My collection of Willow Tree angels began several years ago, when one of my closest friends, Val, gave me one for my birthday. It was the angel of happiness and I was absolutely delighted with her.
I received my second one from Val the following Christmas-- an ornament-- the angel of beauty. And for almost every birthday & Christmas since, I have gotten an angel from her as a gift.
I love my collection of angels. I think that they are beautiful and wonderfully crafted. But what I think I love most about them, is that when I look at them, I think of Val and the treasure that our friendship is to me.
I made the mini-album with 5”x6” chipboard, Daisy D’s patterned paper and a We Are Memory Keepers decorative eyelet. I cut a brown hair elastic and attached it to the back with a We Are Memory Keepers snap, so that it loops around to the front to keep the album closed. I used Jessica Sprague’s Echoes of Asia digital kit to add frames to my photos, and I added text as well in my Microsoft Picture it Publishing.
