Mini of Us

I normally do not like doing mini albums.  I think I am just one of those people that likes "instant gratification" too much, and doing a mini album just takes way too much time.  However, I have to say I like how this one turned out.  I used My Little Shoebox  "Home Tweet Home".  First of all, I love the colors in this collection.  (They just happen to be the same colors of my scrap room, and they make me happy!)  This was one of my design team assignment for April.  I hope you like it!

Nikki Sivils "Animal Attraction" May's Challenge

If you are a fan of Nikki Sivils then you know that a lot of her papers have the most darling critters on them.  For May, I set our challenge over at Nikki's blog (HERE) to center around animals.  If you participate, you have an opportunity to win some great Nikki papers!  I used Nikki's "Summer" collection for my layout below.  We were recently in Tennessee, and my son just had to have these ice cream cone sunglasses.  What better paper to scrap these photos than to use paper with ice cream cones!

Sharing Some My Little Shoebox With You!

First off  PageMaps and My Little Shoebox are having a contest!  Here is what you could win!  Be sure to check it out!

My Little Shoebox also recently did a promo with Glue Arts.  Below is a layout I made using some of their awesome adhesives.  It is of my little guy on his first day at an actual golf course.  I think he is going to need a  lot more practice.

These next two layouts were part of  the Summer My Little Shoebox CHA booth.  They were picked up for the Summer 2011 issue of Scrapbooking & Beyond that was just released in May.

Thanks for stopping by!
