Blog Candy Give Away!!!  see below for details :)

For this blog hop I have created a quick 6x6 Mini Album created using Heartfelt Creations Enchanted Sea collection.

I was originally inspired by Katherine McElvain from a blog post on Bella Blvd. Such a cute idea with all the flips and flaps, and it goes together very quickly!  You can see her post here.

I followed her easy tutorial first, then decided I wanted a bit more space, so I adjusted the size and folds a bit.  I will post my revised measurements later this week, so be sure to check back if you are interested.

This first pic shows all the flaps opened up.

Detail on the shell...  This was stamped, then die-cut with Heartfelt Creations Coral Reef Die set.  I shaped it with my McGill flower shaping tools.  I love all the definition :)

The Hibiscus was colored with chalk inks.  I added some micro-beads for the stamen and center.
