 Today is WOW Wednesday over at Cat's Creations Scrapbooks' blog and I wanted to share an album I made for a dear friend of ours who turned 90 years old back in December.  I used one of the BoBunny word albums that I had in my stash for quite some time.  The paper I used is some that Cat gave us in a goody bag at the retreat (thanks, Cat!) and I combined it with some SEI paper.
There were some little party hat cut-outs, so I couldn't resist putting one on her!  The flower is by Petaloo, the button and bling is by My Minds Eye, and the sticker is by Imaginesce.
On the right is one of the little accordion albums that Lance Anderson taught us to make using duct tape for the hinges.  Embellishments are by Sassafrass Lass and SEI.  
 This is a folder album I made using a "Coluzzle" template that I've had for years.  Really loved how it turned out.  More paper from SEI with punch-outs.
This is the folder album opened up.  It held lots of photos!
This a little cascading album I made after being inspired by the Heidi Swapp product.  I used Tim Holtz dies for the shaped pages.  LOVED how it all came together just the way I wanted it to.  Fun when that happens!  The paper is by SEI and American Crafts, the bling and button are by My Minds Eye, the flower is by Petaloo and the sticker flower is by Sassafrass Lass.

So, that's what a COMPLETED mini album looks like!!! IT's amazing and I feel a bit inspired!! :D Maybe I'll finish one of my mini's I've started... or I'll just drool over yours. Yeah, that's a good choice!

Great job and I could echo Shaunery's comment! I do need to complete at least one mini album and to think I purchased another one in the 75% off basket!!!! Fun fun!!!!
