It NSD Challenge time over on the Cricut Circle Message Board and while the title says mini this challenge was full of fun.

The challenge is to make a one sheet mini album using at least on Cricut image cut.

My mini~


I used an older Amy Tangerine Collection for my album.

I love it’s bright, bold, happy colors.

The pages~


It has pockets!

Can you believe that?

Luckily this collection had fabric paper which was perfect for the covering the spine.

For a fabulous tutorial on how to make this one sheet pocket mini go here.

I used~

Welcome to Circleville National Scrapbooking Day Weekend!!

My challenge comes from watching the movie Pitch Perfect one too many times. He he.

As I think every song title would be perfect for a layout.

Seriously, when I come across the right picture you will see a “Will You Call My Name” layout.

I’m mainly stuck listening to the Frozen CD these days. Repeatedly.

However when I heard Matt Nathanson’s Kinks Shirt song earlier this week, my challenge and layout was set.

In stone.

My layout~


I altered the title for my girl in the pink shirt. He he.

And I had a bit of fun trying to make my rather lengthy title all fit, but I think it turned out just fine.

Now I want you to get busy and make your own Sing A Song project.

And maybe even win a prize!! Yippee!!
