as i mentioned previously, i created my first mini book with many thanks and a lot of inspiration from elise. i needed something to get me motivated, was fast to put together and easy to ship. after all, it was going to a.
i must say, these mini books are my new obsession. i'm seriously obsessed. once i had the pictures and supplies, the amount of time it actually took to put the book together was trivial...hours at most. i turned on a few episodes of glee and cut, taped & punched away.
i created this book as a 5x5. while my theme was nothing more than the month of october (it was a great month for us), i didn't generally stick with a color pattern. i tried to repeat a lot of the same techniques for a unified look and found that the photos did a great job tying in the colors. in the future i'll be sure to order more 5x7 photos- i love the full photo pages!
there are a lot of photos so i only included my favorites. to view the entire album, please view my flickr account.
