Celebrate the sweet life.

A lot of people see patterns and fashion and pretty scenery and use that as their inspiration when they are creating something.  I’m not one of those people.  I don’t know what that means if it’s a left brain/right brain thing or what, but when I sit down to create, my inspiration, my roadmap really does come from the product that I am working with.  And when I got my box of all the new Glitz stuff I had a bunch of ideas comin’ at me right and left.  The first idea?  Use the Glitz chipboard album and make something with it.

Whoa.  I’ve never done this before!  So what I decided to do was go big or go home.  I actually combined the Vintage Blue and the Dance in Sunshine albums to make one big one.

I added in some large glassine bags as pockets to store some keepsakes in this little album. 
And then I embellished both sides of the bag with pretty Glitz peek-a-boos, whatnots, stickers and more.
