Springtime Joy

It's the 5th Sunday of this month which means "Create something with 5" HERE at Anything But A Card.... 5 techniques, 5 elements, etc. My design team inspiration today is a triangle box that holds a mini album with FIVE pages of photos from my garden. It's springtime here and that's one of my most favorite seasons of the year. Nature is green and bursting with color and I adore playing in the dirt. There is something very theraputic about it.

I was inspired to make this through Carlene (PinkScrapper99) on YouTube HERE. Thanks Carlene ! This looks very complicated but is quite simple and so much fun .... 

I used Tattered Florals Diecut to cut my chipboard pages for the mini album.  I kept the 3D embellishments to a minimum as to not become too bulky. 
The rest of the pages are filled with pictures of all the yummy goodness growing in my garden. 
 The paperline I used is K & Co. Tim Coffey as well as many of their matching embellishments. For the closure I used twine for the handle and then tied in a bow... It looks like a little garden purse...

I hope you will create with us at ABAC in celebration of this 5th Sunday for the month. Be sure to link up your project as well. 

Happy Creating xoxo Toni
