Nava Ballerina, No.9

Nava's Mom requested a special super girly & glittery album for her 4year old daughter, Nava, commemorating her first dance recital :) It was a bit of a challenge for me because girly and glitter are not words I've ever used in my creative language...like ever. But I took on the challenge and thought of it as good practice for future Olivia and Kennedy crafts :)
The album construction is my *favorite* part...it feels like a storybook! I used a vintage book for the covers, rebound it with dyed faux-leather binding (with a handcut scalloped edge on both sides) and did some stitching to add strength :) I can't wait to make more albums like this!
Full Set here :]
For inquiries about a custom album, journal or guestbook, please email FreckledNest@gmail.com. Prices start at $100 and I can make anything you dream of :)
