I heart pictures mini album

This last weekend I went on a major cleaning/organizing/purging binge. I am soo happy with my space right now. (Photos will be posted later.)

But one of the things I was most pleased with was the fact that I completely tackled my unfinished project box. It was really liberating. I threw out one project that had been completely and utterly frustrating me. I took another and ripped it apart to start over. I got some great direction on another project... And I completely finished another one.

Back in 2008 I got a lovely minibook kit/class from Kristina Contes. I got about half way through finishing it, and then for some reason (design team deadlines, I think) I put it away and forgot about it.

The book is basically an altered photo album. It was a blast to make (even though I had to finish it without the original instructions). But can I tell you how much I hate taking pictures of things in page protectors. OMG the glare. Anyway... here's the finished book.

It's so interesting to try and "go back" to a prior style.
Hope you liked it!

Happy Monday.

Love it! Your choice of papers and colours are always spot on, I love your style :) And you've inspored me to go back into my basket of unfinished minis and see what I can do! (I know for sure I want to finish my December Daily from last year...)
