Monthly Mini: August!

Hi everyone! I am back after taking a short blog break! We traveled to California to visit my daughter and enjoy one more visit to sunny Los Angeles before her and her boyfriend moved back to Denver. We played and ate and drank all over that wonderful city and then took two days to travel across California, Utah, Nevada and even Arizona with a moving truck and two cars!

It's only fitting that after visiting the ocean, I create a mini celebrating it! Most of the supplies for this mini came from The Button Farm Club.  They have the cutest kits that have all the supplies you need to create fabulous mini scrapbooks! This one included a Bo Bunny 6x6 mini binder and the gorgeous 'By The Sea' paper collection from Graphic 45! There are also full instructions included for the entire album but I chose to create pages a bit differently!

I loved the cover design of this album from the Button Farm Club with its stacking and layering. My bow is a bit larger with more loops and I added sequins instead of seashells.

The inside cover features a patterned paper tag with a mini tag and lots of ribbon and twine. The journaling sticker is from the sticker page of the collection!

Love the beach rules! They are perfect for a lazy day, ocean vacation!

A large frame on this page just waiting for a great photo! These are real seashells on the pages!

Another photo spot along with an adorable journaling card! This kit also used some Bo Bunny 'Double Dot' card stock.

The lighthouse was cut from some of the designer paper and I added in a paper pieced sailboat die-cut!

This page features a dreamy mermaid and some vellum waves. I also added in a seafoam bow and a seashell!

Twin pages here for those perfect beach photos! The anchor is a Simon Says Stamp die-cut!

Two cute tags and a bit of twine for this page! The photo corners are stickers from the collection!

Don't you just love this whale clip? I adorned it with some ribbon to really show it off!

For the final page a pocket to fill with more photos or journaling cards! More vellum waves at the bottom of the page along with great layers of this beautiful paper!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
