Mini Album using Echo Park's Sweet Girl

I love to read and I love to craft, but I love nothing more than this...
My awesome little girl is the best thing since sliced bread.  
I was really good about scrapbooking her first year and then I fizzled.  I am getting back into it, but looking at my photo backlog usually sending me running for the hills.  
I decided rather than worry about doing them chronologically I would just scrap them as I feel like it.  That's why you date the pages right?
I made this great mini album using Echo Park's Sweet Girl line.  This post has a ton of photos-starting ....NOW!
I started with a Melody Ross mini album.  Most of the pages are completely recovered.
This is the front cover.  Some bakers twine helps define the clothes line.  A big Prima flower and some tiny forget me nots are on the bottom, along with a row of teeny pompom trim.

I used lots of foam tape to raise elements throughout the album.  I also aged the paper by using Distress Ink in Antique Linen.  

The hounds tooth on the side here is part of the original Melody album.  

I love this fluffy ribbon trim.  A rosette and vintage button give it just the right amount of sunshine.   

No album is complete without some washi tape.

Many of the stickers are a heavy chipboard.  

Vintage yellow pompom trim.  

Handmade rose and petals.  More washi tape and forget me nots.  

There's the ruffle ribbon in yellow.  I just glued the chipboard letters right to it.  

Crepe paper poppy.  

Tulle trim in red and gray.

More bakers twine to make the banner.

Vintage red pom pom trim and a big lady bug.

The back cover is the original cover.  I just added the sweet girl embellishment to it.  
Now I just need to add the photos.
Thanks for sticking with me on this  post!
