Welcome to the end of my mini week! Do I hear cheering??! Ha! Well I better because to celebrate, I'll have a teeny giveaway at the end of this post so keep reading! (And no jumping to the end! :)) This little mini was made for my friend, Shelby, and her most adorable daughter, Anna! Seriously, those eyes just melt me! Shelby just better be glad she and Anna don't live closer or I'd have to "borrow" her all the time! Can you blame me?
This mini's special feature is that I used an entire package of BG's Sugared chipboard sticker shapes to complete it. An entire package - ok, well except for the super tall ones that wouldn't fit, but still! And it was SO fun!
As always, you'll see I followed my every-other-page pattern for photos and journaling. And on each of the journaling pages I added a huge chipboard sticker section. I loved adding them together to create little scenes, too.
Really. Anna's face is just so darn animated it's hard not to find something to love about it. She completely cracks me up. Keep looking, I think you'll agree! ;) I'm still so grateful to Shelby for sharing these images with me. I owe her big time.Say it with me now...awwwwwwwwwwww....nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby!
And how can anyone have eyes this blue? Her eyes really ARE this blue. It's unreal I tell you.My biggest goal for this week was to show you that mini albums don't have to be difficult, time consuming or complicated. They can be done in an afternoon and are a great way to use up photos that you just love but that might not make it onto a scrapbook page because you have so many. I hope that you got a little inspiration and might just decide to make one of these little books yourself to keep or giveaway (but I warn you now, they're HAAAAAAAAAARRDDD to give away once you get done! :))
If you're so inclined to get started, but just don't have any minis yet, post here. You'll be entered to win two of BasicGrey's wonderful chipboard albums - the scallop from yesterday's post and the dark chocolate chip (black) swatch mini. You'll love 'em. I only ask that you show me what you make with them when you're done!
Happy Friday, all!
