Hello and welcome to my blog!

Halloween Blog Hop Oct. 21st is HERE

Welcome to the Mother Goose Blog Hop!
Day 3 Last Day
If you have come from Theresa's Blog you are on the right track!
This hop is so fun to be doing! I had so many ideas! This blog hop runs from Oct. 21st-Oct 23rd and some are posting one project for the hop but you are welcome to come back and hop along again with me throughout as I have a project to share with you for each day =D

Today's layout I have for you is my very first mini album EVER =D I had so much
fun with making son Jayden said "mommy don't you think you should stop working on it has too much stuff" lol!!! Yes...yes..he has a point. But I just love all the things to look at on mini albums that are so embellished =D 
I decided to make my mini album into a story book of the "Little Boy Blue." I found out I was having a hard time finding the actual story book of the story and not just the nursery rhyme. I found an on-line version but with no illustrations. I wanted to read the story to my  two little sons and I know how much they loved pictures in the book. So I am in the process (not done just yet) of creating paper piecings for pages in this album and write
out the story for them. Then they can keep this as a keepsake =D

I managed to get the first page 1-2 done =D the little cottage I cut using the Cricut My

 Community cartridge. I want to write the story in my own words for my son's and also use

 my own hand writing for their keepsake even though my handwriting is horrible  because I 

I think its more special for them if its in my own writing.

I will try to post more pictures today as I complete more pictures on the inside
of the book
