mini album love...

I have a new found passion! Mini albums! =) Aren't they fun? Love how you can fit so many photos, yet it's still a small space to work with. Sometimes I struggle with large areas to decorate, like layouts. Anyhoo....I was asked to be a guest designer for Magistical Memories this month and just completely adore this clear star album that I received in the mail. I decided to use some winter photos of my girls from last winter and my favorite color combo right now, red and blue! I have also been using a little bit of black lately. Edward from Trading Spaces always says you need a splash of black...OK..I know... I watch too much HGTV! ha But I do love how it "grounds" all of the other colors. Here's my JOY mini....
(Currently Out For Publication, Scrapbook Trends - Feb. 2009)
Page 1 - daddy and girls sledding...they all decided to pile on one day...too cute!
Page 2 - Kati loving the taste of snow! I couldn't stop laughing when I saw her doing this! She was SOOO into it!Page 3 - Taylor making snow angels! She has such a ZEST for life...actually that's an understatement! Love the expression on her face!Page 4 - daddy plowed a path out of the yard with the snowblower and here they are getting pulled around the path! They loved it.
Played with my stamps today..this is just a simple card I made with some cute new Doodlebug stamps. I created a musical note with the heart and swirls and cut the middle out of the Making Memories 5th Avenue spiral journaling page to surround the sentiment. What do you think...does it look like a musical note? Ok...maybe not so much! LOL
Kati has been sick this week with a stomach bug...I thought it was gone but now has returned. She woke up this morning crying because of a stomach ache again. I guess we captured some germs along the way on our trip! Practicing for when school starts...we always seem to get sick right when school starts!

Thanks for your sweet comments and have a terrific day! ~Danielle~
