Hello, my lovelies!  I am feeling a smidge girly today after my most recent Pinque Peacock project!  Once upon a time, a girl had an awesome lunch with her previously aforementioned AWESOMESAUCE mother-in-law.  That girl, just “happened” to sneak a few Panera coffee sleeves in her purse…(Hey…A girl has to craft!!!)  
Enter today’s project…a coffee sleeve album.  

This was challenging for me in many respects.  First, I don’t **ducks and cringes and runs away** scrapbook. I don’t.  I’m sorry.  I love scrapbooks, but me, myself and I, I just don’t do it.  All my photos are digital, and I prefer them that way.  I also don’t like pastels.  Please see anyone of my previous 100 posts about how pastels and I do not share a likeness for each other.   To top it off, I don’t do mini’s often, and have never done an altered mini.  There, I said it all out loud.  Are you like me?  Then prepare to be amazed, my friends!  I took these plain coffee sleeves, and created this fantastically awesome girly album.  I used a combo of adhesive fabric and pink floral papers from my stash.  I used an accordion binding technique to bind the sleeves, and used iridescent bead trim and chiffon flowers to cover the binding.  On the front, 

I used a chiffon flower with a Pinque Peacock Pinque Floral button for the center, and a beautiful marble glass stickpin as an accent on the closure bow.  

On each page, I use a coordinating stickpin as an accent and to hold memorabilia or photos.  As I said, I don’t do albums, but I love this one!.....Do you?  Would you love it to add to your collection?  I would love for you to have it!  Comment on the Pinque Peacock blog at and follow the Pinque Peacock blog Facebook page at and comment and follow, yes, FOLLOW, my personal blog at Http://….then, this, could be yours!  I LOVE giveaways….don’t disappoint me!!!!

Happy Crafting!
