"Happy Kid" Mini Album

Yesterday I met with my friend Emily and we had fun talking and crafting.  One thing we talked about was how we need to use up what we have.  For example, all the paper scraps that we accumulate.  I took this as a challenge and only used scraps to embellish this mini album.

I bought the Create a Critter cartridge from Provo Craft several months ago and had not used it.  I decided to use it to cut several critters such as this cute dinosaur using only scraps of paper.

All the images on this cartridge are so cute.  Here I cut the happy flag.
The kit did come with a few embellishments like the "giggle" sticker, but the dragonfly is another critter I cut.
This cartridge has tons of cute images it was hard to choose, but as soon as I saw the turtle I knew it had to go on my mini album.
The same thing happened when I saw this cute little worm.  Isn't he adorable?
The mushroom, grass and "friends" couldn't be left behind.
"So Fun" that's what it felt like making this adorable mini album.
"Let's Play" and the balloons were super easy to cut and I added them to this page.
What kid doesn't love balloons!  This mini album will hopefully sell at our annual church craft fair.

And finally, the back cover.  I didn't want to do anything else here.  The album is held by two large rings and covered with red, green and yellow sheer ribbons.

I still have a few more kits that have been neglected for too long.  I'm trying to finish all of them to sell at our craft fair in November.

See you soon for some more crafting ideas.
