A "Little" Inspiration...

When I was asked to do a project for the Inspiration Post I knew what had to be done. I had to drag out all of my amazing dies and get busy on something that I enjoy...die cutting with my Quickutz Epic and making mini albums. Now, Quickutz was smart enough to put the two together for me and created the Santa's Workshop Limited Edition Set. I LOVE IT!

This set offers so many fun ways to create your own mini albums. Sizes, shapes, font, additional dies for decorating and even accessories! In my project I used the Sugarplum Mini Album and the accessories pages. These are so cute, stylish and not very time consuming...seriously...who has too much time right?

Another product that I find very inspiring right now are my TGF stamps. If you don't know the Twinkle Tots yet, please let me introduce you to, Max. He is near and dear to my heart. This little guy reminds me so much of my brother, John...it just makes my heart melt. He was the most adorable little boy with his big brown eyes and his chubby cheeks. He also loved to play Atari. Remember those? Asteroids, Space Invaders, Pac-Man...he even played Pong! Well, my little brother is a grown man now with a little boy of his own and he may get embarrassed if read this, but, I love him and I still love that little boy that used to set for endless hours in front of those video games.

So, now that I'm getting too sentimental and teary eyed, I'll show  you my project. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it. I have plans to send this little book of inspiration to a dear friend who has not one, but FOUR boys of her very own. I've set up four little pockets and photo frames and added space for her to put her own touches too. I hope she and her little ones will have fun flipping through this. Enjoy dear friend!
