Secret Garden Mini Book

I have such fun making new mini scrapbooks, but I think maybe this has been my favorite so far.  I love the springy paper and it went together so easily with all the beautiful embellishments, all I need to do is add my pictures, probably of my yard and flowers over the years.  Thank you to my local scrapbooking store "One Page at a Time" for providing me with such beautiful things to work with.  My friends Gina, Megan, Mel and Kayla are so helpful and I love being in their shop.
All the different spring colors are so yummy and the jewels on the ribbons that were added to the binding are so "blingy".
I love adding these little pockets to make even more space to journal and add pictures, just like it says, a
"secret" garden!!
I add little flowers and bling everywhere possible to give it the Ginger touch!!
Arent these little butterflies so cute?
There are nine pages to this book, I didn't have a pattern for the pages, just made up my own and made a template to use on future pages.  So easy and I love it that you can use the pockets to put all kinds of journaling and pictures or whatever in!
I have recently rearranged my craft studio and now I have stations to do each of my craft loves, one for computer work, one for sewing, and one for crafting.  I am loving it, still need to downsize some of the craft supplies that are out of date, but will get to it sometime later I hope.
Hope you have a beautiful weekend.  Im linking with Pink Saturday.

Hi Ginger - thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such kind words. Your little album is just amazing ~ I'm in the middle of one myself right now and yes, they are so much fun ~ and this collection of papers ~ one of my very favorite. You do beautiful work and I know you will find such joy in filling it up with special memories. Your studio is so neat ~ mine usually looks like a bomb went off in it. Have a wonderful week and Happy Pink Saturday to you! Hugs, Dru

I love your little scrapbooks! I get overwhelmed trying to decide what to do with big ones. What a terrific idea! I'm thinking a small book for my dear daughters birthday. She would love it! Thanks so much for sharing. said...
