Monday Mini - Toddler Adventures

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

In this week's Monday Mini, I used a photo I had left from a 12 x 12 Scrapbooking Layout. It's a small photo of my granddaughter helping me in the garden. I think she was watching me weed and decided to give it a shot. 

I used some remaining die cuts I had lever over from the American Crafts set and I have used these in a previous layout here. The wheelbarrow and the journalling tag worked perfectly with the photo. As did the chipboard piece 'somewhere over the Rainbow'. (I can't recall what collection the rainbow chipboard piece is from).

I also found an older vellum floral die-cut and some punched flower shapes. A square piece of flowery cardstock. I  can't recall what collection the rainbow chipboard piece is from, however, it also matched very well.

This Monday Mini will be going into Layla's album. The hidden message behind the journalling tag is:

"Gardening is a creative outlet. (a little like crafting) You can design your garden, choose plants, and experiment with various layouts, colors, and arrangements, allowing your creative soul to shine. In the hustle and bustle of life, remember to steal moments and spend time in your garden. It's where you'll find solace, get grounded, and reconnect with what truly matters. Nature's unique beauty is a reminder to savor the simple joys".
