Weekend Whimsy -- I Flunk Video Making!!!!!

I tried -- over and over and over, and I tried again -- the picture was great, but I can't get sound!!  I think I am going to have to get Tonya Gibbs to come show me how to do a video!!

So here is the project I wanted to show you, and I know the pics are not very good, but they were a last resort about 10pm!

This is a mini album I made for a long time (since 1st grade!!) friend whose daughter recently got married.  (Audrey, if you see this, it is already mailed!!!)  The color scheme was red and black, so that is what I used for the album.  I used a Maya Road acrylic album -- I LOVE Maya Road Minis -- there are always lots of holes and nooks and crannies for ribbon, lace, and trinkets.  The book is REALLY chunky, but I love embellishments and I think Audrey will like it as well!!

Whole Mini -- CHUNKY!!!!!

Pages 1 & 2

Ashley carried red roses with one pink rose with a ladybug on it in memory of her grandmother, Audrey's mother, who I knew growing up.  Her nickname was Ladybug and her favorite flower was the pink rose.   I wanted to remember this sweet gesture in the album.

I really had fun making this -- it was good to have some mojo back!


  1. The pictures show the book really well and I love it!

  2. Very nice! I've never tried making a video. And Tonya is a bit too far to come over and show me how!

  3. OH - I LOVE how this mini turned out. SOOOO cute. And of course I will come help you figure out the video camera. Cindy - If I'm ever in Cali I will stop by and help you too. I have always dreams of a Psychomoms RV road show. How fun would that be!

  4. Such a cute mini Suzanne!! I love it!! :) And you'd have to swing by my house on your road trip Tonya, I could totally use the help too! LOL
