Pink Mini's for a Cure Fundrasier

Most of you may know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is a cause very close to my heart as both my grandmother, mother, and several other close family friends have died of this disease. I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in a "mini album" challenge that Laura at Following the Paper Trail is hosting. Myself and 20+ other extremely talented women created "Pink Mini Albums for a Cure". Laura is hosting a silent auction on her blog form Oct. 31st until Nov. 7th. All proceeds raised will go to the Susan G. Komen for a Cure Foundation. Check it out!

The front cover says "Sweet Things".  That was my theme and most of the elements used in the album are "sweet things". (Click on any photo to see it in a larger format.)

This is a close-up of the three charms that I attached to the metal ring, that is holding the mini together.  I have also attached a ton of ribbons and fibers to conceal the ring. 

Pages One and Two

Another view with the tags removed.

Pages Three and Four

This is a close-up of flower and pink ribbon detail on page three.

Pages Five and Six

Pages Seven and Eight~ There is an additional small "cupcake" charm that is attached to this page.

This is a close-up of the "mini" round album that is tucked into page eight. I embossed the three inside pages with a glittery embossing powder.

Pages Nine and Ten

Pages Eleven and Twelve


This is a close-up of the tags from page eleven. Two of the tags are clear acetate with stamped images on them. There is a small flap on page twelve that has room to journal on. 

Pages Thirteen and Fourteen

Here is a close-up of the tags from page thirteen. The white tag says "It's a sweet thing" in the bottom right hand corner.
