Hola my friends! It's Friday and I have such a pretty NEW album to share with you. It's a little different ... in the BEST way!! It's designed with a collection from Prima Marketing called Solecito, which means "little sun" in Spanish. I thought the title was so cute, I named the album that too!
When I first saw this collection I loved the colors and the Latin flair and thought of so many interesting themes that this album could be used for. I also really enjoyed the little nod to Frida Kahlo!
Of course, I immediately thought of Day of the Dead. This festive event is celebrated over two days on November 1st & 2nd so ... it's coming up!
Unlike Halloween which can be a bit dark and scary, this Mexican holiday is all about celebration with explosions of color and life-affirming joy and festivities! The purpose is to show love and respect for family or friends who have died and celebrate their life. That's really nice!
So, I thought this would be a great album to celebrate a loved one who has passed. You can fill it with photos of the two of you and tell the story of your wonderful relationship. It could be about you and your mom or dad, a dear friend or a grandparent.
Oooo, I love this page. The pretty pink paper, the decorated skull and all the flowers. Check out the cute folding element. I added a band of striped paper that holds a little removable card (aka, the flippie). You can add sweet photos to it or use it for journaling.
This album is filled with bright, happy colors and patterns so, I think it would be wonderful for any celebration ... like a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or everyday photos!
Dia de los muertos, or Day of the Dead is a holiday that includes costumes, parades, great food, drinks, dancing, and music. Decorations include marigold flowers and candles. Beautiful!
You can also add simple photos of family, friends or everyday moments just because you love it. No need to worry about a theme! Add pics of you and your sweetie, your adorable littles, or you and your best friends.
It would make a great gift for your teen or college student to document her friends and fun times at school. Mija means "my daughter" in Spanish but, it's also used as a term of endearment so it can be applied to anyone.
So ... what do you think? Isn't it pretty?! I reeeally like this one and had so much fun putting it together. I hope you will too! Thank for stopping by and happy scrapping!
