13 Days of Halloween: 6 {Autumn Mini-Album}

I have taken so many pictures this fall (literally hundreds) and wanted to compile them into a little album reflecting on all the "fun fall Friday's" with my parents and the wonderful walks in the woods that we have had. Then I saw the Ali just posted a Halloween mini-album on her blog and that gave me the kick start I needed. I purchased the album at Home Goods and added the front of a card from oneripepeach. Then using papers that I've had for a very long time and bits of this and that, I created the album below. It was fun to do the journaling and reflect on our wonderful Autumn season.









I have already enjoyed paging through it many times. I think I'll make a mini-album for each season and try to make the album while the season is in-process. I have found that leaves for fun reflection "in the moment" rather than in hind-sight.
How do you capture the seasonal memories?

Great idea doing one for each season. I sometimes find the mini books are easier to get updated than a big album

I'm hooked on mini-albums lately and this seasonal one is so cute - what a great idea! I just finished a mini album for my daughter for Christmas - about the Jonas Brothers! It made me feel 13 again.
