Disney Mini (Not Minnie) Album

I finally finished it.  It only took a year.  This is why my New Year's Resolution was "no more mini albums."  But my new studio is going to help me work much faster, right? 

I took about a thousand pictures trying to get good ones, but I still don't feel like they came out very well.  I can only do so much with the lighting I have.  I just don't have a room in my house where light pours in.

The thing I love about this album, is it has pockets on every page.  They weren't so fun to cover with paper, but I love tags and this album is perfect for them.  Sadly, I do not think you can get them anymore.  I got this one from Rusty Pickle which was going out of business.

I found these cute journaling cards from KI Memories that were perfect for the colors in this album.

This page was made using mainly the Oliver and Olivia collection by Basic Grey papers.  I wish I could remember who makes the aqua blue letters because I really like them.  They are velvety.  And I could drape myself in velvet.  (Not really-that is a line from Seinfeld. And it is way too hot in Louisiana for any sort of velvet wearing.)

I also used some paper from the Urban Prairie collection.
This paper and the letter stickers were from the June Bug collection (my all-time favorite paper collection ever made.  It is double-sided which I also love).

Most of the ribbons were from the dollar bins at Michael's.

If you happen to go to Epcot Center at Disneyworld, make sure you get some of that delicious Norwegian rice pudding at Akersush.  Or the goat cheese that looked like chocolate.  (If you can't hear sarcasm over the internet, that is me being sarcastic.  If my husband doesn't like it, there is no way I am trying it and he did NOT like it.  Well...maybe he liked the goat cheese, but still, I am not trying it.)

All of the journaling stickers came with the Basic Grey paper collection.  Love that!!

The red glitter letters are by Making Memories and yes, they are real.  (My daughter asked that question about EVERYTHING she saw at Disney.)

I made a yo-yo flower and layered it between prima paper flowers, then stuck a flower pin (by K&Company) in it for the embellishment.

Thanks for looking!!
