May Madness!

I can't believe it's already May. Where did the time go?

We have a laundry list of things coming up in our house this month. Here's what's on the docket:

1. trip to NY + camp for the weekend
2. Ottawa Race Weekend- half marathon #2
3. My birthday- #28
4. Another new M. Ed course starting- #8
5. Starting report cards
6. National Scrapbooking Day
7. Taking a cake decorating class
8. Starting weekly ritual of swimming laps

In other news, I started work on our Montreal Mini Album. Here's a few snapshots of what's completed so far. Some of them are a bit fuzzy.

Here's the cover:


All the page inserts that I made out of pattern paper from leftover pieces of Studio Calico kits:

A double pager in progress:


Hopefully I'll have some free time this week to finish it off! I'm enjoying the small photos and the smaller canvas. I haven't made a mini-album in a while and I'm enjoying the process. More about that in a future post.

Happy Monday!
