Earth Love Mini Album

Finally made a mini album for the photos of Preston and myself at Lost Maples last fall. I think the edited photos will look great with the Earth Love paper.  Such a really cool line.  I love it!

I learned how to make the flowers from the sister-in-law, Stephanie.
Also, make sure you check out the Mariposa mini she made for our swap we had earlier this month. I will be posting pictures really soon from this month's swap...so much fun :)


Had a lot of fun using my glitter pen with this album too!

The brown block on the right page is actually a piece of cork. Going to attach some cute charms and other things.

Helen shared some of her burlap and I love the texture and color with this paper line.





This is probably one of my favorite pages in the album. Love the birds and ribbon!

Can't wait to add the photos and finish this album.  I think it is going to be my favorite album I have made that I have kept for myself :)

Birthday Mini

Here is a mini album that I made for my birthday this week.  I have been wanting to make a little album with the Urban Prairie paper and thought all of the bright and fun papers would make a great birthday book. I really loved how it turned out and can't wait to fill it with photos of great memories!

New item that i have absolutely LOVED lately.... glitter gel pen. Oh my.

Mosquitos are already attacking me while taking photo #1.


Almost had to call in reinforcements to fight the flock of mosquitos off....
There is a reason why people call it the "state bird of Texas"

Follow your Bliss Mini Album


Helen, Me, and Stephanie in the "Follow Your Bliss" Class at the Great American Scrapbooking Convention.

Busy putting together the album.


My mini from the class. Followed the kit instructions, but I did change it up a little.










Mini Album Swap

Stephanie, Me, and Helen

My aunt, sister-in-law, and I decided to do a mini album swap between the three of us. We just recently swapped our albums out at The Great American Scrapbook Convension in Arlington, so I can post pictures of the mini albums now!!

Here is a look at the mini that I made for my sister-in-law, Stephanie.




Here is a look at the fabulous mini that my aunt made for me. She found the bingo cards at an antique mall and used some awesome vintage buttons throughout the album. Such a great mini that my husband and I can record the progress of our garden this year (our last name is Bean). Thank you so much Helen!








And you have to go check out the album the Stephanie made for Helen. I will post a link as soon as she posts some pictures on her blog. It was awesome!!
