Le Romantique Mini Album Page & new toy!

Hi everyone! It's been awhile since I've worked on a project... although I have many 1/2 done! LOL! I just haven't been in that "scrappy" mood and the mojo is at an all-time "low' right now... maybe it's the summer-time blues... dunno! :-( But I really need to pick up the pace and get some projects completed before the kids start school... cuz once that happens, my scrappy time will really be scarce!! :-(

Anyhoo... I wanted to share this mini album page I created for a scrappy "friend". Another scrappy friend brought together a group of ladies on YouTube, including myself, to create a mini album for this "friend." Each lady was invited to create a page to put into this mini album. The rules were that it had to be 8x8 (REAL challenge for me since mini albums are typically 6x6 or smaller), the paper collection had to be from Graphic 45, one page had to have room for a photo and the opposite page had to have a pocket/tags, lots of room for journaling. So here is what I created. I'm also working on a pocket page that she could add in between the ladies 'pages that will have tons of room for journaling and photos... pics to come later on that. I still have to put together the YouTube vid I did of creating this page... but I probably won't get to the editing until later tomorrow or Monday, if time permits.

Also, super exciting.... hubs and I just invested in a DSLR camera... the Canon EOS Rebel T1i... it's one of the best rated SLR cameras out there and I've been having so much fun playing with it since we got it. Hopefully I'll be able to post some of the pics from the camera soon... I just haven't had time to play with the software yet and have NO idea how to edit. LOL!!!

Hope you are all having a great weekend! Thanks for checking in. :-)

Very beautiful Arlene. : ) Love all the detail you add to your pages. I just finished an 8 x 8 and it is different to work on but it gives more room for larger embellishments. Congrats on your new camera. Its a beauty. Have a great summer.

Great pages Arlene. I have a hard time "crafting" in the summer. I'm from the NE and warm weather is limited, so I want to be outside as much as possible. Your mojo will return, just enjoy your summer! Have fun with the new toy. Tina
