Well, I'm dusting off the cobwebs from around my blog corners so that I can start sharing with you all again. I've still been busy creating I've just been horrible about sharing on my own personal blog. You know how I love blogging. ;)
Today I have a special project I created for "Heart of a Gipssy soul". I received a beautiful birdhouse mini album kit full of fun papers and little trinkets. I was so excited to get started!
Unfortunately, like with mini albums in general I do have a tendency to freeze a bit when creating them. I don't know if it's the small workspace, the fact that mini's are suppose to have similar complimentary pages, or maybe that you really need to keep them flat with limited bulky type of details? I'm not sure what it is that scares me about getting started, but it did take me some time to get my feet wet. Once I finally figured what I was going to do though, the process started to take off...
I was inspired by my children. They are always making their own little paper books with the cutest little stories and illustrations. So I decide take my sons lead and create a little story about him and his sister. When Liberty was born he couldn't say her name correctly so he always called her "Birdie" so that is the theme of the title. The story itself is pretty lame, but both kids loved it so that's all that matters right? :)
|Remember me mentioning the "bulky" thing? Well this is too bulky, and I need to get bigger rings so this is just an example to show the pages all sitting together. The rest of the pics will just be the individual pages. :)|

I told you the story was lame but the kids loved the whimsical illustration...and the idea of them hanging out in birds nests. ;)
