Space Party Mini Album

Hi Everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217Creations.  I am so happy to share my fun mini album.  I think these would make great favors for a party. In fact I made them to coordinate with the Space Party favors I made for post yesterday on my personal blog.  One of my favorite tools is the YourStory machine.  I don't use it as often as I should.  But when I do I fall in love all over again!  Here are a few close ups followed by all the cuts and directions.
