Lasting Memories Challenge #45 with Blog Candy!

I am so happy to be guest designer at Lasting Memories this month! (Scroll to the end to find out about the blog candy!) The challenge this week is to create a mini album with a summer theme.  I think mini albums are so much fun!  It was my sister's birthday yesterday, so I made this a few days ago for her.  With all the baseball that goes on in their house during the summer (well, all year!), I thought this would be perfect for her.  I also liked being able to use Minnesota Twins colors!



I have shown you only one inside page because I made them all the same.  I wanted to leave a lot of room for writing and for pictures.  This little book has 18 pages to fill.  All items used are CTMH except for the chipboard covers.

You can make any kind of mini album that you'd like, and be sure to link it up at Lasting Memories so that you are eligible for the blog candy.    As a bonus, I am also offering blog candy and here are my rules:
  • When you've created your mini album for Lasting Memories, then come back over here and leave a comment.
  • I will draw a random winner on Sunday, July 10th.
Are you wondering what the lucky winner will receive?  I am giving away a $25 gift certificate to my Close To My Heart website!  Yippee!!  It's always fun to pick out your own product!  I am going to love seeing what you create to store your summer memories!!
