Hello, my lovelies!  
I am feeling a smidge girly today after my
most recent Pinque Peacock project!  
Once upon a time, a girl had an awesome
lunch with her previously aforementioned AWESOMESAUCE
mother-in-law. That girl, just “happened” to sneak a few Panera
coffee sleeves in her purse…(Hey…A girl has to craft!!!)  
Enter today’s project…a coffee sleeve album.  


This was challenging for me in many respects. 
First, I don’t **ducks and cringes and runs away** scrapbook.
I don’t... I’m sorry... I love scrapbooks, but me, myself
and I... I just don’t do it. All my photos are digital,
and I prefer them that way. I also don’t like pastels. 
Please see anyone of my previous 100 posts about
how pastels and I do not share a likeness for each
other. To top it off, I don’t do mini’s often, and
have never done an altered mini. There, I said
 it all out loud. Are you like me? Then prepare to
be amazed, my friends! I took these plain coffee
sleeves, and created this fantastically awesome
girly album. I used a combo of adhesive fabric
and pink floral papers from my stash. I used an
accordion binding technique to bind the sleeves,
and used iridescent bead trim and chiffon
flowers to cover the binding.  On the front, 
 

I used a chiffon flower with a Pinque Peacock Pinque Floral Fabric Covered Button
   for the center,and a beautiful marble glass stickpin as an accent on the closure bow.
 
 

On each page, I use a coordinating stickpin as an accent and
to hold memorabilia or photos. As I said, I don’t do
albums, but I love this one!... Do you?  Would you love
it to add to your collection? I would love for you to have it!

Oh Lisa you created such a pretty album. I have to say I do have days where I do not want to scrapbook. I must agree its not often you will see a mini album from me. I love everything about it. TFS AJ-
