When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Mini Scrapbook Album

It's been quite awhile now since I last made a scrapbook page, let alone a scrapbook album.  Looking back couple years ago, I remember myself being the scrapbooker rather than a cardmaker.  But three years ago, I took stamping into a different level and that's when I became a serious cardmaker.  I don't know if it was good or bad.  Since then, I do scrapbook less and less, which I think was a sad matter.  I guess it's because of the instant gratification we got from making cards.  Normally, it will make me at least a day or two just to finish one 12X12 layout while I can finish at least three cards in one night. So today I told myself, enough excuses, I'm making a scrapbook project!

Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge for this week is to use Paper Doll Dress-Up or Everyday Paper Doll.  You should also incorporate heat or dry embossing in your project.  With this challenge, I took the chance to make a mini-album and I really like it! I was amazed that I was able to finish it within couple hours.
 I used this cowgirl image from Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge as focal point of the album cover.
 This is a 6X6 chipboard album.  Binded using Cinch Bindery Tool.

 I used Action Wobble for the cowgirl.  I'm loving my "wobbler".
So far this is the third project where I used the wobbler.
 Still amazed I was able to finish this mini-album in one sit.
 I heat embossed all the title page and I also used Spellbinder dies to cut and embossed the frames on the front.
 Hoping I could share with you the cowgirl moving because of the wobbler.
 A closer look on the cowgirl.
  Why a cowgirl?  We'll we're in Texas LOL!
Thanks for dropping by.  Hope I inspire you to do scrapbooking...
