my first ever mini-album!

I have had a phobia about mini-albums. When I received my first DT album from MyAcrylicAlbums on Thursday I was so worried that I wasn't going to be able to do it. I was thinking that the owners made a mistake picking me for their team and they'd soon realize it. Well, after sitting here staring at the awesome album for a day I just decided to go for it and pray that it all went well. Much to my delight, it came along nicely and quickly and I actually had a great time putting it together! I thought it would take forever (which I think was about 50% of my fear), but really it was just a few hours and the details were the longest part. It was fun to work with a new size and carry a theme throughout something. I am thrilled with the end result and now have another scrappy goal to check off my list. *yay* Now I am eager for next months album! :) So, all of you out there reading this who share the same phobia I had, I challenge you to just go for it! You'll be pleasantly surprised. Pick some paper from your stash that you have been saving in hopes that the perfect use will come along and just dig in! If you decide to go for it, I'd love to see what you've done! Please leave me a comment and link it up. I will take a peek! Better yet, enter the MyAcrylicAlbums 'A New Beginning' February contest and get a chance to win a $25 gc!
