Hi, everyone! It’s Karen Jiles here and I have to admit that I really enjoyed working with the Compose Your Life Collection to create this romantic album cover. The papers are absolutely beautiful. The collection includes several patterns that coordinate perfectly together. I created the album cover to hold some special Spring photos and this paper collection is just the right collection to work with. It’s so feminine and detailed. I coordinated the paper collection with flowers, crocheted doily, pearls and dyed ribbon.
