Summer Album 2011

I LOVE MINI ALBUMS!  I love creating mini albums and sharing mini albums and I just LOVE THEM!!  For me it is easy to make mini albums as most the time when I take pictures it is of an event...like a wedding or a holiday.  So to encompass all those photos and memories, mini albums are much quicker for me to put together and I love them!!

Here is the most recent mini-album I've been working on.  Summer 2011 Album using the latest Simple Stories Line - 100 Days of Summer!

Now these pictures were taken with my phone.  Better ones coming soon of the entire album.  But I couldn't resist showing you a little bit of it!

The Cover: I used my Cinch to bind this baby together.  Can you see the NEW Simple Stories stamped used on the cover?  I used the 100% Real Life stamp set (Month Stamp).  These stamps are ADORABLE!!
Summer 2011 Album
The June Sky.  In this section, I put in a Maya Roads envelope decorated with stickers and a stamp from the 100% Real Life stamp set (Simple Stories | Unity Stamps).  The photos I have placed in 4x6 photo protectors (Target).  I cut 2-up photo pages to make a single 4x6 photo protector for these mini albums!
Summer 2011 Album
Sweet Baby Colin.  Aw my sweet nephew.  Stick him outside, on a blanket, and under a tree and he is so content!  This kid warms my heart already!  He loves the sunlight and warmth...sounds like his Auntie.  I want to think that both my nephews will be like their Auntie...hehe.  Lucas already has lots of Auntie traits.
Summer Album
I crack myself up.  Self portraits... interesting.  HAHA.  There are plenty in my stash.  this one sums up summer.  Warm, Happy and Sunglasses!!  and how about that ADORABLE, I HAD to have it Camera stamp on the opposing page??  This is the NEW Simple Stories | Unity Stamp - Snapshots.  It was a MUST have for my stash.  I stamped the image on Fabric
I will have more and better pictures soon of this album.
What is your favorite summer time memory or event?

Great album Lacey! I would have to say my favorite summer activity is heading to Lake Michigan for some beach time and staying at our favorite hotel in a little beachy town just N of Indiana.
