On the cover, I used the beautiful crystal set CR-05CA-126 - Flickering - Iridescent Crystal to frame their family photo. I further accented the cover with ribbon, chipboard and shells. I kept the pages of this mini relatively clean letting the crystals, pearls and photos do the talking.
On page 2, I used CR-04CA-101 - Enchanting - Clear Crystal behind my chipboard die cut. I love this photo of her and the boys.
I just love these two pages. I used CRS-04CB-113 - Flourish III - Olive Crysal on the right page.
I used the CR-04CB-118 - Lovely -Olive/Lime Crystal set across these two pages. It really makes a beautiful impact when you add the crystals.
I added PEC-03CB-103 -12" Double chains Pearl - Olive to both pages. The left page was designed as a journaling page. This way, my friend can add her thoughts about their trip.
Here are the twins lookinig out onto the ocean. I added a single flourish to the right page (PE-02CB-141 - Symetrical Flourish - White).
On the right page, I added CRB-03CA-113 - Long Flourish Crystal VI - Iridescent (shimmering-clear) as the focal point. This long flourish allows you to add your own special touches while still being able to see the crystals.
I kept these pages simple and added CRW-04CB-111 - Small Flourish (A) Pearl - Soft Blue to the left page. It mimics ocean waves and coordinates perfectly with the photo.
