One can never have too many mini albums! They make a perfect gift for any occasion. Mini albums bring a smile to anyone’s face by sharing memories that have so much love and meaning. Not only will this be a fabulously warm and fuzzy gift, but they don’t have to take that much time to create. What an instant enjoyment for you, and especially the one receiving the album.
This incredible mini album was created by the talented Pam Bray. Click here and I will take you on over to her blog, Scrapbook Flair. Pam shares all of the materials she used to create her album, along with the pictures of the inside pages. This is one mini album you will want to take the time to create. It is absolutely adorable! Thank you, Pam, for sharing this wonderful mini album.

Summer is one of my very favorite times of the year. I love having flowers planted in my yard and my patio full of potted plants. I like to have different types of pots so it gives my patio some personality. I came upon these fun Rope Wrapped Terra Cotta pots, and “wow!” did they give some character to my patio. Do you have Terra Cotta pots sitting around in your garage? Pull them out because I know you will have a lot of fun creating these pots. These are also great for an outdoor table centerpiece!
Using a standard paint brush with your choice of paint, you can add a touch of color to the base of the rope wrapped pot. Just add a few colorful flowers and you will have created an easy and inexpensive project that will add a touch of texture and interest to your patio or table. Come with me over to House By Hoff where April will give you step-by-step instructions on making your own Terra Cotta Rope Wrapped pot!
