Challenge 27 Make a page that has a "list journal" on it.

What I'm thinking is to make a page that includes a list of something from your life, like 10 things I love, 5 things I can count on, etc, Any number, any list.  Have fun!

AND if you're wondering, I've had a very busy week and haven't worked on last week's challenge yet, I'll be doing it this week.  So hang in there!

Challenge 26 of the 52 Week Scrapbooking challenge: Use a whole collection of paper on one layout

Let me explain, have you ever purchased a complete line of paper from your favorite company?  Like Basic Grey, Graphic 45 or a myriad of other companies.  Well, this challenge is to make a page using all the papers in some way from that one collection on one page!  Have Fun!!

White on White Challenge Completed!

The background paper I used as the base was really old along with the corrugated cardstock too.  Flowers are Prima Mktg, the metal pieces are Close To My Heart and the pearl brads, I have no idea.  The doggie in the middle was rescued from the Illinois Doberman Rescue in April of 2010.  (No he's not a doberman, but they love all dogs).  His mother was a stray that was starving to death.  They rescued her off the street and found out she was pregnant.  This is one of her puppies, there are 3 other survivor puppies too.  Born on Valentines Day 2010!  All in good homes and the mommy too.  Happy ending or should I say beginning.

My Finished Challenged Page - Add a Mini-album to a page

I really enjoyed making this page.  I was totally inspired by the "blizzard" and the Bo Bunny papers. Plus, I love making mini's.

 I cut a hole where the mini comes through the protector so that anyone looking through my album can freely open it. 

Below is the mini opened up.  I printed my pics in the wallet size so they'd fit better.
Below is the tag from the pocket.  There is journaling on the reverse side.
Below is the tag from the above pocket, with journaling on the back.
Here's the last page.

Here it is in the protector...
And Again...
