Belated Thanksgiving wishes!

Hi, everyone!
I know this is late.  That's what being sick for 3 weeks+ does to a person!  Anyway, I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving!  I also need to announce that there is another give-away coming up!  This will bring a Merry Christmas to someone who comments!!!  Watch for details coming soon!!

Blessings and hugs!

My "Winter-Time" Mini inspired by Laura Denison's Steampunk Time Machine

Hi, everyone!
Thanks for stopping by today!!!  I'm pretty excited about how this project turned out!  I love it when I picture something in my head and can actually make it happen!!!  A million thanks to the uber-talented Laura Denison at, for the awesome instructions and class she did on a similar mini that she called Steampunk Time Machine.  I needed a hand-crafted gift for a family member who takes TONS of pictures and this fills the bill.  The mini inside has "tons of real estate" as Laura likes to say.  She should be able to put between 50-60 pictures inside.  Thanks for checking it out!!! 

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!!

Giggles and hugs!

UPDATE: I'm getting lots of questions about where the mini is, so I took a picture the best way I could think of to show you how it slides out of the center portion.  If you watch Laura's Ustream class on this, you can see how it's done.

I'm getting questions about the inside of the mini.  I just made the pages in Laura's pattern from silver, shades of blue and gray.  I left the pages very plain so that the recipient can fit lots of pictures inside.  So there are no embellishments or decorations on the inside at all.  All the "goo-gaw" is on the outside! ;)

Mini album for our Granddaughter who will be in the Macy's Parade!

Our granddaughter, Taylor, was selected to partcipate with the National Cheer Association in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and we are so proud of her!!  She asked me to make a scrapbook to keep all the mementos and photos of her trip in.  Ever had one of those projects that should be simple and that you struggle with like there's no tomorrow??  Well, that was THIS project!!!  Just a basic mini!  Should have been able to whip it out in no time!!!  14 hours later, I'm still not thrilled with the result, but I just can't bear to deal with it anymore, so I'm calling it done!!

The top photo is the front cover and the bottom photo is just one of the pages inside.  They are all pocket pages and I cut her tons of photo mats and tags to use inside.  Two pages have the city skyline, one has the Statue of Liberty, one has word art, etc.

Thanks for checking it out!
