Fall Mini Album

I have been SUPER busy lately... Babysitting my granddaughter, taking my girls to dance, high school football games for my son, started and finished a manicuring program and passed the State Board (YAAYYY!!), and of course, crafting!

I went to a scrapbook retreat in Murrieta called Scrap Diva Retreats that was just AMAZING!!! Not only did we scrap from the wee hours of the morning until way past sundown, but we also got some fun shopping in, too! You can join their Meet Up HERE and experience it for yourself!!

Scrapbook Corner opened just for us and gave us some REALLY good deals! Besides buying a Cricut Expression from none other than Cricut Dan, I also bought the new Mini Books cartridge to go with it!!

Here is my 1st project from the cart. It measures 8"x5"... Hang on, this is a long one!!

 As you can see, these next pages are layered in different sizes so I'm showing each turned page....
... and finally....
... with a tag inside....

Most of my book is pretty self-explanatory. I used my Cricut for some of the diecuts, the Autumn Melody Matstack from DCWV along with some various scraps of other DPs, solids, ribbon, stamps, ink and embellishments from my never-ending stash! I didn't have any journaling paper so I used index cards, inked them with a sponge dauber and traced the lines with a SU orange marker!

My goal is to use this for pictures from our Thanksgiving dinner at my mom's house... We'll see how far I get!!
