my very first mini book!!

Hi all
I have been wanting to make a mini book for ages and so here is my first one...its 6x6 in size and I have used the gorgeous madame payrauds range...papers butterflies,pleated trim etc.....
I also used a sizzix birdcage die,a joycrafts Eiffel tower and banner die.cheery lynn hearts and butterflies dies. All  the organza ribbon and gems are from meiflower crafts .I used kraft card. ,a craft-dee bow bow maker. The mulberry flowers  are from wild orchid.i have left the photo panels empty but I will fill them with sepia photo,s of my mum and dad and give it as a gift to my daughter...
