Our Nest mini album

Today is Workers Day...and if you're a will know that it is National Scrapbookers Day.  I started a little mini album last night.  The album is designed by Sheila Rumney of The Scrappy Gourmet.  I just love how it turned out...and my fear of mini albums seem to be buried;-)

The Album is about OUR nest and our chicks and little chicklets:)
The Cover...a Maya Road chipboard album was used and the papers, alpha and stickers are all 7 Gypsies, the paper range is Venice.
The spine has a black tulle bow and a pretty dangle.
...a little nest and some feathers...

Page 17:  ...and life is not always just serious....
Page 18: ...our family gives us so much joy.
Page 19:  It has been a journey this past few months...but it has been good to see how this son of ours slowly returned to the man we hear him laugh and even sing is such a joy.  I just wish him so much  happiness....
Page 20:  Our nest is the place to bring the babies when their parents need a break...and we would have it no other way.
