The Twinery and The Play Date Cafe

The Twinery is sponsoring the challenge this week over at The Play Date Cafe...and the color combo is just fabulous!  Check it out...
As soon as I saw this, I thought of Pink Paislee's Portfolio Collection along with some Stone, Denim and Buttercream Twinery Twine.  I combined them all into a cute little mini album created from a Lori Whitlock cut file on my Silhouette.  The album contains a whole bunch of the funny pictures of my daughter from my cell phone. 

Each page of the album has a pocket and a tag.  This gave me plenty of things to embellish and add pictures to!

Since most of the pictures are silly ones, I used the first tag to describe the contents... embellished with a little Denim Twine.

Since the colors were grey and yellow as well, All I could think of is the song, "You are my Sunshine", so I used some of the verses on the pages.

The Portfolio tags and arrows, coordinated perfectly with the crazy photos.


I also used a bunch of the Pink Paislee Artisan pieces...and inked them with some Distress inks...I love the resist factor!


It was such a fun and easy album to put together since the Twine colors coordinated so perfectly with the Portfolio collection.  Make sure to stop by The Play Date Cafe to see the other creations, you won't be disappointed.  Be sure to link up your creation to win a fun prize pack from The Twinery. Thanks for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments!
