INSPIRED!

So, I was looking for SOMETHING to give to my sister for her bridal shower coming up this weekend, and you know how it is when you just can't seem to find the perfect thing... especially for the girl who has everything. Well, what about a mini album so she can compile her shower photos? BRILLIANT if I do say so myself! And she DOES love to create... it's the artist in us both. Yep, mini album it is! So a few days ago I was stalking the sites (as I sometimes do) and ran across this little gem at The Greeting Farm:

I don't know who created this masterpiece, but the postmarks and the monochromatic "aged" look was PERFECT for my sister... and I happen to have the PERFECT set of stamps from 7 Gypsies that featured Italian images and postmarks! YAY! Knowing that Italian is right up her alley, I was all over it!!! I bound 4 pages and matted the pages with complimentary papers from Graphic 45 and 7 Gypsies (you KNOW how I love them) and left it at that. I might throw in some embellies for her, but I know from personal experience, putting the album together is all the fun!

So for my interpretation of the AMAZING project above, I used The Greeting Farm's Cheeky Glamour, Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Odds and Ends and 7 Gypsies Venice clear stamps to make this little project and I love it... let's hope my sister does too!!! :)

Copics I used: E08, E18, E42, E39, E50, E51 and W3 <--- No really... that was it!!!

***UPDATE: I just got an email from The Greeting Farm. To see more AMAZING projects from this artist, check out http://rimna.blogspot.com/.
