Heartfelt Creations_In The Garden

Today I created a mini album featuring a song my mother used to sing.  The Garden Romance collection from Heartfelt Creations was perfect for this project!  I started with a used children's board book.  You will find the complete list of products and instructions below.

 Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed day!
