Boys Are Awesome!


Hi everyone! Wow, I can't believe I am finally blogging in 2015! It has been a while since my last post and boy does it feel good to be at it again! The end of 2014 was super busy with the holidays and then I had to move my entire craft room from the upstairs to the main floor since my little doggie has a bad back and can't climb stairs! And then I had the bright idea to re-package and organize ALL of my stamps! That took a lot longer than I thought! I am still getting the final touches on my craft room complete but I have been creating again and I actually needed to get this cute project posted since it was crafted last year.


This super adorable mini was created as a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law. She had expressed her admiration for my mini scrapbooks and so I made one for her to fill with pictures of her two charming and cute boys. I started this album with the Bella Carta 'Boy Oh Boy' paper pack and then decided on a 'Raw Goods' 4x6 chunky little chipboard book from We R Memory Keepers from my considerable stash of mini albums:) This paper collection is perfect for documenting the fun lives of two rough and tumble boys with its bright colors and bold images. Plus, there were lots of fun stickers to use too!


This album may be mini in size but it holds a ton of pages. There are 10 sleeves included and I created cute pages for both sides of the sleeves. I wanted to show all of the pages but that would be just too many pictures so I featured some of my favorites below!


Cute photo frames complete with their initials!


A banner cut from the paper collection and layered with adorable stickers.


Two big frames to show off their handsome faces!




I dressed up some of the critters with googly eyes!




I featured a lot of stars in this album and die cut larger ones for accents.




All of the bright colors and great shapes in this album just make me smile!






I created a little pocket on the back cover of the album to hold special treasures and trinkets!

Creating this album was so fun and joyful. I love to make special mementos for all of the special people in my life and I know they treasure them as much as I do. Glad to be back in blog land and I hope you will visit me lots this year! 

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
