Mini Album - Mega Work!

Recently, Tina from Tina's Scrapbooking asked me if I could make a couple of projects using the Generations collection from Simple Stories. Being a vintage-style fanatic, I was very happy and excited to use this beautiful paper collection! I got a few small wooden pages to create a cute mini-album, and off I went to my cellar!

I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted to create, but I didn't expect spending sooooo much time making this mini!! In the end, though, I am pretty happy with the results... As I was starting to work on this project, my friend Natalie took a picture of me, that she posted on her blog. You can see how small these pages are!

And here is the outcome, a few weeks later (I couldn't work on this project as often as I wished!).

I entitled this mini-album 'Blessings'. It tells the story of my little family and reminds us of how lucky we are to be healthy and have each other. This is a fact that we often forget about... we sometimes have a lot for ourselves, and take it for granted.

Now; I can hear some of you asking: 'Where are you going to store that album?!'. 'This is bulky, not my cup of tea!'. To which I will answer that this is the kind of little album you put on the coffee table so people can flip through if they want to. It gets the conversation going...

So here is how it unfolds.... let me know what you think!

I created a couple of mini-albums in my mini... I didn't have enough pages to put all the pictures I wanted, so here is what I did to add more:

So, lots of little details for a very intricate mini-album! I loved making every bit of it!
