Grad -- featuring Bo Bunny :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share a mini album I made for my BFF's son's recent high school graduation :) 

My BFF has been a single Dad to Garrison since he was a little over 2 ... and I have been so close to his son -- they even stayed with me for awhile when they were in between homes :) 

I was completely honored to be invited to his graduation in May :)   I brought the big lens with me to make sure and capture the close ups *wink* :)

I used Bo Bunny's Cambridge collection, Chic Tags, Maya Road and some other little goodies :) 

I added a chevron bag to include the program from the Graduation :) 

With the program in the bag :) 

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

A year in review -- featuring Ruby-Rock-It! :)

Hi everyone! :) 

I wanted to share a mini album I made using the "Year in Review" collection from Bella - a Ruby-Rock-It company :) 

But first ... you all know how I NEVER throw anything away, right?  I upcycle/recycle EVERYTHING!!  So many friends and family NEVER throw anything away without asking me first! LOL!! Boy ... I love having everyone trained!  *wink* :) 

So a few weeks ago, my work was giving us these paper/pad portfolios.  The came in a cardboard sleeve. 

I thought they would be PERFECT for mini-albums :)   So I sent a few instant messages to some co-workers and asked them for the sleeves :)  I ended bringing home about 60 of them! :) 

I took about 5 of them, cut them to size to use on this mini album :) 

(Each sleeve is a little bigger than a legal paper pad) :) 

And here is my mini album :) 

Some months in 2013 were busier than others ... so on those months/pages, I added a chevron bag for extra photos and journaling :) 

The extra photos that were tucked inside the bag :) 

And since the bag was already there -- I used the backside of it to lead into the next month :) 

Another bag for July -- but since I didn't have a lot of June photos -- I just added a tag to the backside :) 

The front side of the July bag :) 

The extra photos that were in the bag for July :) 

A bag for October's extra photos  :) 

The extra photos from inside the bag :) 

The backside of the bag to start November's page :) 

I could have added a million chevron bags for December's photos... lol ... however, I did a December Daily last year, so I didn't feel the need to add a ton for December in this album :) 

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