“Family” Mini Album


Alda sure knows how to push us to the extreme. She posted a great challenge up in the Flying Unicorn forum. A mini album from scratch.  The tutorial was on play date Thursday with excellent instructions. I was surprise at how easy it was to out together.


I am so happy I am a hoarder, I had everything in needed to put this together. I even found some tissue tape.  I knew which pictures I was going to use So I picked out my paper and flowers to match the pictures.


I new I wanted embellishments on the pages so I picked out those and prepped them all. I used Shimmerz, ink, embossing power, you name it I put it on there.


This mini turned out awesome. Just love it and I was surprised how fast I got it done.

This was so fun. I will be doing another one of these. I love the fact I can use some of my stash up to make room for more. He He. No it’s time to clean the office and put everything back together.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today!
