New Found Love...Mini Albums (**V**) (warning: lots of photos)



Today is my turn to choose the theme for this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge & I chose "Vintage/Steampunk" & I had in my head I wanted to make something with an Alice in Wonderland feel.  I had a wonderfully illustrated book when I was little & it was my fav.  I saw THIS printable album online & fell in love with it.  It took me ages to make but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I added a few other images I bought on Etsy & added some ribbons, charms, ink & liquid embossing.  I would love to make for mini albums but I really don't have much free time at the moment :o( (I did make a toilet paper roll album for a swap which I will blog at a later date but I don't like it as much as this one).  I haven't shown all the photos (but there are still lots lol), I hope you get the idea :o)
