Back to School Mini Album

Hi crafty friends! I'm so excited to tell you about a digital store that has opened! Daydream Designs owned by the talented and sweet Diane Noble is now open! I am so blessed to be a part of her Design Team!
Her store sells the cutest digital images, along with, digital papers and sentiments! She has many images being released throughout the month, so stop by occasionally and check out what's new! 

Here is my first project as part of the Dream Team:
I knew I had to make a cute little mini album when I saw Diane's School Days KD Kit. I teamed up her cute kit with some vintage papers from Graphic 45's ABC Primer. I used chalkboard ATC's to cover the tabs and used chalk ink for the numbers.  I've added lots of fibers and some cute charms to the rings. There are many pockets and tags throughout the album that I cut using my cricut. These cute little tags and folders will be used to hold lots of pictures of our new school year!

I used Tim Holtz caramel alcohol ink to make the ink spots and a ring fastener to open the folder.

Inside the folder is another album to hold more pictures.

Two mats to frame some pictures.

A cute little picture book and pocket.

The image on the tag is from the Dream Team Scripture Color Mats 1 set. 

These pages are full of Daydream Designs cute little images and digital papers! 

Picture of mini album before I altered it! :)

I hope you enjoyed my album and will stop by and check out Diane's new store Daydream Designs!
