Mini-album and card

In my last post, I showed you a sneak peek of the mini-album I was working on. Well, it's finished!!! And I love how it turned out. All the pictures are from my niece Amilyn, 2,5 years old, either alone, or with one of my daughters. Unfortunately I didn't have any pictures of her with Henk or myself, so I definately have to go back to take those:-)
Each page has a picture on the left side and a poem on the right. This album was published in the latest Scrapbook Magazine (Dutch mag.) and my sweet sis Jeanet designed it. Most of the poems are from a fantastic site, Denny Davis. If you ever need quotes, poems, or page topper ideas, go and have a look there!
(You can click on each picture for a better view! The papers I used are by My Mind's Eye, Garden Party, Bazzill cardstock, buttons from stash and flowers unknown!)







I also made my second Christmas card..... lots and lots more to go:-) So I have to plan my time, cause there is another mini-album in the make!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Today I received some sad news, my dear "sis" Jeanet and her family had to say goodbye to her father in law. I wish them all lots of strength in the coming days and for the future and I'll be thinking of you all!

Hi Marjolein, thank you for taking time to stop by my blog :) im loving your little mini albums, great work. I am Irish :) but my name came from a film years and years ago as im named after my Godmother, and her parents went to see a movie before she was born and there was an American-Indian girl in the movie named Marlou and they loved the name so much they named their daughter Marlou and then I was named after her :) long story but thought you might have liked to have known bit about where it originated from :) take care :)
