I confess.

Last weekend, Shimelle Laine held a free mini-class on her site...wherein one was supposed to make a mini album of things one had to confess--silly, serious, whatever.

The album's pages were to be made from 4x6 or 5x7 photos, hole-punched and bound, which is an awesome idea for a mini book, but I just wasn't in the mood to take pictures. Plus, I was out of town that weekend.

But the idea stayed in my mind, and when I was in a scrapbook store on my out-of-town trip, I saw a rack full of these little photographic die cuts. And looking at them, many of the images spawned a reaction in my mind.

Hence my own little confession book (4x4"). I subtitled it "fifteen random secrets" but some of these confessions aren't really secrets. It's just that "secrets" was a word of the perfect length to make, with "random" and "fifteen," a perfect square subtitle block.

Here's a few of the pages. I'll bind them all together with jump rings once I get a chance to go pick some up, and them probably add some ribbon.

I love your "I want to be good at guitar but I don't want to practice" confession. Hmmm...I want to be slim and svelte but I don't want to give up Dunkin' Donuts or ice cream.

Those are great! I hope my broken leg isn't one of the bad memories of your wedding party! :P

I think I'm going to "borrow" the confession idea for my next blog.

Your title choice cracks me up..."it made a perfect square title block" FOGL!
It's a great album, and sometimes I wish you had a baby or two, too. :)
If I ever scrap again this will be one of my albums, but I don't know if I'll be brave enough to blog it!

Too cool. Who needs a already have it going on. :) What's the name of the font you used on your confessions? It's funky. I like it.
