Together at home!!

Hi everyone!!

If you know me... you know that Mini Albums are NOT my fave thing to make... I make them.. but they are NOT on my top list of "YAY!! It's time to create!" list... lol :)  

With that being said ... BEFORE Brookie's 6th birthday party we had earlier this month..... I knew we'd have a TON of photos from her party... and I wanted to make sure I could scrap them right away ... 

sooooooo....

I PRE-MADE a mini album before her party, so I could just add the photos in quickly afterwards!!!

GO ME!!!! *wink* 

I couldn't believe I WILLINGLY made a mini album... and better yet... had it photo-less at first until the party photos were printed out! lol! :)

Here it is --




I made this using Simple Stories that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com and used Helmar glue to adhere everything down :)


 






















Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  20. I'm amazed, Julie, that you had time to make this marvelous creation in addition to planning a fun party for your DD! Go, you! The doll cake is soooooo cool. My mom-mom used to make a similar thing for me when I was very small, but it had a different kind of plastic doll at the top.

  37. Hey there Julie...miss coming by, too - internet is hideously expensive on the ship, so doing the bare minimum...in Turkey atm, just a quick stop by to let you know I'm still alive. Fat, from eating sooo much food on board, but alive!!!! LOVE this mini....I was v pleased I've 'done' my travel journal - am diarising every night then will just add piccies when I get home...makes it easy-peasy, as I can see here:):):) Take care......
