Spellbinders Round One Submission Valentino Album - Part 2

Thank you for all of your comments for Part One of the Nostalgic Album I created for the Spellbinders Design Team Contest, and your kindness - it means so much to me!  You can see Part One of the Album HERE               

I tend not to think of it as not making Round Three, but being one of the forty Designers who were chosen from over one hundred - to make it into Round Two!  I am posting this tonight, rather than the morning - just because I can! LOL!

The DP is from Stampin' Up and made creating this so easy - double sided and the perfect thickness.  The Crafty Secrets Nostalgic images, lace and pearls, long with Wild Orchid Flowers continue through the Album.

A Paper Doily, Seam Binding and some Stampin' Up Hardware add to the layers and nostalgic feel.

I could not resist using the 'Album' Label on the Crafty Secrets sheet of images - finished things off perfectly!

Lots of layers, an eclectic creation that was a pleasure to create and saw me through to Round Two.  I will be back tomorrow to show you my next Project....one I am as equally happy with, but did not take me any higher in the Contest....I am looking forward to seeing the projects of those who made it through to Round Three - a very talented Group of ladies - who are to be narrowed down to the Design Team Finalists - all the best ladies!

I have used the following Spellbinders Paper Arts Dies on this project:
Spiral Blossom One, Foliage, Labels Twenty Two,  Fleur de Lis Pendant (Discontinued), Floral Doily Motifs and Accents, Classic Oval LG, Decorative Dress Forms, Labels Seventeen, Lattice Rectangles, Ironwork Accents.  All Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

This project is for the following challenges:
Cupcake Craft - Something New (Crafty Secrets Images)
House of Gilli - Anything Goes
