Painted Blooms Mini Pocket Album

Here's another easy album to feast your eyes on. Oldie but a goodie - made of one sheet of 12x12 designer paper. This one's for my niece (just turned 10) to fill with whatever she wishes. She really is amazingly amazing with an array of creative talents so I hope she has fun with it!
