When Life Hands You Lemons...


MAKE LEMONADE!!!


I just love that quote! I know that life has it's ups and downs, so next time you are handed a lemon, or even a whole basket full of lemons... make lemonade! You should make good out of what you are given and make every day count, just like the quote says :-)

Today's Design Team project for Little Scraps of Heaven Designs was to make something using this quote. I used the LSHD Lemonade Stand Pattern Collection for this album. I have had this KI Memories paper sitting on my shelf for a few years and every summer I try to think of the perfect project to use it on, but my time just goes by too fast and I have to shelve it again! Not this summer! I finally came up with the perfect album for this paper!

I used mini gift bags that are 4.5 x 5 inches in size to make this album. I cut the handles off the side, and then found out they were made of rafia. AWESOME! I got the brilliant idea to fold the rafia and glue it to the left edge for a ruffled edge effect and I love how it turned out!

This is the first time I've ever made an album like this, so let me know what you all think about it!









You can find this album for purchase later today in my etsy shop.

Emily--this is beautiful as it is--I wouldn't want to add pictures--or I would pose all the pictures so it adds to the perfection, if possible. It is so delicious!!

You SINCERELY rock the mini album. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I second Krista's motion I'd totally have to compose the pictures around this album to make sure the matched beautifully.
