Mini Album Mania Challenge

Hey there! It's been a while. While I'm not able to fully get this blog and store back up just yet like before, I'm taking little steps, particularly when it comes to creating. I've been painting, picked up a new skill (cake decorating), and making handmade mini albums.

I'm fortunate to be part of a new challenge led by the awesome Leslie Turner. It's called Mini Album Mania Challenge and I invite you to check out the projects by the design team and then perhaps join in. The challenge is all about all types of handmade mini albums -- no more than 6 inches on any side, at least 3 pages, embellished and decorated, photos are optional. It runs for 6 weeks so plenty of time to create :-)


Here is my mini album -- my main project photo + a flip through of the different pages. For the pages, I used the Mixed Media A2 Card Fronts. For the front and back covers, I used thin basswood sheets (approx. 5.75x5.75 inches) and covered them with designer paper from my old stash.

I have to disclose that I had help in making the album -- my two girls :-) They decorated the cover and the pages with the rub-ons and chipboard stickers (again, from my old stash).

I hope you enjoy looking through my mini album. I call it The Shopping Cart 2021 Mini Album. On September 25 of each year since 2018, I have been taking photos of the girls while they are seated in a shopping cart. This year I will have to be creative, as the girls have grown and don't exactly fit in the shopping cart seat anymore :-)
