CHA Las Vegas Mini Album

Hello! So sorry for my absence. It's just been a crazy week since the kids went back to school.  I've mostly been subbing at my old dental office as an assistant and looks like I will be there for the next couple of months.  I love being back at my old office but I do miss being home....especially having time to scrapbook!  I am even behind on blogging!  So, today I am sharing a mini album I created for Practical Scrappers last week. I used Maggie Holmes' 6x9 Mini Album Clipboard and pieces of Crate Paper's The Pier collection.  I decided to document my recent trip to Las Vegas for the summer CHA show.

I loved this mini book since it was released at the winter show!! I put off purchasing one until I had seen a few other designers' books and had to create one of my own! I purchased mine at my LSS

I used a lot of the pre-made pages that are included in the book such as this woodgrain background. I used my scallop heart punch at the bottom to create a window.  Loving all of the fun embellishments from The Pier, as well!

Yay for new friends, as well as catching up with old!  I was able to meet some FB friends in person...which is always great!  Made a lot of wonderful memories!
Love the ombre washi tape I used at the top of my page, as well as my new "amazing" stamp from Studio Calico.

This page is clear acetate...I used three 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 photos and added embellishments and journaling. Plus do you see one of the cute Maggie Holmes decorative pins? :)
Love the pre-made pinwheels! Adorable!

I created a flap with my two photos to hide an additional photo, plus journaling underneath. 

I really heart sequins right now! I use it on many of my projects. I created a pocket of sequins with vellum and my sewing machine. I also used one of the sentiments from the Technique Tuesday Studio AE stamp sents. 

Thanks for looking! And I hope to be back soon with more creations!! We are going to visit family for the long weekend but I may take something small to work on!  Have a great day!
