And Baby Makes 3- Mini Album

Gong Xi Fa Xi Cai! 恭喜发财!Blessed Chinese New Year!It's Chinese New Year over here in Singapore. It is a big event for the Chinese as they make preparations to welcome the new and exit the old. And it's HUGE in China. We used to have 10 days of holidays when we were located in Shanghai! And in the midst of Chinese New Year preparations, I had created this mini album over the weekend. It's madness with crowds everywhere. People were just buying and buying and even the supermarket ran short on shopping trolleys. I was contented to stay home and craft. ;-)

This is the front cover of the album, created using Echo Park papers and Cardstock stickers. It's for a girlfriend who is expecting her first baby and she is not into cutesy colors! I kept the album relatively simple because she is a fellow scrapper too and she journals a lot, so I wanted it flat so that it is easier for her to write and add her own pictures and embellishments.

Mini Albums are the best way to use up those papers I have been hoarding forever! Lols.
