trinket pins!!
The page on the right is from another example I had shown for this month's challenge.
Here is a breakdown of the products used.
