My Little Shoebox / Want2Scrap = Awesome!!

We’ve teamed up with Want 2 Scrap to bring you some inspiration all this week with the collaboration of My Little Shoebox collections and products from Want 2 Scrap.

I’m so excited to share this awesome "Lattice" mini album from Want2Scrap with you! Together with this album I also received such a fabulous box of goodies from Want2Scrap and combined with the new "Secret Garden" collection from My Little Shoebox I created this mini about all the things I love. 

Before I started adhering my papers to the cover of the album I misted it with glimmer mist from Tattered Angels and used my white ink pad from ColorBox for the edges. I then cut 3 strips of paper, covered them in Modge Podge (so they're a bit stronger), layered them and adhered them to the cover. Then embellished the rest of the cover.

Except for the album itself, both the paper and wooden doily came from Want2Scrap, as well as the paper clip in the top left corner, the journaling tag, the yellow flower, the leaves and the two white ribbons. 

And here are all the pages:

What I love are: Little shops and French table ware: 

Travels and my crazy, funny family:

My doggie and married life (the bling border is from Want2Scrap = part of the "Classy Corners - Grace"):

Happy mail and coffee latte (the laser cut swirl is from Want2Scrap):

Fall and love notes from hubby and/or kids (the laser cut flower is from Want2Scrap):

Butterflies and Bags, Purses, Boots, Scarves (the laser cut swirl and the bling butterfly are from Want2Scrap):

My scrap corner in our living room and these stairs at the beach: 

My doggie's hair on top of her head when she really needs a trim, BOOKS (lots of them) and detective films (the bling corner, the white flowers and the white ribbon are from Want2Scrap): 

and definitely lots more, but for now this is the end of my "LOVE" mini (the bling butterfly is from Want2Scrap):

What I love most about this Want2Scrap album is the front of course, with the lattice pattern! It's so unique! But what I also love A LOT are all the different pages; different shapes and different texture that come with this album.
