November Counterfeit Kit Challenge member blog hop

Welcome again this month to the member Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog hop! Happy to see you here.

Hopefully, you've arrived here via newcomer Milica who I am sure delighted you with her pretty creations. If you've landed here directly, you can get to the beginning of the blog hop by heading over to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog.

This month, we've been challenged to create a little mini-album to share a bit of thankfulness. "So Thankful Mini Album:  Create a mini album sharing what you are thankful for!"

I don't make many mini-books anymore, mostly because I don't have space for them all rather than not liking making them but this is the second one I've made in the last month and that reminded me how much fun they can be.

This time, I kept it really simple - just 8 pages, minimal decorations and a few words per photo - the dimensions are 4" x 4". But it still captures a few of the people who have come to visit this year. Living away from my family and friends, I am so thankful that people still like to visit. And of course, my husband is the one person in my life I am most thankful for which is why he gets two pages!

This little book reminded me how quick and easy a mini-book can be and I bet I'll be trying this out again. Of course, uploading these photos, I've realised that I used the word "grateful" on all the journalling spots rather than "thankful" from the cover. I will no doubt change those out. Now that I've noticed it, that will drive me nuts!

Why not make your own thankful minibook using your Counterfeit Kit and then share will us over at this month's Mr Linky - we'd all love to see your creations.

Thanks for dropping by. Be sure to leave me a comment to let me know you were here. It's always great to hear from you. If you haven't visited everyone on the hop or you got lost along the way, here is the full list.



  1. Love the colours Lisa and a great way to show off your family :)

  2. Super wee book - nice to get a summary of your (summery) visitors too!

  3. Totally love the 'star' album look! THe pinks and yellows are wonderful colours together - it works well! Gorgeous pics too!

  4. Super cute, Lisa! Psst. . . might be easier to change the cover to grateful. I notice that type of stuff all the time on my projects too.

  5. Beautiful mini Lisa! I think the grateful in your journaling is fine but I also know what you mean :)

  6. This mini positively GLOWS - Maggie & memories...the perfect combo! Had to laugh that you will change out the journaling :~D

  7. I am lucky enough to always have lived close to family. It would be very hard for me to live as far away from family as you do. Your albums is a wonderful keepsake to keep those visits close at hand.

  8. So great that you have a mini of who came to visit you.

  9. Super cute album and love the chosen colors

  10. Maybe it would be easier to change the title? Such a cheerful group of pp.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
