January Mini Book done!

Well I've finished my first mini book for 2007.......yippee!!

It's a little 6" x 4" book and each the pages have been sandwiched together to make little tag pockets for extra photos and journalling.

My aim is to make one of these every month with a little review of all the things we have done throughout the month and journalling so when I eventually do larger scrap pages or albums in the future I'll have a good reference to look back.

I think ultimately I will never ever scrap all my pictures because I take hundreds every month so I guess this compensates for the ones that will be missed LOL!

























Ooh and Emily's challenge for the Art Journal this week is a bit tricky......use some ephemera from your week.

I think I may have earmarked something to use now that may be a little more interesting than a Tesco's receipt!!! so I'll get stuck into that asap.

That's it from me, must start work!!!!!!!!!!

As you may well know, I am the Minibook Pixie with mini madness!!!
I lurve the little book. I really must make more for me instead of just ones to give to others (they supply pics & money for embellies & I do the book)
