Jo's Scrap Shack 4th Blogaversary Hop: Day 2

Good day to all my bloggy friends!!
Today, Jo over at Jo's Scrap Shack is Celebrating her 4 Year BLOGAVERSARY!!! 

Thank youJoann! 
It's an honor to take part in your wonderful CELEBRATION.
 My love & hugs go out to you my friend!!

Now if you came here from Angie then you are in the right spot.

It not, you will want to start at the beginning with Jo.

For this year it is a "Anything but a card" theme, so for my project I made a Mini Album for Jo!
(Tutorials are listed below)
I went with the colors black, white, purple and some green
because they are some of Jo's favorite colors.
I used the Black & Ivory Fusion Designer Paper Pad from K&Company.
I distressed all of the edges with black ink.

(Front Cover)
I placed a sparkly frame on the center and added some flowers from Recollections.
I recycled the purple trim from a gift I received 2 yrs ago and made a gorgeous bow with it.
I added swirl rhinestones and flowers for some extra sparkle.
I used the Ribbon & Rosettes cartridge for my black border which I then added a black/silver trim on top. The black/silver trim was something I was saving to use for a special occasion.

Here is a closer look at the pretty flowers & bow.

I added adhesive swirl rhinestones to the inside of the left/right cover.

(I am showing a few of the pages since some of them are duplicated).
I used the decorative top portion of the Embossed Gift Card Holder from My Creative Time to make my tags. I inserted a handmade tag on one pocket and photo mat on the other.

I inserted a few tags with some pretty rhinestones.

A smaller photo mat under the belly band.
I placed a strip of black sparkly trim on each edge of each pocket.

A closer look at the pretty inside tag.

Here is a closer look at all the pretty decorated pages.

I did not decorate the back cover of my Mini Album, but I decorated the spine of the album.
I added a ribbon flower which I made and a sparkly corner border from Recollection.
