Monochrome Mini Magic

Happy Week 23 Bloglanders

OK, maybe you are counting differently but what's important is that we are nearing the middle of 2016. Time to get going and get things done.

I just came back from a mini holiday / maxi weekend and decided to get my pictures and memorabilia into my Project Life album right away!

Most of my pictures went into 6x12 Project Life pockets but I decided to put the journalling, more pictures and memorabilia into a mini book (well sort of) and add it to my album. Like I did here.

I just cut an old school exercise book to 6x12 and sew it to a page protector.

Everything except the page protector is from my scrap stash - I even recycled a printed paper bag from my previous birthday's pressie.

Now just for a bit of decorating:

I decided to go for a monochrome look inspired by the SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge. Normally I'm not a natural kind of girl but because this was all about an outdoor, camping trip in the wild of Sunny SA, it worked perfectly.

Did you spot more of my "secret sewing"?

And it's in my 6x12 Project Life album:

I hope to have a video soon of all my holiday pictures. I'm sure you would love to page through it with me. In the mini book are loads of brochures, maps, notes and more pictures.  The maps and brochures are BIG and folds out or fit into glassine pockets that I've added to the inside pages.

That's it. Another project done and dusted!! Thanks for visiting my blog today and please come back to play. In the meantime, have FUN and craft on. I'll be back later this week to show my super sexy picnic basket. All handmade by ME and in a monochrome colour-scheme as well. Love it!!

PS. For those of you who want an inside peek, this is my VERY first attempt at a video. Please bear with me - I'm sure I'll improve with every one I make!!
