Silverwood lake mini *Upsy Daisy Designs*

I'm looking outside my window and it's beautiful out there. Sunny with clear blue skies and there's snow on the ground. The only bummer is....it's sunny but it's a chilling 12 degrees. How can that be? Oh one of the many things I still need to get use to with Colorado.

Anyways this weather is reminding me of the beautiful and "warmer" weather California offered. This made me think of a family camping trip we did at Silverwood Lake. Here's a mini album I made of the trip using the Avalanche paper line from Upsy Daisy Designs.

Silverwood Lake
PULLED OUT FOR PUBLICATION
Upsy Daisy Designs Avalanche paper has some great blocks for journaling and titles. I used one of these blocks as the foundation for the front of the book. I love the word "memories" on there and thought it was applicable for my theme.

PULLED OUT FOR PUBLICATION
I also used rubons and brads from Upsy Daisy Designs.

The construction of the mini is very simple. I cut out one 12x12 paper into 6x12 and folded it accordion style into 4x6". Then connected the two pieces to make one longer piece.

After that I laid my photos onto the divided blocks and then added my papers and embellishments.

I also used the "memories" stamp from "Note This". Also from Upsy Daisy Designs.

PULLED OUT FOR PUBLICATION
I typed up my journaling into strips and spread it around the whole mini.

I love this Vroom rubons.

I closed up the mini with a simple paper clip.
