Hey, it's Carey here! I'm thrilled to participate in my first March Mini Madness! This week, each of us is sharing a mini album made using the same digital kit from Pixels and Company, and I'm loving the inspiration shared so far. I had the pleasure of working with The Good Stuff and The Good Stuff Add-Ons designed by Karla Dudley. These coordinating kits are so versatile - great for layouts of everyday photos, family, friends or even objects that catch your eye. Plus, they were created by one of my favorite designers, Karla Dudley. I especially love Karla's brushes, handwritten word art and, of course, flair buttons!
For my mini album, I wanted to capture 10 things about my son while he's 10 years old. I wasn't sure if I wanted to bind the pages together for an album, or if I wanted to add the pages to my Project Life album. The great things about digital scrapbooking is that I could create one album and print it twice to create both options!
Because I also wanted to use the pages in my Project Life album, my size choices were limited to 4" x 6" and 3" x 4" (really 2.88" x 4" in the Project Life brand pocket pages). I decided to go with 2.88" x 4" for the album pages.
For the cover page, I knew I had to use the wood grain paper from the kit! I also added the "10" die cut from another kit by Karla Dudley.
For the internal pages, I chose to follow a similar format for each page to provide cohesion to the album and to allow for quick assembly. I repeated the same background paper, used a single photo and paper strip, and then added washi tape, flair buttons and word strips to embellish each.

Project Life Insert
With ten pages and a cover, I decided Design F would be the perfect fit to use in my Project Life album.
The 4" x 6" slot will be for my title card, which I modified from the 3" x 4" version.
The remaining pages I kept at 2.88" x 4" to fill the remaining ten slots.
Interested in capturing similar information about a child or even yourself? Here's the list I used:
1. Favorite TV show
2. Favorite book
3. Last movie you saw in the theater
4. Favorite food
5. Favorite dessert
6. Favorite subject in school
7. Currently playing
8. Favorite toy
9. Best friends
10. Favorite things to say.
Quizzes like this are a great way to capture your or your loved one's interests right now and are fun to see progression over time when asked of children each year or at various milestones.
I love having one album two ways! This illustrates that no matter what your scrapbooking style or method is, you can have fun creating a mini album and incorporate it into your scrapbook library.
Thanks again to Pixels and Company for a great kit!
