My Girl Mini Album-Die Cut Challenge-Flower

Hi ladies and thank you for stopping by today and checking out what I've created for our die cut challenge over at Stuck On U sketches..  Our die cut theme for this Friday was FLOWER..meaning, to use any die cut flower.. I decided to use three different die cut machines for this project, my Cricut Imagine and my Cricut Expression, plus my little green monster, the cuttlebug..
Here is my project:

this is a 4"x6" mini that has chipboard only on the front and back covers..the rest is just white cardstock that I then decorated with Bo Bunny paper and all the flowers are hand made, except for one.. Can you pick out the Prima?..LOL
Here are some photos of the inside of the mini album:

Hand made daisy, cut out of white cardstock and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick disterss ink and all of the leaves in this album I cut using the "A Childs Year" cartridge.
the cabbage rose (left)  and the big flower(right) are both cut using my cuttlebug and the Tim Holtz Sizzix die Tattered Florals..  the tiny flowers are a Fiskars punch which I inked and layered..

This flower I also cut using the Tattered Florals die, white cardstock and worn lipstick ink.. same with the small buds.

Another Daisy, I cut using my Cricut E and Graphically Speaking cartridge.. added a decorative button to the center..

Cabbage rose (luv these).. I cut it with white cardstock and my tattered Floral die, glimmer misted it with pink bubble gum and then inked the edges..
this is the two pager.. lots of pockets on the left and then just photo mats on the right..
Here is another rose I created with the sizzix tattered floral die.. and you dont' have to cut all of the flowers on the die, you can just cut smaller pieces of cardstock, stack them onto the one cut and then run it through your cuttlebug/bigshot..

close up of the rose..

large photo  mat tags.. and Here is the prima..LOL  can you spot the difference?  I have to admit that my flowers actually look a lot better than the prima..but dont tell anyone I said so..LOL

and finally, the last page...My mini is so big and bulky, I had to leave the flowers off of this last page or it would not have shut..LOL  I did a tri-fold photo mat on the left and then one big pull out tag and pocket on the right...
