Worth A Million Bucks

This week over at Paper Vineyard's design team, I was challenged to make something "lush" using the new My Mind's Eye products that arrived in the store last week, so I went GOLD BABY!!!  The gold Starfoam stickers were the perfect touch to make what would have otherwise been a pretty, but basic card, and make it elegant.  And the new Tim Holtz Type Charms are out of this world!!!  I was really pleased with this one that took me all of ten minutes to complete (gotta love those stickers) but looks like it's worth a million bucks!  Now I have to add..... this ended up being what it is because the piece of My Mind's Eye paper that I was using for the design team design ended up taking on a life of it's own so I ended up having to use remnants to make today's project.  But it was worth it.... check it out!  My VERY FIRST ultra-mini album!!!  This thing is like 3" x 3"!  I LOVE how it turned out.  Now you need to see it in person to really see how UNREAL that paper looks bound to the cover.  It feels like fabric!  This mini book is now being developed for April's Gypsy class at Paper Vineyard... I can't wait!  One more thing to add.... this is about to get REALLY pic heavy and all the pics below were taken with my new LG Ally phone (actually, they look pretty great for being phone pics).

Ok, and here's a close up of that binding.  Hopefully you can see just how tightly and PERFECTLY that paper wrapped around the chipboard... almost like fabric.  That My Mind's Eye paper ROCKS!

Ok folks!  That does it for me today.  Be sure to head over to Paper Vineyard's blog and check out what the rest of the design team has to offer.... it really is Worth A Million Bucks!

What a wonderful mini!!!

I had to come and thank you for stopping to take the time to comment, leaving me such kind words! You didn't have to do that, and I am so appreciative. I want you to know you warmed my heart and made me feel so much better. It's wonderful people like yourself that really reach out and touch that makes this such a wonderful world -- and I'm so blessed to be in it with all of you!

Thank you, my friend!
