The Making of a mini

Happy Saturday everyone,
This post comes as a bit of suprise. I signed up just this week to join a swap on the Cricut message board. In this swap we are to make a mini scrapbook for a partner. I am new to mini's but could not be more excited to get this project underway.
Well... the following two mini's in the making were from a desire to play while in waiting of new supplies for my swap. Thus, I found myself digging into my stash of papers and products. The results thus far have me wanting for more :)
Carol... if your reading this.. please note these have no resemblance to the plans I have for your project. These were just something to do on this lovely Saturday.
And Although these are works in progress I could not resist the opportunity to share a few pics on my blog.

The first, a sweet pink....something. I dug out a K&Co paper pad ' Lovely ' that I purchased back around Valentines Day. I figured if these did not work out I could just toss...however I am beginning to love playing in the color pink!
You can't tell from my blog posts but pink is new for me and its like the sweet icing on a cake.

The second of the mini's in progress is one I thought I'd do for the many neglected photo's waiting to be scrapped of my dear Cody. I have many photos of frequent fishing trips with his dad and grandfather. This will allow me to share in his excitement of the 'BIG ONE'.

I should also mention that the book print flowers.. I received them from a online friend,(Jennifer Young)recently and oooOOohhh I can tell you that Im so going to need more.

Your comments are always cherrished! Huggs Ya'll :)
