Crafty Secrets May Linky Party

WOW another month is gone by already!
Whew!  Life needs to slow down a bit (and to think I'm supposed to be RETIRED!  lol)
It's a new month and time for a new Linky Party at Crafty Secrets.

Our Design Team theme is:
It doesn't get any easier than that!!!

Remember, to play along you don't even have to follow our DT theme ... you simply need to use SOMETHING/ANYTHING CRAFTY SECRETS sells on your creation!  That's all there is to it!  AND, if you don't have anything they sell in your stash (which I don't know why you don't! LOL) ... there are FREEBIES offered each month to help enable you to join in the fun!  Come check it out and play along!!

I decided to create a mini album that a couple could use to add some wedding photos & notes ... or an old married couple like me & hubby ... who could also add some memorable lifetime photos and journaling.
I'm sorry I don't have a tutorial for you today.  But just so you know, the base of this mini album are backing card boards from paper packs that I've covered with the beautiful DP-230 Pastel Tile Paper.

The other Crafty Secrets products used are:
Metallic Flourishes (no longer available)

I hope you like my mini album and you'll want to be sure and pop over to the blog to see all the amazing projects the team has created for your inspiration this month!!  You will find helpful hints, tips and tutorials on each members personal blogs as well ... to help you out, here's a list of their blogs.

Now it's your turn to play with Crafty Secrets Goodies!!
I'm looking forward to seeing what you create!  You will have until midnight PT on Sunday, May 17th to link up your creations at our Crafty Secrets Blog.
Hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by and as always . . .
