My First Mini Album
So.... would recommend that you get a glass/cup of your favorite drink as this post will be long... much longer than any that i have posted yet (given that there's only 13 before this)... i'm even writing this with a glass of wine in hand!
Just be me... funny how i started out tracing the shape to cut for the album and as i was getting ready to paste the first page, i couldn't bring myself to hide away the adorable pattern - using lily bee: three little bird collection - so the pages are not glued onto the chipboard pages as usually done... instead utilized both sides or used my quickly expanding stash of hambly overlays...
and yes... that's what i have done thus far and hopefully there will be more to add to the list... :)

Here are two more layouts that i manage to scrap and finish... the first is inspired by anne-marie challenge for MWL... tulips and tulips and tulips, i have never seen so many and in so many colors and variations... these were taken at the keukenhof in the netherlands.celine navarro's class... total of 3 layouts were created (well actually started) and here's the second one that i finally finished.... hehheeee... one of my most memorable moments... visiting chateau mouton rothschild and being able to do one of their best vintage tasting... don't think i would be able to afford a bottle - i still remembered that their 2000 vintage was over 800 euros....
and in my usual blog hopping... i was just taken away by the posting on the american craft blog today... a must share... for those who love simplicity and beauty... this is a must see!
also want to say a big thanks to everyone for visiting and leaving love notes behind... hope these are an inspiration... thanks!!!
