12 Years Mini Album & a Giveaway!

Hey there, blog friends!  Holy cow....it's been quite a week!!  And let's just keep it at that....lol.  I teased an accordion mini album earlier this week that I made for the Glitz blog, and today it is up in its entirety!  So, I wanted to share it here as well!  And don't forget to read to the end of the post...I have a giveaway up for grabs!

I created this accordion mini album for my husband, as we celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary last weekend!  I included 13 photos of us…one from our wedding day, and 1 from each of the 12 years we’ve been married (which means there are 2 from 2002).  I wanted it to match the decor in our home so we could display it this year….so I used the 77 collection for my mini album!  My home is decorated in aqua, coral & burlap browns…so 77 was the perfect fit! 

This also fits A Blog Named Hero challenge #45 to create something other than a card!!  Such perfect timing for this challenge!! :)

To create the accordion album, cut a 12×12 sheet of white cardstock into three 4×12 strips.  Score each strip at 3 inch intervals.  Fold each strip into an accordion and then adhere them together into one long strip.  This gave me 10 pages one each side, which allowed for me to decorate it with scrapbooking supplies & my photos!

It was a lot of fun to look through 12 years of photographs and pick a favorite from each year.  I tried to use photos to capture all the different things that have been part of our life so far- Salt Lake City (the first place we lived together), Montana, vacations & travels, my brother’s high school football career, Fargo…a little bit of everything. My husband really liked his gift, and it gave us a moment to reflect on these past years.




Glitz Design has a lot of fun things & prizes going on this month!  Here are some important links!!
I hope that you enjoyed my sweet little mini album today!!  How about I do a little giveaway on this post as well?  If you would like to win a Glitz Design "77" 12x12 collection pack....just leave me a comment!!  Easy as pie!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Until later,
~L.
