Join me in a Mini Album weekly challenge!

My friend Danielle and I are doing a weekly challenge between us to create a mini album page each week. We will both have the same sketch to work with, and using currently available products, we are going to make a page. I think that it will be good to get caught up on some past photos, because, what scrapbooker doesn’t have some photos that they don’t need to get caught up on, right?

I was thinking that the mini albums allow you to get things scrapped, but you don’t have to spend a lot of time to be able to do it. You have space to do some journaling, add some photos, and you are good!

Today’s page doesn’t have any photos on it yet, but I am hoping to get them on there for next week’s post. (so, that might become a thing? We’ll see!)

So, here is today’s sketch.

I think it is designed more for an 8×10 page (which you could also do), but I went with a 6×8 page.

With four kids, I have a lot of birthdays each year! Not only my kids’ birthdays, but the birthdays of the kids in their classes! So, there can be a LOT of photos for those! So, I went with a birthday theme! This page can be used for either Evan or Audrey, as they both like these colors. I used papers from the Mix Ins paper packet and the Celebrate Today paper packet! The balloons (and string) I grabbed from my stash, but they are CTMH! The balloons are Lagoon, Avonlea Teal (it was a cardstock specific to that paper packet), and I believe Juniper. So, two of those colors are retired, but they worked so well! The cardstock mat in the back is Glacier, light side.

Don’t you just love the flip flaps on this page? Yes, the balloons are outside of the page protectors! I attached them with some glue dots. (I used 3×4 and 2×2 flip flaps)

I made multiple layers with the balloons, to add more depth to the whole balloon cluster! There is room for 5 photos on this one little 6×8 scrapbook page! And even room for journaling too!

I would love to see what you do with this sketch! Won’t you play along with us? Make sure to hop over to Danielle’s blog to see what she came up with for this page!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will take a look around! Let me know what you think!

    I love this! Colors & patterns are so soft but you could easily go with bright. Wish I was home to make right now. Eddie’s birthday is on Sun. I could be ready with a mini page for bday book.

    Great idea, I love the way you used the flip flaps to get so many pictures on, I look forward to seeing it with your pictures next week.
