The Beginning of a Mini Album

I'm going to start on a Spring/Easter mini today. Usually when I get an idea for an album, it starts with a single stamp or a piece/collection of paper. My inspiration this time was the Graphic 45 collection, "Once Upon a Springtime". Of course, I know I will probably end up putting several other lines in as well. Once I had the paper, I went through my stash for items that would coordinate. This morning I went to Hobby Lobby to pick up several things shown below. This is just what I am starting with. Some things from the pile will never make it into the album, and some things will be added as the project takes shape.
I'm really excited! The last several projects I did were in dark, somber colors. Now I get to work with lighter (dare I say "girlie"?) colors!

I just picked up that Graphic 45 paper in the 8x8 pack (that is all they had on our trip). Funny thing is I also picked up that bird nest stamp, teehee.

I just discovered your work and love it! Watched a couple of your videos then visited your blog and happened to notice that you are 'just down the road' from me (I'm in North Meck).....way cool!

Can't wait to see what your creative mind comes up for your spring mini! BTW...like the birds clear stamps....seems like Hobby Lobby needs a visit from me.
