Find Joy Every Day mini album

ETA: ohhh! Just found out that my album is being featured on Lori Whitlock's blog today! If you get the chance, I would love it if you would head on over there and tell her I sent you! Thanks so much!

Hello! Happy Friday :) This week went fast! Pretty excited to go to Pizza/Bingo night and my youngest kids' school tonight. My six year old is pumped to learn how to play bingo. She has been on such a Memory game kick so I am excited to introduce her to a new game!

Speaking of fun times with the kids---a few weeks ago my husband, sister and I took all of our kids to a local farm to pick apples. It was so much fun. We literally came home with 90 apples because we all wanted to pick them!
I created this little mini album of some of the pictures I took that day: I used two Silhouette files-apple and sentiment (both by Lori Whitlock) for the cover of the album. I used some white SRM number stickers to create the little date banner.

Here is a detail shot of the apple:
Page 1 of the album features another Silhouette file- tree (by Lori Whitlock). I layered the leaves so that they have some dimension. I folded the top layer so that half sticks out. I also used a white gel pen to add some veins in the leaves.
"Live Simply" is a SRM sticker (one of my favies!):
Page 2 features another Silhouette file by Lori Whitlock. Love this one. I stitched along the edges of the sentiment.
I added some Twinery ribbon after I finished the front and back pages so that I could layer it underneath the picture on the other side:
Page 3 mostly features a picture :) I love it. It is of my niece. I caught her in a moment when she was just staring at her apple she just picked. I added some SRM stickers on top of the picture:

Page 4 is a picture of my son, Ben (8.5). He really didn't want his picture taken so I had to take a few when he wasn't looking. I love this one! I used a fun leaf design from my Silhoutte (also by Lori Whitlock) to embellish this page. The sticker is another one from SRM stickers. "Good!" pretty much sums it up!
Page 5 is just a picture of one of the apple trees. Had to capture it with all the apples. Sentiments and dotted circle are both from SRM stickers:
Page 6 features my daughter, Cara (15). Love this one---because of her happy smile! I used a white SRM sticker "Smile" on the picture. The sticker is from Echo Park. I used some more Twinery ribbon along the top of this page:
Page 7 is a picture of my daughter Lauren (6) with her cousin Megan (3). They were so cute wandering around looking for apples they could reach. I used a SRM sticker "Happy" inside an Echo Park sticker and I think it fits the page well:
Page 8 is my daughter Lauren (6) picking an apple. Definitely a cutie pie:
All paper is by Echo Park paper.



Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend.

Phenomenal! I absolutely love it! Looks like you had a great time. I love mini albums (and have a lot) but never seem to get around to putting them together. We are lucky enough to have an apple tree in our yard and have been sharing our bounty because there are too many for just the two of us!
