“So Happy Together” Album
This fun and bright and collection was perfect for decorating this barn shaped album. All papers and stickers are from the So Happy Together Collection from Echo Park Paper.
I covered each face of the album in patterned paper and then set to work decorating them!
The album follows our life as we have lived on a couple of different continents!
