Time Machine Mini Book

The final National Scrapbook Day challenge at scrapbook.com was a weeklong "Time Machine" challenge.  We were asked to make a mini book that would serve as a time capsule to be 'opened' 10 years from now.  I started with the blank mini book that I made during the Kelly Purkey workshop in April.  

Here is the cover.  I used rub-ons to put the date on the butterfly.  It's hard to photograph because I embossed the butterfly, which looks pretty cool in real life.  

Here's the title page.  Just some quick stamping and my name.

Here's a page about us- our ages and a little bit about our family.

A page about the fourth member of the family, Trouble.

The next few pages talk about our neighborhood, daily routine, Trevor's school, annual vacations, and other things that I'm not going to post online for obvious reasons.
Here's a page about my blog, which has become a huge part of my life.

And finally, a totally random list of favorites.  

This was really fun to make, and it came together so quickly and easily.  It's going to be great fun to look back on over the years.  I'm thinking that I need to help Trevor make one for himself.... stay tuned!
