Just a new little mini for you tonight using the Sweetness collection by Pink Paislee and some gorgeous images from Crafty Secrets. This ten page little chipboard album measures 6x6 and is packed full with yummies - so much that it doesn't really "close".

Recipe for Sweetness:
Paper - Pink Paislee; cardstock - American Crafts
Flowers & Pearls - Prima, Recollections
Punches - Martha Stewart
Pins - Maya Road & vintage corsage
Vintage images - Crafty Secrets (Birds & Blooms, Little Blessings, & Vintage Photos)
Ribbon - Offray & JoAnns
Acrylic Rose - Melissa Frances
Other - laces, buttons, doilies, beads
(I'm sure I forgot some things so please ask if there is anything else you would like to know!)

And some close-ups:

These three scraps from Crafty Secrets are my all time favs - I just can't get enough of them!! All three are a great addition to your shabby/vintage collection!
