Cinnamon & Spice, Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice

I had a lot of fun making this album. As I've mentioned in earlier posts, I'm crazy about mini's - typically ones that are 6 x 6 inches and smaller. I think they're perfect for the busy mom that enjoys browsing through the memories preserved in a scrapbook but doesn't have the time or the interest to do it herself. We capture so much through our pictures, a child's personality, the look of surprise and total appreciation from a surprise birthday party recipient, a stolen glance between people in love or that great family vacation at the beach. For me, scrapbooking or "cropping" is my artistic, creative outlet. I might have trouble decorating my home, but I can sure pull together the right colors and patterns for a scrapbook, go figure! Enjoy the rest of the pics!

I lucked up and found these stitched letters to match the stitched cover! I'm also diggin' the tear bears, which are torn or fluffed from mulberry paper. You'll definitely be seeing more of these.
These are some of my first paper piecings. I used fabric and paper to make the flowers and different papers for the ladybug, too cute IMHO!

Another adorable tear bear and more fabric and paper piecings!

Don't ever grow up...I've often thought how my kids grow up too fast!
