Summer Dreams Mini Album

Hello!  I just wanted to share this little mini album that I made over the summer.  I wanted to try a smaller size with a simpler format--this is a 4 x 6 album.  The paper collection is DCWV Summer Dream which I got at Joann Fabrics when it was on sale.  I love the colors and patterns of the paper.  I decided to paint the edges of the chipboard with Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers by Ranger Ink.  I used Pearl, Purple Twilight and Lettuce to coordinate with the papers.  I also used the Pearl dabber on some of the flowers.  This is one of my favorite colors because it has a soft shimmer that is so pretty!  I can't wait to use it in some Christmas mini albums.  On this album, I also incorporated things from my stash: Me & My Big Ideas chipboard embellishments, Prima paper flowers, buttons, fibers, Ranger Stickles, and more. 

Hope you like it!  Thanks for looking.

Grad School Scrapbook Layout

Here is another 2-page 12x12 scrapbook layout of me and the Musketeers from grad school.  This layout features us in class goofing around and celebrating Kristie's birthday.  I used paper from the Basic Grey Sugared collection.  The rest of the embellishments are from my stash and include Basic Grey buttons, American Crafts fabric Thickers, Chatterbox Dimensional Stickers, paper scraps and miscellaneous bling.  Nothing too fancy, but I loved the colors and trying new things.
