Papercraft Star Challenge 159

Welcome to another challenge over at the Papercraft Star.  This week's photo inspiration is a royal one! Isn't that crown just gorgeous!  When I was a little girl my mother used to call me "reina"  which is spanish for queen.  Now I find myself calling my daughter reina too.


I created this scrapbook for my little daughter.  The other day I heard her telling my son, "I'm the queen so you have to clean up the room".  I had to try real hard to keep from laughing!  I had to tell her, "OH no your majesty, you helped make the mess you help clean it up"! 

I used papers from Pink Paisley's London Market along with a spellbinders crown die.  I added some prima and wild orchid craft flowers and some Prima bling.  A little distressing to the edges gave it a more vintage look.

I added some charms to a toggle clasp and some seam binding along the spine of the book.  I made the crown charm using a vintage button and a bead cap and a crown adhered to the top using E6000.  I can't wait to add all the mats in the album and fill it with pictures of my little reina.  I hope you give this challenge a try.  I love to see what everyone comes up with each week.  Our design team had even more inspiration for you over on the Papercraft Star blog.  Thank you so much for stopping by.
