My Mini-Me Album

My mini-album was a challenge for me. I scrapbook about everyone else (mostly my kids) and never myself or my husband. Like the rest of us I'm the one behind the camera. Well my new challenge is to take more pictures of myself and scrapbook about it.

The mini album was fun and easy to create with the paper pack Avonlea (one of my favorites right now), Scholastic paper packet, and the brand new Cricut Arstiste cartridge. The pages of the mini album are dimentional elements that come in the Cricut Artiste Collection. I covered the dimentiional pages with our Avonlea paper which I cut out with the Artiste cartridge.
On the cover of the album I used our Houndstooth Alphabet for the title and inked in one of our brand new colors Slate.
I also added some Silver Shimmer Trim and a flowers from the Floret Papers Shapes pack throughout the album.
I used the brand new Approved Acrylic stamp set to make pockets, sayings and tabs.

Thanks Gloria! The Approved stamp set makes journaling shapes and it has the sayings I used in the album and the pocket I used was from Artiste. Sorry for the confusion. This was one of the make and takes from Convention that I didn't get time to make there.
