I Count My Lucky Stars

We have a brand new Issue for you over at the Paper Issues blog today called Count Your Lucky Stars.  I decided to play along with the issue (which is our way of saying "challenge" for those who may not know, I was confused when I first heard of them too) and create a little mini album of our family Fall photo shoot.

Our sponsor for this issue is Lori Witlock who graciously offered those of us creating for this issue a cut file from the Silhouette store to work with.  I chose the accordion mini album file #34168 to create with.  Here is what the bare bones of the album looks like.

These little tiny accordion style pockets hold the inserts for the album.  I thought this design was a perfect one to use my brand new My Mind's Eye Record It Journal cards in.  The package comes with 104 cards, plenty enough to use in my Moments In Between album and in other random project such as this.  My embellishments came almost entirely from the Paper Issues March Swag bag.
Pg1 - bits and pieces all from the March Swag Bag with a Studio Calico cut file.
Pg1- back
Pg2 - I used one of the 4x6 MME cards to back the die cut "love"
Pg2 back - the reverse side of the 4x6 MME card
Pg3 - The "life" banner was from a full 3x12 Belle Blvd Trinket sheet that was included in the Swag Bag
Pg 3 - back
Pg4 - more embellies from the Swag Bag (except the laughter sticker from my stash)
Pg4 - back
Pg5 - this cute tag & holder was part of the mini album file
Pg5 - inside tag
Pg6 - The "moments" is actually printed right on the 2x3 card
Pg 6 back - I love that Pinkfresh puffy acrylic star from the Swag Bag
Pg7 - the flair button is from {Aflairforbuttons}
Pg7 - back
Pg8 & 9 - another {Aflairforbuttonsflair}
Last page - the alphas are from my stash
And this is what the album looks like with all the tabs in their pockets.
A sweet little album to store our fabulous Fall afternoon memories.  To see what the rest of the talent PI girls created for the Issue, please hop over to the Paper Issues Blog.
