Flirty Purse Mini Album

For the last couple of days I had an urge to use chocolate brown and pink colours in my creations. I am not mad, this happens often in my head and it is a good sign of inspiration :-) The initial idea when I got crafting yesterday was to make a (yet another) square, girly card using this colour combo but in a strange twist my card developed into a mini album for my baby daughter - I am planning to use this little Flirty Purse to keep photos of her first spring in this world. She is growing so quickly!
I managed to finish most of the mini album yesterday afternoon, while she was sleeping. She had had a bad morning (I wonder if she will start teething soon?) so she slept for 5 hours in the afternoon, very unusual for her!!! Needless to say I made the most of that time crafting :-)
I take photos of my baby daughter nearly every day, and the ones I will take in the coming weeks, while going for walks in the park and enjoying the first signs of spring, will go into this album. I had fun making this little purse, I hope you like it too.
I used Marie Stone's pink and brown digital paper, as well as Bearly Mine Designs'; the pink brads, the brown flowers, the twine and the spotty ribbon are from my stash; the image coloured with Letraset Promarkers and paper pieced with the BMD paper.
