Fairy Themed Mini Album with Bonnie

I couldn’t resist the new Graphic 45’s Fairie Dust paper collection. The rich colours and charming prints inspired this adorable mini album.

This album is a generous 9.25” x 6.25 “; perfect for tons of 4” x 6” photos. There are many tags, pockets and folders and even a mini photo book inside one of the pockets. Enchanting fairies and a touch of sparkle adorn each and every page. The pictures don't capture the true colours and sparkle in this mini. Drop into the store for a look.
