Welcome from all the way down under :) I am so glad you could join us for the Graphic 45 and Want2Scrap blog hop! The hop kicked off earlier this week and runs until August 12th, 2011. So sorry if you visited earlier and this post wasn't up - not sure why blogger didn't do it as scheduled - I obviously didn't hit the right button lol.
Today from the Want2Scrap Team, we have their design team member Terre Fry and from Graphic 45 join Gloria and Nancy and myself for some inspiring projects!!!Make sure that you stop by each designers' blog, the Graphic 45 Blog and Want2Scrap blog for your chance to win a bunch of amazing goodies!

For the blog prize winner, we will pick a random person who comments on one of the designers' blog posts. For the Facebook prize winner, we will pick a random person who leaves a comment on our Facebook fanpage.
Right now onto my project for today!!!!!!!! A few weeks ago I went to an awesome retreat known as Camp Mojo and had a ball!!! So what better to scrap than a weekend away with good friends :) I always grumble a bit about mini albums as I don't like the getting it all together ready to scrap bit - but print out a bunch of photo's - cover each page with different paper and start at the beginning!!!!!! I ALWAYS fall in love with it as I go and by the end of it - discover it is so worth the effort and love how mini albums turn out :)
Graphic 45's Le Cirque papers were just perfect for this album and if you take an extra close look you may discover another one of my projects in the making... ;)

Hints / Tips
• To add extra pages into album trace around scalloped chipboard page onto cardstock/transparency and cut out. Page maybe folded in half and stuck together to give a different size page in album.
• Chipboard pages were traced around onto G45 paper then cut out and adhered using Mod Podge Matt. Ink all edges once dry to give a professional finish
