Spring Friendship Mini Album- DT for YMH

This mini seemed to take forever to get done but I just can't wait to share it with you all.. It was amazingly fun to create and I got to use some of my very favorite supplies, one being Prima papers and flowers..Oh My!! and let me tell you all, I must be one of the luckiest people to be able to work with Prima's and I get mine from Your Memories Here.. As you all know, I live in Finland so finding Prima supplies here is rare to none, and you all should know by now, that I hold a special place in my heart for suppliers that ship international and Kristina from YMH does..  I'm always eye balling her stuff (<---that sounded weird..LOL)  to see what I can get and put together and so, that's where this mini album comes in...

I found some pink business sized envelopes in my stash, some sheets of chipboard, my butterfly punch, stamps, loads of Prima goodies and went to town..  I was in my creative zone for three days and finally, here is what I ended up with:

This cute & puffy mini measures 6.5" long and 4.5" wide.. I cut my own tags out of chipboard and attached them in between the envelope pockets.. and all of the papers I used on this mini came in the Sparkling Spring Collection by Prima..I am a sucker for these 6x6 paper pads cause they are so versatile and go a long way.. I mean seriously, I made a few cards last week with it and now, I have a mini album all done, plus I have loads of paper left for more projects.. 

here are a few close ups:

see what I mean about being puffy?..LOL  
I took a Tim Holtz clip and tied some white ribbon to it, to help keep it closed..LOL

The inside.. Had a hard time trying to get good photos of all the pages cause
they didn't wanna cooperate..LOL

The first page.. made two pockets with the bit of envelope I cut off the one end and the other
side I used Ranger distress ink and one of my Prima Masks for the photo mat, plus all the pretty Prima flowers.. I used several different flower collections, one being the Sunrise yellow Mini roses..
My big tag, same thing with ink and masking.. plus, I added some liquid pearl drops all over the place and Love the stamps I used.  The stamps are from Stephanie over at Whimsical Designs..

I also used some of the bigger Prima Flowers., the yellow Lilliput roses are amazing..
I also used Prima's floret collection-Camille, and these small roses are all made out of Mulberry paper..

I almost forgot, I had some transparency sheets and I cut one almost the same size as the photo mat, I folded one end of it and tucked it behind the side of the photo mat, stamped a big butterfly image on it and then added some punched butterflies plus a little blue Prima rose

I apologize that these photos are not in the right order, but I had such a hard time taking photos of this cause the pages wouldn't stay open.. I actually used a few of the clips to help pull the pages apart long enough to be able to snap a photo..LOL  so, I actually wasn't able to take the photos in order..
If you want to view a bigger picture, just click on the photo itself and that will make it bigger. .this way you can see all of the little details I added..

Ok.. whew!! that was a lot of photos to upload, but I'm in love with this mini and can't wait get go rummage through some of my daughters photos from when she was younger and add them in here or actually maybe, I will give this to her as a gift and she can add her own memories in it..Hmmmm!! LOL
I want to thank you ladies so much for stopping today and checking out my Monday post for Your Memories Here..

Supplies from my own stash:
Chipboard, envelopes, liquid pearl, butterfly punch, leaves, chipboard letters,
