Life Is A Bowl of Cherries is mini album created using Echo Park' s "Homegrown" Collection. This particular collection consists of colors of black, burgundy, teal, red, green, tan, brown, blue, pink, yellow and orange. The design paper includes various prints including watering cans, pineapples, watermelons, tomatoes, roosters, carrots, milk bottles and of course cherries! This was such a fun album to create and would be fun to add photos of various themes or occasions.
Each of the 6 6" x 8" pages are simply decorated to add 4" x 6" photos with minimal trimming. Each page has a pocket which includes a pull out tag that has room for additional photos on the front and back and the flaps can be used for smaller photos or journaling. Most of the photo mats on each page is embossed with designs from my personal collection that gives added texture and interest. The stickers used throughout the album are from the collection and are placed so photos can be easily placed on the mats or tucked behind them.
All of the design papers were inked around the edges to give a soft distress look and on both of the inside covers I included pockets that hold more photo mats and journaling tags.
The outside is simply decorated with a rooster that was cut using one of my personal dies and corrugated paper and thought it would coordinate nicely with the design of the paper. The cover wraps around to the front and has a magnetic closure to keep all contents inside secure.
I hope that this album will be filled with many fond memories!
