A Mini From Me?

Yup, yup you read it right! I finally conquered my fear on making mini albums! This must be the first time that I made a mini album not because I was forced to, hahaha (remember my She 6x6 album? hehehe)

Actually, I made this for Scrappinkids' Altered Challenge. The challenge was to make a a brag book on this theme: "10 Things I Love About You". Atleast 10 playing cards must be used on book and must be visible on the layouts. For this requirement, I had to be a little creative in coming up with a solution coz I didn't want to take our playing cards. How in the world will I use it after I have taken the kings, queens and the jacks? Hahaha! I was thinking of buying when I took notice of my son's chocolate boxes ... at the back of the boxes were cute playing cards that I could cut!!!

I used the 6x6 mini album that Joanne and April gave me two years ago!!! O, atleast di nasayang. Hahaha!

I doodled the frame on each page ... I must have been high on something while I was making this. Hahaha! I get to use my overly used Bam Pop papers, I still have robots and birds in parachutes though ... care for some? Hehehe. I'm too happy I get to finish this one even if I didn't get the chance to send this entry. I got this done at 2am of May 1 plus we didn't have internet connection!

Now that I did this ... I feel I can make more mini albums now. In fact, my second mini is almost done : )
