1st Mini Album for Cricut Mini Albums DT

My 1st Design Team project for Cricut Mini Albums was due today. My cousin's daughter's 3rd birthday is next weekend so I made this little album for her. It fits 4x6 photos without any cropping. I used my Gypsy and welded together the cupcake from Create-a-Critter, the 3 candle from Sweet Treats, and 2 rounded rectangles which i manipulated the sizes to what I needed. I welded the smaller rectangle off to the side so that when I bound the book together it did not take up any of the room that the pictures would use. I wanted to be able to use regular sized prints because her mother is not a scrapbooker and probably would not want to cut down her photos. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the number 3 and my Bind-it-all. If you get a chance, check out the other girls' projects for this challenge as well.

I have noticed that I am getting near the 100 followers mark on my blog and have decided that I want to give some blog candy away when I do hit 100. It amazes me that almost 100 of you check out my blog and what amazes me even more is that I did no campaigning to get followers- you all did it of your own free will. :) WOW! I want to say thank you for stopping by and it really does make my day when I get a comment or two.

Another thing that I wanted to address is the sweet ladies who have all given me blog awards... Sara Kate, Melanie, Nicole, Melissa, and Liz. I have added links to all of their blogs and will be posting the awards to my blog in a day or two. I am on VACATION which means I have some time for scrappin'. Yippee!
