Monday Mini - The King of Everything

Monday Mini "Toddler Adventures"

22 May 2023

Happy Monday everyone! 

Today, let's talk about a fun and creative way to start your week - scrapbooking Monday Mini's! 

If you're not familiar with the concept, a Monday mini is a small 6 x 6 scrapbook layout that captures a moment or memory:

It can be a memory from your previous week some older photos that you haven’t yet scrapped or a way to use up left over photos from a previous project. 

It's a great way to document your life in a manageable and easily achievable way and to use up your leftover papers and embellishments, cardstock, chipboard or flowers. Any goes really! 

One of the best things about scrapbooking Monday Mini's is that they don't have to be perfect. You can experiment with different techniques or just keep them very simple. The idea is to get some creative time in, have fun, and let your creativity flow! 

Each of my Monday mini layouts is like a little treasure chest of personal messages, each carefully crafted for one of my children or grandchildren, depending on the layout's theme and who it features. 

These messages will serve as lasting reminders of just how unique and wonderful they are. They contain the essence of life's most important lessons – to be joyful, to follow their hearts, and always strive to do the right thing. These layouts are not just snapshots of moments but little snippets of love and wisdom, waiting to offer guidance and encouragement whenever they may need it. They are a tangible expression of the boundless love and support that surround them, reminding them to navigate life with purpose, integrity, and an ever-present sense of joy.

This weeks Monday Mini

Hello everyone, I hope you all had an awesome start to the new week!  

It's really Tuesday!  The long weekend really did throw me out of whack and I didn't get to actually find the time to post the mini last night.  

This is this week's Monday Mini is a photo of Braedon (my son) taken in 2008. It's one of those photos you have left in your pile of photos from years gone by.  I already scrapped these photos in a 12 x 12 some years ago now. Will have to go and find the layout and add to this post. 

This mini is technically a hybrid - so not a true mini in my usual sense. I wanted to see how quickly I could digitally journal onto the mini.  It took me about 10 minutes to add the strips and the circle with the year '2008' on it. I really want to get into the habit of adding just a little bit of the story to the mini.  So while the the journalling has been added digitally, I will still need to print the strips and adhere them to the min.  

All leftovers were used in this mini, Including the background papers, die cut title and star as well as the metal paper clip star.  What do you think? How do you journal ..
