Etsy Inspired Challenge #31

I am so thankful the weekend is here! My little one has been sick and cranky all week but is now on the mend. So, I finally had some time and energy to work on my EtsyInspired project last night. This week's featured shop is Make Mine Mud which is filled with beautiful pottery pieces. I absolutely love her leaves...
Aren't they gorgeous! I just might have to get some...especially since Melissa is generously giving anyone who mentions the EtsyInspired challenge a free pendant with purchase!

So for my project, I used some beautiful leaf paper I had left over from a project I did 2 years ago. I knew I would want to use it again! :) And I covered some of the old Unity wood tags (that used to come with the wood slide kits) to create a little mini album. Here is a picture of the front cover...
The beautiful flower image and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink's Friends 'til the End set. I thought this mini album would be a great thing to give a loved one around Thanksgiving time filled with wonderful pictures and journaling about the people and things you are grateful for. I wanted to show you the back of the album too, just so you can really see the lovely leaf paper in it's entirety.
For the inside, I kept the pages very natural and simple. I just stamped the flower image once or twice in various places around the tags, leaving room for pictures and writing.



Whew! I know that was a lot...I guess I have missed posting and chatting this week! :) Anyway, be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team:
Have fun with your Etsy Inspiration this week! Click HERE if you have never participated in an EtsyInspired challenge before. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend! I know I am going to enjoy spending time with my family who I am so very grateful for!
