Grateful Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Member Blog Hop at CKCB.
You should have come over from the lovely Valerie.

The challenge was to make a Grateful Mini.  
I just LOVE making mini's,
but I usually need a reason to make one.

Well this challenge came at a great time,
because I was doing a swap through Monica's
The Homespun Heart.
And our topic this time was on being Grateful.

I had the sweetest swap partner I've ever gotten in a swap,
and so I was really looking forward to making her
a little something something.

She is a fellow scrapbooker and loves homemade lovelies. 
So I bought a little Maya Road mini,
and got to work.

Here is the cover.....
A Little Birdie Told me.....

to be.....
(a little heat embossed heart action right there) =)

A Banner, Thickers, Epoxy Heart and Flowers,
every day of the week!  =)
(And of course Maggie)

I used a Maggie Holmes 
yes my BFF =)
6x6 paper pad by Crate.

I used up a lot of older stash,
and also some envelopes and tags..... 

Oh these papers.....
they get me every time!  =)

I added lace, and tissue flowers.....
Some flair and heat embossed flower.....

Tags and Brads.....

I made sure she had plenty of spots for photos.....

And journaling.....

I was so very grateful to make a new friend.....
My Blessed swap partner Angie.

So grateful.

And this is the back inside cover.

This little mini was so fun to do.
I love pouring into a project like this.
My heart is so very full in these projects.
I truly am so grateful!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Now please go to the beautiful Cindy
and see what she has made.  

And just in case you get lost along the way:

Have a Blessed and Beautiful,
Krafty, Kind of Day ~~
