Scrapbook mini album

Over on (my other home) their week long challenge for National Scrapbook Day was to make a mini album about me.  After stressing for 3 days deciding what I was going to make (and wasting time thinking) I opted for a book about my scrapbooking life.

This is the first time I have made a mini album.  It was a lot of fun.  I hope to make more but I worry about where to store and display them after it's finished.

Here is the cover.  The title a phrase I say often and has kind of become my motto for this hobby.  I tried to use a variety of supplies.  The entire book is in my favorite colors, green, black and white.

Page one is about how I got started with scrapbooking.  I can honestly say it's all my husband's fault.  On page 2 I describe my scrap space and included a pic.  I used a black and white pic to keep the color tones of the album consistent.

Then page 3 lists all the reasons I love to scrapbook!  Page 4 describes how my style and techniques have evolved since I started.  I'm happy to report that I have come a long way. I tried to use different embellishments and tools I have acquired over the years.

On page 5 I used different words that describe my current style.  Then on page 6 I listed all the paper crafting items I have made.  The picture is me, at my scrap desk, making mailboxes and cards for my kids' Valentine's Day party.

This is the back cover.  I used 'my' stamp as the focal point.  It's fun to say you have your own stamp.

This was a lot of fun and I look forward to making more.
