Good Times Laughing Lola Mini Album

Hey everyone! I want to share a mini album I created with some of the cards from the awesome Laughing Lola Picture My Life kit from Close to my Heart. I used both the 4x6 as well as the 3x4 cards from the kit to create the album and I am totally in love with the result. So, if you have some of those cards left over from your kit, here's one fabulous way to use them up.

I used a variety of embellishments to decorate each of the pages but kept them to a minimum and fairly simple so there wouldn't be a lot of bulkiness. I still have to add a couple more photos, a bit of journaling and maybe some ribbon on the binding yet but it's basically done and I absolutely love it!

You may notice some 'selfies' - I dislike that term but for lack of a better one, I'll use it for now - going on in this album but I recently decided that I need to get in my memory keeping more. I spend so much time making sure my family members are in my albums that I forget to put myself in them by asking my family members to take snapshots of me! But since my family isn't by my side 24/7, I make sure to take 'selfies' whenever I feel the need.

One day in the future when my children, grandchildren and hopefully, my great grandchildren are looking through all the awesome albums I created during my lifetime, they will know something about me and know that I cared enough about them to document what was important to me as well as what life was like for me.

I hope you enjoy looking at my mini album as much as I enjoyed making it. Give me a shout if you'd like to purchase any of the awesomely fantastic Picture My Life kits or go here to purchase one or any other fabulous products from Close to my Heart and have them shipped directly to you.

Happy scrampin'!
