I had a ton of fun with this LO! I used a piece of 12x12 cardboard for the background- I painted it and roughed it up a bit. I love the look of this, it's girly with a rugged edge, pretty much like me. The journaling says it all, "girly girl with a twist of tomboy!"

I created this mini album to teach at my LSS next month. I had lots of fun with this, too- I made my own watercolors using acrylic paint and water, spritzed lots of glimmer mist and even added a dab of stickles here and there!
