So, on Saturday my online buddy Tina challenged a couple of ladies on Scraps of Color to make SOMETHING. The original request was for a scrapbook layout or two, but she bent the rules for me since I don't scrap. We were all supposed to report in around midnight with our finished projects. Well, I decided to go waaaay out on a limb and finish the CD case mini album I started a YEAR ago!

I ended up putting the cover on the front. It got a little dirty, so I used Mod Podge to seal it.
There a mini version of a portrait that Robert Jackson drew for me last year. The big version is AMAZINGLY detailed and looks just like the picture!

Since I'm not really a scrapper AND this needed to stay thin enough for the CD cover to close, there aren't any embellishments.

**CHALLENGES: Dream Valley Challenges - Summer, The Order of the Opus Gluei - Suntan, The Stamp Man - AG/Summer Colors

I'm going to take a little nap. When I get up, I'm going to update this post with some awesome cards I got from Shonda (my Secret Pal from last year), Kathi (she offered to send it after I told her it was awesome),  Sandi  (using one of my stamps!), and a super cute card from Tanya (Obsessed & Crazy Momma).

UPDATE!! These cards are currently living on my mantle...

Cute coffee sunburst card from Shonda!

I pinched the pic from Kathi's blog b/c I'm currently on "move everything" duty before the carpet man comes...
Seriously adorable card from Tanya! It has so many perfectly cut layers!

Sandi is an awesome ego booster! I sent her my first sketch (pre-editing even!), and she colored it up, put it in a challenge, and sent it to me! It looks great!


  1. Love this Trina! What a great design and beautiful photos :)

    Thank you for joining us at Opus Gluei :-)

  5. What an incredibly ingenious idea!
    It turned out beautifully and so glad you finally got it done.


  6. Oh, this is wonderful, it is making me itch to play with some paper and glue! This album is delightful;it's a great way to capture a trip and it's compact (no pun intended) enough to display as home decor as well as tuck in a bag to share with friends! The colors are wonderful, the layouts work great and it's a great interpretation of our Opus Gluei challenge, thank so much for sharing your creativity!

  7. Okay, I think I'm going to have to give the CD photo albume a try. Another great project.

  8. Lovely work. Definitely a keep sake!Thank you for joining us at Dream Valley challenges. Hugs. xx
