My First Mini Album

I have been bitten by the scrapbooking bug I just never knew what fun it could be along with art journaling so here is my first mini album



things that have been going on around here Noah got the good character award at school. Brinsley has her first job waitressing. I really hope to update the little shop next week!

We have no plans for the weekend which makes me really happy! I am ready for a relaxing weekend because next weeks going to be crazy prom is next Saturday!

Oh I got my box of goodies from Janel's swap today I loved everything I was like alittle kid at Christmas what a bunch of talented ladies!

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend

Craft swap sounds like such a fun idea. I've never heard of it before.

Also, that is really cute and inspires me to work on Asia's scrapbook tonight!!

I have been a long time scrapbooker
When I moved to GA I got a job at a scrapbook manufacturing company that was here in Savannah. LOL
I LOVE all the different papers and do not even get me started on my favorite scrapbooking tools! LOL Girl I could talk your ear off about scrapbooking. LOL I actually have a group of women that I scrap with once a month.

You Mini Album looks great!

Your album is so cute!! I've never scrapbooked either, but I might have to try it now that I'm getting into art journaling. Thanks for the inspiration!

Very cute! I love the photo of your kids, it's great! It would look really cool in black and white. Have you ever made a paperbag album? They are super fun!

I am not a big scrapbboker, but I like doing it from time to time. I am sure that you will love it! The paper is so pretty! It is always nice to have a son with good character. That will never go out of style.
Have a nice weekend.

What a cute scrapbook, Carrie! I just made one for Brittany with all of her newspaper clippings about her running accomplishments...it's about 25 pages long and it took me FOREVER to finish it, but I think she'll really like it. It will be part of her graduation gift.

Kristie said...

The scrapbook looks great, Carrie! That's awesome about the craft swap, too. But, I wouldn't be able to play with you guys because all of my talent lies within writing.

Amber said...

Love your little album. Perfect for capturing an entire day of memories in one place.
