Artbooking in August #3--Mini-album

Welcome back to Artbooking in August Week #3!

If you are coming from Pam Ellison's blog you are on the right track.
Remember this is a circular blog hop and if you get lost or confused along the way, the list is posted on Adeline's blog here. 

Last week I shared cards and the week before that I shared a giftable item.  This week I'm sharing a mini-album made for my dear friend Laurie as a birthday gift.  I used some retired CTMH colors (Tropical Blue and Heavenly Blue) as I know that they are favorite colors for her.  Other papers used are the brand new Sarita and Gypsy.

My project is called a Travel Mini-Album and it is 8" x 8".  Lots of photos!

Thanks for looking at all these pages.  If you want to see the Artbooking pages I used read on.  If not, please go to Shalana Glass' blog now to continue with the blog hop.

I used pages 38 and 39 of the Artbooking Handbook for the pages and overlays.


I used page 40 for "My Favorite Photos" title.

I used page 42 for journaling page--overlay.

I used page 52 for the "paradise" title.

I used page 63 for filmstrip mat.

I used page 67 for the word "vacation".

I used page 78 for photo mats and "2 of a Kind" icon.

If you are with me this long thank you!  Please go visit Shalana Glass' blog for more great Artbooking ideas.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!  (Don't forget to stop by next week for the 4th week of Artbooking in August.)
