Graphic 45's Old Curiosity Shoppe Mini

I'm participating in a cigar box and mini swap at and I'm very excited about my very first mini!  I love these papers and they are the perfect collection to use for a mini.  You can find this beautiful collection at Scraputante!

Page 1 - Front Cover:  Used Prima Feathered flowers and "Family" Bird Trinket with a touch of sparkle and bling.
Page 2 & 3:
Page 2 Detail:  Used black corded lace, Dusty Attic Dragonfly colored with Copics and added a bit of stickles and scallop bling for sparkle. 
Page 3 Detail:  Used K&M Company Keys along with Prima's fall butterfly collection.
 Page 4 & 5:
Page 4 Detail:  I thought I would change up each page so this one is a bit different with no picture pocket.  I ultimately decided that I liked the post card pocket's best so you will see them throughout the remainder of the mini.  Added some pearls, Prima butterfly and a little eye chart for our Flying Pig page! lol

Page 5 Detail:  I used Prima's fall feather flowers, and added some corner bling to the pocket and added crystals to the dragonfly body. 

 Page 6 & 7:
Page 6 Detail:  I used the Bo Bunny ETC trinket with a little glitter button bling in the remainder of the pocket corners. 

Page 7 Detail:  Love this beautiful Dusty Attic butterfly painted with Copics.  Also added K&M Company Key with three earth tone buttons for sparkle!
 Page 8 & 9:
Page 8 Detail:  I added this beautiful piece of Dusty Attic.  Colored it with my Copics and added these buttons for extra pop and sparkle!

Page 9Detail:  It would appear that I put this pocket on upside down...Oh well!  Craft and learn!  Added these pretty little buttons for sparkle and the K&M Company Key and Prima Fall feather flower.

Page 10 & 11:
Page 10 Detail:  I used a Prima butterfly that I inked and misted to get it the right color.  Then I added the frosted button bling in the corner of these pockets.

Page 11 Detail:  This detail is a bit hard to see since it's sitting in it's stand.  But I used a brown Prima feather flower and used golden rhinestones for some pop and bling!
Page 12 Back Cover:  Used the flying pig sticker framed with two brown satin buttons for sparkle!

Overall I am very happy with how my first mini came out.  A few mistakes, but nothing too serious so I hope my swap partner, Martica, likes it!  Thank you so much for dropping by my gallery to have a look!  Make it a happy day!!!  Hugs to you dear friends...Dawna
