For this project, I decided to try to finish a minialbum, I've started last year for the Summer Fun Bloghop...  LOL talking about procrastinating LOL
My plan was to finish it for this hop, well, I just manage to finish the back-cover finally...
I saw this digital images for the Beach Crab set from this month's sponsor and decided to use it here:

I uploaded the images in Design Space and tried to print & cut, but couldn't get my explorer to collaborate and cut:

So, I ended up fussy cutting them and made a collage with the this printed Galveston page, a cardboard addition from Heart of Texas, and some cabochons from Connie's ebay store. I added some rock candy to the cardboard word and some glitter to the CDD cuts, as well as some distressing with goldrush CTMH ink:

The Port Bolivar lighthouse is also a cut from the Heart of Texas minialbum kit.

I added some images I'd bought too:

The crab is supposed to be holding the sign LOL. cute image

I hope you enjoyed this page and this fun hop...

 Up next is Michelle -

Have wonderful weekend,


  1. Your mini album is so adorable! Love it!!

  2. Great back cover for a mini album! Wonderful job!

  3. Such a fun project - I especially like the crab and sentiment - TFS!!

  4. All that fussy cutting, yikes. But it was so worth it as this turned out beautifully! I love the crab holding the sign...such a cute touch! Good luck on the challenges you entered. As always, it was a pleasure hopping with you!

  5. that cover is awesome Veronica!! You did a wonderful job!

  6. Very cute. I have UFO's that are forever in the works. And that's fine... The more we get done, the closer we are, right? Every little bit counts. I love what you've done. I had to calibrate my Explore 3 times before it worked. I also had to opt not to utilize wifi during that process and plug in my usb cable. Sometimes for EXTREMELY detailed cuts, I have to do that, too. Otherwise, I get failure after failure. Let me know if you need help. Id gladly do a phone call...

    1. Thank you Lisa. I really appreciate your offer. I had done the calibration before and it worked, but this time it didn't really work with my surface pro... I tried the iPad, but because it sent to print with the surface, so it literally freaked out... Lol. I had to finally give up. Lol. I might seek your help next time :-)) thanks for the offer.

  7. a delightful project! I love all the neat details!
