I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

An All Occasion Mini

I attended a scrapbooking retreat this past week and got a few things completed that I wanted to get done.  Out of the 4 projects that I wanted to do, 2 of them were completed and one of them was half-way completed.  I even did a last minute card that was entered into one of the competitions.

Of the projects that I wanted to get done, was the All Occasion Mini that was done from a tutorial by Kathy Orta .  I used the Bella Amoire DCWV stack and I think it came out quite well.  Now to decide if I will keep this for myself or gift it.   I don't show the tags that were created for this mini, but in total, there are potentially 45 places for pictures and/or journaling.   I added a pocket on the inside and back covers, and included 6 small tags for journaling and pictures.
For the cover, I used some Recollections Flowers and bling.  The larger flower was Prima.  The Ribbon is from my stash which I purchase from a local fabric store called "SAS".  I love it.
