My Friends Mini Album!

It's Friday and we have an extra special post over at Frosted Designs today! We are getting to know some of the new girls on our design team a little better! Be sure to stop over and give them a warm welcome!

We have a new challenge today.... and it is a recipe!! I love these challenges! This one is as easy as 1, 2, 3... or should I say 3, 2, 1?!  We are asking you to use....

3 patterned papers
2 fonts
1 journaling tag

My daughter wanted to make a mini album of her friends so we created this together! We decided to use up some supplies I had laying around which included an old cereal box! First let me show you what we made....


This cute little mini album is for my 8 year old daugther to show off all of her pictures with her friends. The colors look great for her bedroom too!  As you can see they are a pretty silly group and we have plenty of pictures to fill this album with!


We started with a cereal box. I was able to cut it up and get all four pages from one box. The pages are 6 x 7.5. I measured and cut the tabs on three of the pages then covered both sides with patterned papers. The last page does not have any tabs.  Once all the pages were covered, it was just a matter of embellishing it the way we liked (and there are plenty of flowers and bling on it because Lauren wanted to decorate the cover herself!! lol!!)


Here is one of the inside pages that we completed. Lauren still needs to go back and add a little journaling to each page! (I will add some journaling tags for this!)

And there you have it! A very inexpensive mini that you can put together in an evening! I love quick and cheap!! Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to stop over at Frosted Designs to see what our team of ladies did with this challenge! You are sure to find some inspiration there!

And a quick side note to my blogging buddies who think I have come up missing... I am so sorry I haven't been visiting but I promise to make it up to you! Between bringing on the new team at FD and starting my new position at SNR things have been crazy busy for me! Top that off with company coming non stop,  getting the house ready, and getting ready to leave for spring break... I barely have time to sleep! lol!! I have been so busy! So please forgive me if I am a little slow visiting! I will get back into the groove of things soon!

What a FANTASTIC little scrapbook! If you don't mind, I may lift this idea for an upcoming "Trash to Treasure" workshop that I'm planning to host...turning everyday, throw-away items into crafty treasures!
