First off – I have decided this year to try and enter some manufacturer challenges! Not being a traditional scrapbooker (12×12 is a REALLY big space!!)it’s awesome to find a manufacturer willing to open up the opportunity to a little interpretation.
The January challenge at Cosmo Cricket – was all about January! Of course we are in the middle of summer here so I thought I would brighten it up with a kinda fun beach-mini!
I feel a little guilty trying to brighten up the January blues – as I waited all day today for it to stop raining so I could take the pics of the album BUT all the pics inside were taken this month!
I have a tutorial as to how to make this mini here and it’s super easy!!
I made this mini for my mum who had to leave NZ early this month to go back to the dreary weather in the UK!
Here are a couple of close-ups of the mini-album..
This line from Cosmo Cricket is such a favorite of mine. I have also used it in the past for a funky retro project, so it’s not just suitable for child-related projects… Check out my card-set I made as a blog giveaway..
Thanks for your sweet comment and for your nomination. I just finished nominating you as well. Can you believe that the lovely folks at Cosmo Cricket are going to have to wade through all of those comments?
gosh i really really love your mini! so glad to find it through cosmo cricket! (:
