I was reading through my past AEzine (Ali Edwards) newsletters to just take a break from scrappin and to get some direction on which project to start next. Well, a couple weeks back Ali challenged us to scrap a LO using only our "essentials". I sat down and really thought about what my essentials are for making a LO (minus any tools): cardstock, pens, a stamp (and inks), and patterned paper. There is not much more that I would feel is "essential". The next day I was flipping through all my photos to be scrapped and ran across our "home" photos. They are photos I have been collecting in a pile since we moved in. They timeline our demolition, renovations and change of decorations over the last 6 years. They are photos that I know Sean would love to look at over and over (mainly because he did all the work). He did an AMAZING job on every project he tackled too. I remembered the challenge and thought these would be the perfect photos to make into a mini album using my "essentials". What a perfect Valentine gift for Sean too.
My friend Cathy C. gave me a 2 ringed mini album with black paper, and that is what I decided would be the perfect start of my Valentine's project.
Happy Valentines Day Sean.
