I posted the "how-to" for the backbone of this mini on the Inspiration Blog two Sundays ago. You can see the full post here, if you are so inclined. I added the photos and embellished it on Friday. I filled it with pictures of the lake behind my Dad's place. I had to opportunity to wander around there last Sunday while he and Lucas threw rocks in to it!

 I think this is the point at which I ran out of adhesive! So I had to get creative with the washi and a stapler!

It is a simple matchbox mini album, alternating pages between pattern paper and 4x6 photo protectors (American Crafts). This was a guinea pig for me in terms of measurements and construction, so I learned a lot - which just means I made loads of mistakes! The next one will go much more smoothly, and thankfully I have a bunch of page protectors left over to make that next one a reality.

Supply List: Stamps from Heidi Swapp's latest travel line. Bella Blvd. washi tape. My Mind's Eye label stickers.
