Sweet Little Mini-Album

I was feeling a little crafty last night and decided to create a little mini album with the new Authentique "Renew" line available now at Paper Patch Crafts.  Oh, how I love this line of paper, and I think you would as well.  Look at how easy these items work together:
Using Spellbinders Lacy Circles, I cut the base of my album from chipboard.  I hear that people do this all the time and my experience wasn't great because I think my chipboard was a little too thick or I was doing something wrong.  But, luckily in this case, the chipboard was a thinner type and it worked out just fine.
This line of paper is so pretty with it's mint blue's and greens and a yellow.  Very fresh looking.  I added my own embellishments that I felt went along with it.

There are some fun puzzle piece elements that go along with the line that I think are very creative.

I plan on using some wallet sized photos of my grandkids to complete this album.  I was thinking that ones in black and white would look the best with this line.
This is the back cover of my album.
 I hope you enjoyed this album.  The thing I learned in making this album was that you really can make a mini album from any shape.  All you need is the imagination and let those creative juices flow.  If you liked my album, I hope you will leave me a comment and tell me about it.  Have a great day!
