Big Idea Festival Mini

For the past 2 weeks I've been playing along with the Big Idea Festival at Big Picture Classes and it's been great! The way it worked this year was that there were 12 teachers who each picked a word that meant something special to them. They then each created a layout about that word and videotaped a message for all of us to watch and get inspired! It definitely worked for me because I made a mini album with all 12 words and had a ton of fun with it. :) I thought it over for a while before deciding what my album would be about but in the end it came down to a handful of my favorite pictures that each hold a special place in my heart...



























Isn't it just fabulous?? I can't stop looking through it and neither can my girls, which is pretty cool in my book. ;) I can see more albums like this one in my future for sure...

Thank you for letting me share my album with you...I hope you like it. :) Thanks for stopping by today!
