Mini-album




Good morning! The sun is shining brightly, but it's still freezing cold outside. I can hardly wait for Spring to get here. DH is out of town for the day on a job, so I've been working on a mini-album. I'll still have to go to work later, but I was able to get a lot done on it. I couldn't sleep the other night, and was going to get up and make a card, but it turned into the album instead. I worked on putting it together until 3 am that night. Last night I couldn't sleep again, but made myself stay in bed and plan how I wanted to embellish my album. This morning I started on it and I'm really liking how it's turning out. I'm going to put pictures of myself, my brother and sisters in it, from when we were very young. Here's what I've gotten done so far...the cover and the first 2 pages. I really like the brown, pink and green together and I've almost used up my brown ink pad, giving it that "shabby-chic" look. And of course, I used my Cricut to cut out my flower, scalloped circles and initial for my cover. Don't know how I ever made a card or did a scrapbook page before I got my Cricut!
Got to go to work now...have a good day, everyone!

love how this is turning out. The colours are beautiful too. What is the patterned paper you've used? I really like it.
Thank you for sharing your pictures of this sweet album

Hi Tracy! Thank you for your lovely comments. The paper is actually from a paper pad I picked up at Walmart. It's made by ATD. I loved all the colors and patterns and there are several in each grouping that coordinate. Picking out paper that matches and goes well together, especially patterns, has always been a problem for me, so this paper pad has been a big help.
