Today is a lovely day to share albums! We really have some beauties to share with you this fine Tuesday. There's a brilliant Botanical Tea notebook by the talented Nadya Lifa. Then, Donna Espiritu shares a By the Sea mini and tutorial perfect for those summer photos! Sit back, relax, and enjoy today's inspiration!

First, let's see Nadya's beautiful creation!

"Notebooks, notebooks, notebooks... I just love them so much! They need anytime, everywhere, because our life is running and all that we can - keep and record the moments with photo, video and with words! I love doing different notebooks, I especially love to create beautiful inside details and to create a cover. Of course, I again used the favorite Botanical Tea collection ! It is so beautiful that it is difficult to break away!)))" ~Nadya
