Joy's Life Mini Book Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Happy Sunday, and welcome to the Joy's Life Mini Book Blog Hop


You should have just come over from the fabulous Sarabeth's blog (Chronicles of Sarita)
If you just happened to stop by here today and have not seen this hop from the beginning, please join us in this super fun hop.  You can start right here at Joy's Life.com
You will find lots of great mini book inspiration!

I have to admit, I have never created a mini book/album before, so I was a bit scared to start this project. LOL!
There was A LOT of planning that went into this... definitely harder than I thought it would be. :)  I tell ya, I have  am in total awe of people who can create such beautiful mini's.  With that said, I THINK I still might try to do a few more in the future because I do think they are really fun. :)

So here is my first mini:

  I am still looking for the perfect pictures of my hubby and I to add to this album, so the pages are empty right now. :(


I know it's a bit short, but the great thing about this album is, I can add pages to it VERY easily. 


This stamp is from the Mother & Daughter stamp set:




This stamp is from Sweet Popsicle Puns:

This stamp is from Tag You're It - Set 1:



This sentiment stamp is from Lots of Pun and the heart image on the bag is from Tag You're It Set 1:

Now it wouldn't be as much fun without a little blog candy right??  


Just leave me a comment on today's post, and I will pick a winner on Friday! Although I would LOVE for you to be a follower of my blog, you don't need to follow to win. :)

Now, just head on over to Joy's Life.com and let Joy know what you thought about the hop today!!

  13. Lori,
    I can't believe this is your first mini book! WOW! It's so cute and sweet! This is nice for you and your husband to have. I know how hard it is to find the perfect pictures, I struggle with that too. You did a great job! Thanks for being part of the Mini Book Blog Hop!

  14. Well, it's certainly hard to believe this was your first mini! It's simply adorable and you did a fabulous job on it. I think it might be one of those chipboard types that you covered with design paper? I've only done one of those myself. But they are fun to make and a great way to preserve some memories!
