I'm Excited about My Mini

It's been so.. so... so... very long since I made a mini-album. I can't tell you how much I miss doing it.  It is always an intense activity: intensely time consuming, intensely enjoyable, intensely challenging.  Finally, I put the WIP April kit to a new Maya Road album and made this. 

This Hometown Summer line by Collage Press Studio for Pink Paislee sent my heart into all kinds of irregular arrhythmia when I first saw a sneak peak.  For a period of two weeks, I stopped by Archiver's every day to check if they received their stock.  I was beyond thrill that Trish put it in the WIP April kit.  (I also ordered a lot of extra from 2peas, hee hee.)  Seriously, this line is cuteness redefined, I adore adore adore it!!! 

I decided to make this mini using photos from our cruise.  It felt so good to put this new mini up on my mantle, like I said, it's been a long time...  Gosh, I had so much fun making this.  I went all out, sanded all the pages and inked the edges, what?!  lol...  My younger one says "aww... cute..." every time she sees it, lol.  That's right, baby, just look, no touch, coz that's the only way it'll continue to stay cute! LOL.   My gosh, this was fun to make, have I mentioned how much I love making mini's yet? lol. 

Happy May Day everyone!
