A mini about little me

Happy weekend! I have a new addiction! Mini albums! I finished another one last night, I just couldn't help it! A good way to use up some of my hoarded paper. I started with a base made from one sheet of a 12x12 page of patterned paper from the Basic Grey Curio Collection. So love this collection! Because I didn't think that this style works well with photos of my sweet girl, I used old photos of me for this album. Here it is:

Here comes Baby Vanessa:



I just cut rectangles from various papers from the 6x6 paper-pad and layered them. Then I added the photo on top. Very simple.



On some pages I added one of the beautiful stickers from the collection. Here comes my favorite photo. I scanned it to print it for my album. In real life it is about 11x14:



And the last page of the album:


I looked this serious very often. I guess I was thinking too much - I do this still!

Another look:




So much fun to make this! I already prepared about six more album bases from various patterned papers. Really addicting!

Have a beautiful weekend and thanks for visiting!

Hugs and Love,
Vanessa

What a cutie pie in all of your photos!! You are so lucky you have even baby photos! We lost so many good photos at the turn of the war in the 70's, it was impossible to retrieve them. The black and white photos are priceless! Beautifully done with the Curio pp!
