Happy Thursday!!!

Hey everyone! 
Elizabeth here to show everyone what I recently created using a few things from Noel's shop.

I got it stuck in my head that I wanted to create something with the polaroid shape I recently downloaded for my Silhouette but wasn't sure that I just wanted to do a one page layout.

So what else could I do but a mini of course!

I did however want it to be more than just about the photos, so I took great inspiration from one of my scrapbooking idols.....Tina Aszmus!!  I've been in love with her "Currents" since she started them and thought that this would be the perfect idea to center my mini on.

I took goofy pictures of all four of us (myself, the hubs, and the kids) and had each one of us fill out our own currents.

Then I broke out a couple of my favorite goodies from the shop. Echo Park's "Note to Self" Paper Kit which I used for the patterned paper, stickers, and various embellies.

I knew I wanted to add some dimension so Tim Holtz's Grungeboard was the perfect choice.  I just love pulling out stuff that has been waiting to be used!

And voila!

I hope everyone enjoy's my new mini :)

LOVE this! I've got that shape too and have been kind of hoarding it (why? I have no idea). I love the idea of using it as a base for a mini.
