A challenge was given to the DT gals of Bo Bunny: scraplift a project of another DT gal from previous posts. We had a blog hop recently and I fell in love with Irene's I Love You Mini-Album using Crazy Love (you can see her album HERE).

Irene's mini was a tough act to follow so I just made sure that I changed some bits and style to make it my own. My album is one page shorter than Irene's as I doubled the chipboard of my back cover - - works with me because of 2 reasons: 1) sturdier back cover; and 2) less papers and embellies needed as I have done 3 layouts with Crazy Love in the past, one of which is a double-pager (see my Crazy Love creations HERE) so I have used up most of my stash already.

Here is my album:

The moment I saw this humongous cute birdie, I knew it has to be used on a mini-album cover...

... along with this equally humongous bee!!!!!!!!!! ;o)

Irene's album has visible flowers - - I purposely did not use the coordinating Pink Parfait Petals to be different - - I made my own blooms using Crush Wrap and Noel Cranberry Rose Trims. I strategically placed them on the Y and O pages to achieve the front cover design.

The inside pages were kinda formulaic:

I think this is the fastest mini-album that I have made as I stuck on a simple design formula and I used 4 pictures only. Hhhhmmm, this reminded me that I should really do that mini with Olivia - - I already have the pictures and the journaling/concept, just gotta have to really sit down and get to it!!!! Watch out for it this Feb!!! (How time flies!!!!)

Anyways, I hope you likey the album as much as I (and my daughter!!!) do. ;o) Thanks so much for the inspiration Irene!!! I hope I did make you proud!!!! ;o) Thanks for looking people!!!!


P.S. Mahlin scraplifted my "Gotta Think Like the Boss" layout and I looovvveeee her take! You can view our lifts HERE.
