I am excited to say that I have submitted this layout for a possible design team assignment for Colorful Creations. I have never applied for a design team before, so I am a bit nervous and anxious all at the same time!!

I used this fantastic sketch supplied by Colorful Creations and a digital kit called At the Pumpkin Patch created by Jenn Barrette. I love this kit, it's just screams fall and all the joy that comes with that time of year!

Winter Mini

I love love love digital scrapbooking, it has opened up a whole new world to me. Unlike most scrappers, I don't have a dedicated space to work in. I am  usually at my dining room table trying to work on projects. I also run an in home daycare, so needless to say any unfinished projects need to be put away when I am done working on them. I had a hard time carving out enough time in my day to be worth getting everything out and in the end I found myself not scrapping because of it. So, I turned to digital scapping and I am completing pages and documenting our life.

With all that being said, I could never give up my love of paper and glue!! That's what creating is all about...the paper mess and sticky have to love it. :-) I have missed my paper and decided to try my hand at a little mini album. I used Kathy Orta's hidden binding system and watched tons of youtube videos and looked at a gazillion Pinterest ideas and came up with my own little book.

I didn't take a photo of each individual page, though I probably should have...but I wanted to give a general idea of what the book looked like. I've had these SEI papers laying around here for quite a few years. Seriously, they were too beautiful to use. Now on the cover I wanted the bird just a little more centered, but it was my first time making a cover, so I will try not to be too hard on my self.

I hope you enjoy it!
