The blog hop starts at Mary's blog. If you would like to start at the beginning, click HERE. You should have arrived here from JANIS' blog. I know she has made a super cute mini!!! Janis is so talented!
Here are pictures of the mini album that I made. I purchased a mini album kit from Gabrielle Beck in 2009 off of her Etsy store and modifed it to fit my topic. It is so nice to have papers, embellishments, brads, buttons, and chipboard already selected and ready to go in one easy kit. Gabrielle's store is not on Etsy anymore but you can search "mini album kits" if you would like to find one to make.
Here is the mini album I made for this hop. I made this mini album as a gift to my son, Matt, who is currently serving in the U.S. Army. I will present this album as a gift to him when he returns.
