the abc's of me

When I design a project for the shop, I like to print it out for myself and give it a test drive. The abc's of me mini album was actually adapted from this often Pinned mini book

When I saw what a great idea that was, well, I had to make one for myself, too. I printed it out, embellished the cover and then it sat. And sat. My intent was to write in it on my 47th birthday {which was way back in March} but that didn't happen. So, on August 13th, I sat down at my craft desk and began writing. 

used these small white gift tags on my intro page

And writing. And thinking. And I skipped a few pages. And then I went back to them to finish up. And then when I looked at the pages I thought, hey, why not add some of the super cool washi tape I bought on Etsy! 

Here are just a few pages so that you'll know more than you ever wanted to know about Monika:

And I really like the look those little pieces of washi tape gave my pages.
Here's the All About Me mini book so you can capture your right now story.
