I finally finished the mini album for my guest design work at My Scrapbook Mania. I had so much fun using the Rough and Tough line from Fancy Pants. I was assigned to use the journaling notebook as a base for a mini album without removing the pages. I have to say it was a bit of a challenge, but it was fun to put the album together. I kind of ran low on product toward the end, but was too busy to go get more between Christmas projects & preparations, birthday preparations for my boys, and other scrapbooking assignments, but I think it turned out okay. I adhered 2 pages together to make them a more sturdy base. That worked out fine since there were 2 of each journaling page. I then added photos to the backs of the pages, and journaling to the fronts. Then I added some simple embellishments, punch holes in the front cover, and added a Maya Road ribbon as a closure.
It was fun to ask my boys what their favorite things are right now. Some of them I already knew, but others I never would have guessed. I think I need to make a similar album for my 2 older girls as well. Hmmm….I think I feel another mini album project coming on.
