Mother and Daughter Mini Scrapbook Album

I'm in the process of cleaning out my garage and while looking through a few containers I found an unopened package of a Close To My Heart Mini Scrapbook Album and sticker embellishments.  I initially thought of selling them but decided to create a mini scrapbook album instead.

I don't like to scrapbook often because most times it takes me several hours to finish which I don't like.  I like to start something and be able to finish it and that's primarily the reason why I prefer to make handmade cards.  But I decided to work on it and surprisingly I finished within an hour or so. 

I usually feel I have to come up with something creative for my scrapbook page design but I decided to just wing it.  I just stuck the photos, stickers, designer papers, and embellishments without any real design concept.  I didn't try to think too hard or I would never finish.

I used Stampin Up designer papers and the stickers are by Close To My Heart.

The pictures are just a collection of photos that my daughter and I took this past year.  I didn't really think about what photos to use.  I just chose whatever photo was in one of the picture files I had.  Most of the pictures were grabbed from my Facebook profile.  It was much simpler than having to look through numerous photos I have on my computer.

As you can see, nothing special about my design layout.  I just sort of stuck the stickers on. 

This is my daughter's photo from her Facebook profile. . LOL!  I like this picture of her.
When I finally figure out what craft stuff to sell I'll let you all know.  Right now I'm looking through containers and sorting through them.  My goal is to sell at least 1/2 of all the craft stuff I own.  I hope I don't waiver from this goal. . .LOL!  I sometimes start getting second thoughts when I think of selling them.
Anyway, that's it for today.
