Muir Woods -- The Mini Album





Nothing like an overdue assignment to make you get photos printed! I just finished designing this mini album for my good friend Terri's scrapbook kit club, Color Me Miki...I ran to the nearest CVS drugstore yesterday and popped the memory card right into the machine, and voila...a few buttons later....PHOTOS. Easy......and I knew our recent photographs from our Thanksgiving Day hike at Muir Woods would go so well with this latest kit, Winter Whimsy. Terri's kits are packed...and I loved how versatile this one was...I easily used it for something not-so-Christmas.
I did use just a few things from my stash, silver acrylic paint...a few extra buttons (same colors you will receive in the kit), bookrings, and Vanilla Bean Raffle Tickets from my shop....and as you can see.........I machine stitched everything, including the photographs, to within an inch of it's life. Sewing makes me happy. My daughter says it was noisy--that oddly made me even happier. ;) Enjoy................I'll post a few more photographs later this evening.
