Sisters Mini Album

Happy Friday everyone! I don't know about all of you but the weeks seem to be flying by! My kids have been out of school for 2 weeks already! This summer is going to fly by! I have been busy with family so I have not had a lot to post lately but today, I have a mini album I created of me and my sisters! Our challenge at Frosted Designs this week is to use a journaling tag on your card, layout or project! Easy, right?! Well, this week at Frosted Designs we have a wonderful sponsor... Amy, from My Monster Creations! She sent some of her mini albums to several of the ladies on our design team and you will be blown away by the gorgeous, creative ways they decorated them! Here is mine....
The front of the album had a flower cut out that I turned into a cute little shaker box! I filled it with seed beads and outlined it with twine.

That's me with my two sisters. Cindy, on the left is the oldest and Jennifer, on the right is the youngest! And of course I am in the middle!

I love creating pockets in this mini. On the right side, I created two pockets where I could place several tags. Each tag contains a story about me and my sisters from childhood!

I wanted an extra page in my mini so I took a paper sack, sewed the sides and added it to the mini. It also gives me an extra pocket to store extra photos.

I had so much fun putting this mini together! Be sure to stop over at Frosted Designs to see all the minis our team created! Also be sure to stop back throughout the week.... we will be posting more pictures of each mini this week! If you want to make a mini of your own, be sure to check the Frosted Designs site for a special deal that Amy is offering for our followers! At her special price, you are going to want to order several!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and spoil all the wonderful dads in your life!
