work in progress: nyc mini album

OK, so I'm not really ready for snow, but it is time *finally* to complete an album for our NYC trip. In December, (yes I said December) Tony and I went to NYC just prior to Christmas to celebrate his fortieth birthday. It was a four day trip and we took lots of awesome pictures. We love to travel and I do an album for each of our vacations.

So what have I done so far? The pictures are chosen, cropped, and have been ordered from the Internet. I have gathered together all of my Christmas scrapbooking supplies (below).

I've chosen an album. Since this was just a four day trip I've decided to do a mini album. This album is by Seven Gypsies and it is a 5X7 size. I've chosen to orient the album so that the five inch sides are the top and bottom. I have started to layout the cover (below) although I am still not totally in love with it. Nothing is glued down, still playing.

I've only done one other mini album for my sister's bridal shower. I wasn't totally pleased with it. I had a hard time getting photos, embellishments, and journaling all in that little space. So before I get too far, any mini-album tips?

It's hard for me to work with mini albums too... I like the space of bigger ones better, because, like they old saying goes, the bigger, the better!!

I have no clue about mini albums. I've started two and never finished them. I'm still stuck on 12x12 pages... it's on my list of things to do though.
I can't wait to see your completed album, maybe it'll spur me to get back to mine.
