The Mini Album Monday project I am sharing with you today was created from a tutorial from The Gentleman Crafter. He made this Flip Top Mini Mini and I fell in love with it and had to try my hand at it. This project was a great way for me to use the 6x6 packs of paper that I found in the Michael's bins. I have accumulated quite a nice supply and challenged myself to use the paper line and nothing else. Fortunately for me I also had the greeting cards to match one of the Paula Dean paper lines.
So without further ado, here it is...

Isn't it Sweet! Just like my dear friend to whom I am dedicating this album! Now, I don't condone the statements made by Paula in her recent press, nor do I agree with it. Proudly being a Woman of Color, I am disgusted in the comments that were made, however, I made this project before the news of this incident had come to light. I still think the paper is beautiful and I will most likely add my final embellishments to this mini album and put it up for sale in my Etsy shop, Luv Unlimited. 100% of the proceed will go to the fight against cancer in memory one of my dearest friends who just lost her fight to cancer last week and loved Paula. This is my way of honoring her memory. Turning Tragedy into Triumph.
Okay before I start crying I am going to sign off. My friend and I were very close. She and I saw a lot of laughter and tears together and was a true Prayer Warrior, Woman of God, Beloved Mother, and a True Friend. I miss her dearly.
Ok guys, thank you all so much for stopping by and sharing your time with me and I will see you all in the next one.
