Creating Keepsakes Special Issue - All About Albums

Creating Keepsakes just released their new special issue All About Albums. There is such a wide variety of ways to put an album of memories together and this issue is FULL of beautiful and inspiring albums.    I really enjoyed this issue and I always know it is a good issue when I can't wait to get to get to the computer to work.  That was certainly the case for this issue. 

My daughter Mia and I worked on a special project together that can be found in this album.  We created an entire album using the software from Blurb which made the project simple and fun.  Mia's album arrived here a few days ago and she LOVES it.  Here is the cover which you can see was a joint effort.

I am so pleased with this album and know that I need to work on similar projects with my other two children.  I know Mia will treasure this one always. It is full of my words and love for her.

This issue is now on sale.  You can get it here or at a store near you.  I hope it inspires you just as much as it inspired me.

Around the Web

I hope you all had a great weekend.  There are a number of things going on around the internet that I wanted to draw your attention to.

Early this year we lost a dear friend who was a pioneer in the digital scrapbooking world.  Pattie Knox passed away and left so many people with a huge hole in their heart.  Pattie was one of the funniest and kindest people that I have ever had the privilege of meeting.  She made a HUGE impact on the digital scrapbooking community through her products, teaching and passion for memory-keeping.  I was lucky to have Pattie as a friend and to teach alongside her.  I miss her dearly.  All of Pattie's products are for sale now through the end of July when they will be retired.   Her products can be found here.  I have loved working with Pattie's products.  In honor of Pattie, we are posting pages that use only Pattie's products.  I decided to do a summer list of all that we have been up to.  

All products are from Pattie Knox at Designer Digitals.
