Beautiful Brave Girl

My friend Jamie, who designs for GCD Studios, put up a challenge over at Two Peas in a Bucket.  First of all, I need to tell you what a fabulous artist Jamie is!  Please visit her site and leave her some great comments.  You will love her artwork!

This is the picture that Jamie left for inspiration:
I created a mini album with Melody Ross Homespun Chic papers, tags, and chipboard phrases.  I made a flower for the cover.  For directions to make this flower, go here to GCD Studios.  I took the flower just a step further by coating it with clear rock candy Distress Crackle Paint.  It gave the flower a little sheen and firmness.  I used bulk ribbon, prima flowers, and some pink gems.  All of the edges are distressed with white pigment ink.

I'll share the inside pages with you as well:

I left this book blank because I have a couple ideas for it.  Not sure if I'll keep it or use it for a gift.  Melody Ross has created such beautiful papers and accessories.  It was truly a pleasure to work on this!!

This is simply beautiful. I love everything about it. I am so into pink lately and just want everything to be soft and pretty like that.
Great job sweetie!

I agree, this is the best. It is so beautiful! I love this mini! I all the dainty girlie details! So pretty!
I've had a horrible week and I've missed visiting you! Hopefully things are getting back on track!
