Simple Stories + Paper Bag = Summer Mini

Finally found some time to get my scrap on.  I made this little paper bag mini using Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Collection, a pieces of cardboard and some paper bags.  It came together quickly.  I used twine to bind the paper bag pages to the cardboard cover inside of stitching or binder rings like I usually do.  Once I get some photos in it, I plan on adding some more accent stickers and such.  Bring on the SUMMER!!!

I LOVE the crunchy goodness of a paper bag album.  Can't wait to fill this with photos.
Thanks for looking!!!

LegoLand Album..scrapping with my sunglasses on...

We took a trip to LegoLand this past March.  Had a blast!  Took a ton of this trip needed its own album.  They had this cute scrapbook kit in one of the gift I bought it.  I don't usually scrap (at least not anymore) with themed kits.  I literally have forgotten how to use bright paper with large pictures and bright stickers.  This was a huge challenge for me and almost required me to wear sunglasses.  I let the Lego kit kick my butt for a couple of days...and then I decided to just go for it.  To make it even more difficult, I opted to use an 8x8 album I already had on hand.  I had to strategically cut the 12x2 paper to stretch it out to last the entire album.  Although this is not my style of scrapping anymore, I am none the less happy with the outcome. more themed kits like this for me!

Thanks for looking!!!
