Yep, you guessed it another TP Roll mini.
After flattening the TP rolls I painted them with purple acrylic paint outside and inside. The I punch three holes and inserted eyelets of different colors and bound the mini together with pink and purple ribbons. The used a piece of purple wire and strung pink and purple beads on it and added a Butterfly Charm that says "Butterfly Kisses". The background papers are from s Colorbok paper pack I got at Walmart.
All the lace I inked with pixie pink and Iris ink.
To the front I added the purple lace at the bottom and put purple dots across and in the holes I put pink stickle dots. I added the pink bling hearts I got at Michael's. I used Glossy Accents on the butterflies and Girly in purple stickles. The big flower is from Recollections Boutique fleur pack from Michael's. I added Diamond stickles to the edges. The little rose I put pink stickles on.

I cut out a frame from purple paper mounted an acetate piece to the back and attached to the page with foam. Two pink buttons adorn the corners.
Pink lace is adhered to the bottom.

I put a lot of pink bling swirls on this page.
I then added the purple lace at the bottom and ran a string of pearls through the holes.
Very girly!

I left this page plain except for the pink lace across the bottom.
I adhered some bling dots in each hole in the lace.
On this page I made a pocket and adhered purple gems across the top and added two flowers that I took apart and inked up with Pixie Pink then put them back together with purple brads.
I used a K & Company flower on the left.
I put in a journaling tag in the pocket.

This page I left plain, but added the purple lace at the bottom.
The paper was too pretty to cover.

I added the lace at the bottom. A swirly leaf made of chipboard. It came covered with pink foil. Slipped in a journaling tag underneath.

This is the back page. I stamped :
"Designed by Nana for LuLu".

Her Mommie loved the blue one I made and so she requested one for LuLu in pinks and purples.

Front side of the Tags. I used K & Company flowers. I used Glossy Accents on the butterflies and hearts.

Backside of the Tags for Journaling.

Another TP Roll Mini Scrapbook. After I flattened the rolls I then painted them inside and out with a blue mixture of Acrylic paint. I then cut out the background paper from a Colorbok pack. I love the Paisley. I again didn't have any rings so I used twisty ties and colored them blue. I added sheer ribbons and beads and two silver charms. One a butterfly the other a snowflake. Next I added the blue gem blings along the top and bottom of the page. From the EK Success pack I used the sentiment "Dream" and taped it across the front, then attached with tape the butterfly from the same pack. I've been making flowers so thought I'd make this one. I liked how it turned out. I used two med. and one small paper daisy from the Stampin' Up Paper Daisy pack. I then inked them up with Brilliant Blue. I sprayed them with water and shaped them. After they were dry I used Stickles on the petals and added a brad to the center to hold them together. It's attached with a dimensional.

This came out terrible. I couldn't hold the book and take the pic at the same time.
I had wanted you to see the charms and beads I hung at the side of the scrapbook.

Super simple. I put Stickles on the background paper added a gem at the top left corner and two pre-made bows at the bottom.

I had a transparency of this heart so I attached it half way around and put the tag behind it. I put some blue bling gems on the heart. The flowers I purchased from Stampin' Up their Paper Daisies. I took and inked them up with Bermuda Bay, Brilliant Blue , So Saffron and Barely Bannana. Then I sprayed them with water twisted and shaped them and let them dry. After dry I added a brad to the center and adhered them with Glossy Accents. The tag was stamped with silver p[igment ink using the Stampin' Up set "Polka Dots & Paisley. I attached a dragonfly brad and some silver ribbon.

Very simple page. I used stickles on the paper by adding a few dots here and there. Next I had die-cut some dark blue butterflies out using my friend Kris's Big Shot machine. Thank you Kris!
I adhered them with glue at the center so I could fold up the wings. I put Glossy Accents on the butterflies to make them shine.

To this page I used a spray of flowers I had.
I twisted them into the shape I wanted and glued them down. I put a piece of white fun fur underneath the spray.

To this page I taped this beautiful butterfly from an EK Success pack . I found these flowers in a spray and cut them off and then inked them with Brilliant Blue.

This last page was done with the same background paper as the other pages.
I cut out a 2" circle from clear acetate and
used blue glitter glue around the edge. The I adhered it with foam tape half way so a picture could be added behind it. The little tag is cut with the Stampin' Up circle punch 1 3/4". I put a gem brad at the top. Next I cut out two flowers from another paper pack and attached them together with a dimensional and added diamond stickles to it. Lastly, I cut out a silver butterfly and taped it down. All the tags are simple.
