Lucas Mini Album

Today I actually got a chance to scrapbook. SHOCKER! I rarely scrapbook for myself anymore. I'm often completing projects or challenges or blog stuff. Today, I got a chance to finish an album that I wanted to do when Lucas was born.

About 5 months ago I put the polk-a-dot paper on the cover of the album and that is as FAR as I got. I had it all set aside waiting for me to complete it.

So I thought with the snowy weather, it would be a perfect day to play with Fancy Pants Kraft paper and finish this album. I made a homemade latte in.

To check out the whole album, go to my website, A Swirl of Memories. I have it posted in my blog on there as well as a few photos in my gallery.

I have been trying to purge my scrapbook papers and supplies. I have so much that I have not used or even looked at in years. I'm sending my friend Sandy's daughters a box of goodies! I wish I would be there to see their reaction.

I also recently decided when I'm complete with a mini-album and paper line. To get rid of ALL small scraps I know I won't use. And my goal when creating is to USE the supplies I have and use as much of it as possible, so I don't have a lot left over.

When I put together my MemoryWorks Simple Stories, I used all the paper except for a 4x6 piece. I had some stickers left over. I created 26 pages with the kit! I have some previews of my album in my gallery!

Happy Saturday! I'm glad I got to be creative today!
