a little mini

Last month, on Write Click Scrapbook, I contributed a tiny mini-album for the gallery. I need to post it here so I can add it to my gallery of mini-albums and link back to this post. If you've already seen it, see you back here Monday! :) If not, here it is!

I made it 3x3 because I just love that size right now! To make the cover, I started with a cereal box. I cut it down and glued two 3x3 pieces back to back for strength/weight. (I put the plain side out, printed side got the glue.) Then I covered the front with strips of patterned paper from a 6x6 paper pad by Pebbles called Walnut Grove. I like mixing patterns from a paper pad because you know they will all look good together, right?

I chose 12 patterns from the paper pad and laid them all out on my desk and then laid each photo on top of the one I thought best complimented it.

I used a "currently" list of prompts to help me decide what to document.

To finish the album, I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch holes and binder rings to bind it. 

For the back, I used some left over strips of pattern and letter stickers to remember when the list was from. A "currently" list really needs the date somewhere!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy scrapping this weekend!

I've been wanting to do a page with these "ing" prompts but I love the idea of a mini album much better. Beautiful!

I love this! I need to do something like this for me. And for my daughter. Also, I want to go get frosted lemonade with you someday. It is my fave.
