Blessings Mini Album By Yvonne Blair


 Hi everyone!  I hope you enjoyed the three day weekend.  I certainly did...accomplished so much and that always feels good.  I came up with this fun little mini that I am going to make for each one of the kiddos for Thanksgiving.  I thought it would be nice for them to have a little place to remember their blessings.
 First, I cut up the Bingo paper from Vintage Finds.  I cut it so there were two bingo cards on each cut piece.  Then I folded those in half.  
 Next I adhered those pieces back to back.  
Once you get all the folded pieces adhered together you can see it makes a very cute little mini. I then adhered a piece of the Vintage Finds trim to the outside back and front cover with tails long enough to tie.
 I then cut a piece of the music paper to adhere to the front of the book, added some bling, a layered frame and a chipboard element all from Vintage Finds to decorate the front.  
 I am excited to give these to my daughter and nephews on Thanksgiving.  Each page inside will have messages just for them as well as pictures of our family.  I will also leave places for them to write in some personal things that they are feeling grateful for or blessed with.  I think this will make a great reminder for them when they are older.  Something to look back and remember this specific Thanksgiving.  

I Hope you enjoyed this little mini...and maybe even make some for your family members! Have a great day!
