Your new blog look is so pretty. And your Shabby album is gorgeous. I love that you used a soft textured fabric for the backing and then added stronger textures on top. It looks great!
Hugs,

What a lovely new look, I love the birds and the handwritten background. I have been wanting to make a book of some sort for ages to keep quotes from my children over the years but haven't found the right thing - I thought maybe an embroidered cover (a future skill to learn!) - maybe your beautiful project will prompt me into action!

Thank´s for visiting one of my blogs "YAYA". When I started blogging I did a few blogs and I actually did "YAYA" for my mom, but I do not post there very often. The one I keep update is "The Best of Live". I would love it you could follow me on this one. I put your "button" in my blog.
Have a lovely day!
Maria
