Spring mini album

Here is my Spring mini album :)

Here is the video :)

And for all those that don't enjoy my video's :(    I don't want you to be left out, so here are the photos of the whole book.
Another post full of pictures.
I tried to edit the photos so they would look as if you were looking at the open book, and the photos would be side by side, but they were getting cut off.  So here you go....

Can you see the cute tiny bird hiding amongst the flowers :)

Here is the inside front cover. I backed the stickers in card stock. I like contrast.

So there you have it, my finished Spring mini album.
I was gifted this mini kit from Sharon of NJGardengirl1961 on YouTube.
I did add some of my own supplies, but I mostly used what she gave me. I still have quite a few goodies left over from her kit :)

Onto My Day:
It was pretty much a nadda day......nadda thing happened ;)
It did take me many takes to get this video right, I won't even tell how many, its pathetic, lol.

I made up my own recipe tonight for dinner.
It was like a lasagna but all mixed together. Everyone liked it, so thats good.
I got the idea last night watching a Tim Horton's commercial for their new Beef Lasagna casserole.
Looked good so I thought I would try and recreate it. It was a hit, and it was easy....my kind of cooking ;)

Oh did you watch Biggest Loser, wow that was crazy.
A bunch of whinny contestants this season. And I wish Condra didn't make it to the finals, grrrrr. 

I hope you all had a creative Tuesday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Your album is beautiful! So what kind of pictures are you putting into it?

  2. OH, SO GORGEOUS!!!!!

  3. I can't imagine someone NOT liking your videos, they're great ;D Beautiful project too!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, the garden photo I posted yesterday was from this great shop called Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, TX. They sell all kinds of outdoor decor, gifts and seeds. The even have a butterfly exhibit there.

  4. You did such a beautiful job with your mini album! Oh, how I miss Tim Horton's. I am sorry, but Starbucks doesn't even come close!!!! Good job on the recreation of their meal.

  5. I've made "lazy lasagna" before. And I love that it's ingredients that I have around the house all the time but my weird kids wont eat anything with cheese in it unless it's the ungodly Kraft mac n' cheese or my broccoli and cavatelli (have you ever tried that, it's super easy) Tomorrow it's Arroz con pollo in the slow cooker. I'm all about the quick easy prepare and even easier clean up these days. My friend makes a "lazy perogie" that I love but I am half italian and half polish so it makes sense. Sorry i'm hungry LOL... I love love love the album. I love the little bird on the front it is so cute. I haven't watched the video yet so I can watch it in the morning and leave another really long winded comment there too. Oh and the supplies I "needed" I really didn't have and they were really cheap and they had nothing to do with scrapbooking supplies. You're REALLY curios now aren't you? ;)

  6. This minialbum is so gorgeous,and you did a really fabulous work.
    Love all the details, so much to see.
    Wish you a lovely day,hugs Merethe

  7. I'm still loving the mini, just finished watching it on yt and I of course pressed like but only because their ain't no stinking "love" button to push.
    I guess I should have said my Conda mantra a bit louder and longer because she still irritates me with her whiney attitude. Kim rocked it, and I'm glad she won the car.
    Take care and talk to you tomorrow.

  8. A stunning album, Tracy! I'm sure you will love adding to it this spring. Particularly like the tags for your journaling and the gorgeous cover!

  9. OMG, I didn't know you watched TBL too! We love that show! I wanted Jeremy to get to the finals! Conda won't do anything against Kim, I think. Although how much more weight can Kim lose? Good thing it is total weight loss for the season. Your mini is beautiful! Don't have time to watch the video know as we are headed out of the house. Maybe will watch in the car!

  10. Gorgeous album! I love all the laces you used and that paper is gorgeous. Great job! I usually watch BL but with the move, I haven't been watching much TV. I missed several weeks and just never caught up but now that they are in the finals, I may watch again. :)

  11. Oh wow, Tracy! That is beautiful. The little bird on the cover is the perfect little touch.

  12. Gorgeous!!!! Only you would love the graph paper for the straight journaling lines! Lol!!! Love how you colored in the flower with your Copics, I just would have thought it came that way. Also, the little birdie on the front is too adorable! I remember when you got this little package in the mail and how pretty those papers were. You did an awesome job! The binding is cool too, reminds me of a three ring binder! Your dinner sounds good :) We had grilled hot dogs and grilled corn on the cob. You know what that means? No dishes!! Lol!

  13. Your Spring mini turned out so nice,tfs

  14. Your mini albums are gorgeous as always!

  15. What a great project to get to work with and you sure made it beautiful! Gosh!

    Never heard of Tim Horton's, is that restaurant chain? Lasagna casserole...I make that too, but it comes from Hamburger Helper! ROFL!! I do add Parmesan and mozzarella cheese to it and some additional italian seasonings. I have to embellish everything. ;)

  16. Beautiful! I love the colors and flowers. Certainly made me feel springy!

    I saw a recipe for lasagna skillet today. Probably very similar!

  17. Wow, another beautiful mini Tracy! Sounds like my kind of cooking also. I love quick and easy :o) Hugs!

  18. Wow wow wow. This is just so pretty and look at all of the gorgeous details. You must've spent eons designing this...but it was worth it since it turned out magnificently.


  19. I love the video (I watched it last night, but then had a mini no-carb diet related freak out and forgot to comment!)


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
