We are excited to showcase a project from our design team again today.  Staci Jones is back today to share with us what she created using My Mind’s Eye Collectable – Memorable collection.

Next month is one of my favorite times of the year. No it is not my birthday or Christmas, but it is the scrapbookSTEALS.com 2013 Retreat!!! Can you tell that I might just be a little bit excited? :) If you have ever been to one, I know you share my excitement. If you haven’t been yet, you are missing out. They have awesome classes, awesome food, and an awesome venue. (And I might just have to add, awesome people who organize it! Love you Melodee and Brittany and miss you Kristy Lee!) It is always one of my favorite times of year and am so happy to be going to for the third time. But, do you want to know my favorite part of all? It is meeting all of the many wonderful scrappy friends that I have made through scrapbookSTEALS. The chance to meet so many of them is a dream come true. They are some of my best friends and have helped me through so much. I owe so much to scrapbookSTEALS for the wonderful friendships that they have helped cultivate.

Alright, enough of the mushy stuff. Because today’s steal of MME Memorable line from the Collectable collection is just plain awesome and I am overly excited for the retreat, I found that it was absolutely perfect to create an 8×8 mini album for the retreat. (Don’t tell anyone, but I have yet to scrapbook last year’s retreat. Shh.) I figured that If I do this now, there is no way I won’t scrap my pics and journal all the fun times.

Because I love Instagram and also more traditional picture sizes like 4×6, I made spots for both and left plenty of journaling space. The album has about 18 pages so I am just sharing with you some of my favorite features. To see the rest of the album, be sure to check out my blog at Scrapbooking is Cheaper Than Therapy.

I added a small 8×5 page in to hold a couple of 4×6′s.

I love this little accordion journaling area. It is a great way to include lots of journaling without taking up lots of space.

The pocket on the back cover is great to stick any extras for the album in and it is also perfect for any mementos, cards, extra pictures that just don’t fit.

Thanks for stopping by today! I can’t wait to see so many of you wonderful ladies next month. And if you missed out on snagging a ticket this year, be sure to snag one early for next year’s retreat!
