This is Life

This year I am doing a mini album a month for all my favorite Instagram photos.  I love doing mini albums, they are so fun and quick to do.  This is the one for January - I made it a few months ago just haven't had a chance to post it here.

I decided every month I would use my favorite collection and for this month it was the Dear Lizzy Fifth and Frolic Collection, I really love the colors and patterns in this collection.

For the inside pages I just added patterned paper frames and a few embellishments, the photo below is of my 10 year old showing my Mom how to use her new Ipad Mini lol.

I added some of my favorite new things like this new photo app that makes your photos look like comic books.

I couldn't believe they made the boys practice soccer in the snow.  They were freezing!

I love the arrow embellishments in this collection!

My cat Buttons, she is so adorable :)

I love that these two are still such good friends.

We babysat Alison a few times and they brought us cake pops - yum!

My clean crafting space - it never looks like this :)

My oldest loves Rugby just look at the dirt all over and the bog smile.

Buttons - love them :)

My kids love going to get their hair cut at Sandra's - We have been friends for almost 14 years and I get a chance to hang out and chat. 

Magic the Gathering is big at our house and the boys couldn't wait to get the 2013 cards.

Well that was my month in a nut shell!  Thanks for stopping by.

That is totally adorable!
I did an instagram album using an Amy Tangerine day book and have yet to finish it!
It's not as cute as yours though.
