I feel like it has been FOREVER since I have been able to get on here to post! I have been so utterly busy and of coarse I just have to take on more responsibilities since apparently I'm just not happy unless I am beyond stressed out! I need to learn just how to say NO! And guess what, I told myself NO and put EVERYTHING that needed to be done (aside from clothes and house cleaning) and I got my nephews mini album kicked out!
So, if you remember from my post from Exploring Cricut last week, I made the little baby boy and First Tooth saying. Well, those items went into my project that I am going to show you today!!!
I am part of a group on Face book called PLAY ALONG. In the group, we got a video on how to make a Paper Bag Mini Album. From the album itself, to the binding, to the fold out pages, we made it ALL ourselves!! Ginger (My Sister's Scrapper) had 6 videos on how to make this album, so I followed the videos, and I now have one album done for my nephew Jason!
Here are my pics:
