I'm so late getting this post up today, having a holiday on Monday always screws up my schedule plus I decided I needed to make a little mini album insert so that totally made me get everything done in a timely manner....Not!
Here's the full spread
The spread and insert ended up going very pink which I love! I posted a photo on Instagram because initially I had 46 photos I wanted in the weeks spread which I knew wasn't going to happen. I edited a lot out and ended up making the mini for our Fair photos. There's a lot of Studio Calico Atlantic in this spread and I used a ton of the May Project Life kit cards in the spread and in the mini.
The Mommy card above was supposed to be used for Mother's Day but since I did the layout I still had it. It was perfect for this little party Simone had for me.
Here is the right hand side. The Studio Calico neon sequins are addicting, I'm glad I got a few packs. I love having my typewriter up and running, I typed quite a bit this week.
I struggled for awhile for a plan for the little mini I wanted to make, especially when it came to size. I wanted to have lots of pages, not be thick and still maximize my 12x12 sheets of paper. I ended up with a 6x6 mini that was a lot thicker than I wanted but I love it. I cut 6 sheets down the middle horizontally. Some I wanted to use both pieces others I only used one half so I could save the rest for later. I then folded each piece in have horizontally again. I attached the sheets back to back only on one side if that makes sense.
Like I said above I used a lot of cards from the May Studio Calico kit, especially anything yellow. There were several this past month and they all seemed perfect for what I was doing. A few also came from a limited kit they sold last month too.

This is my new favorite photo. I held my breath when I took it because I could hear her but couldn't see her face because I was standing in a shadow. I clicked at exactly the right time and it wasn't blurry.

These are a close second for favorites. I snapped a similar shot last year at the same fair and hoped I could get a repeat shot. I got so lucky! The first half dozen times she went down the slide she was wearing her hat, these were at the end and I could see her face more. The peace signs at the bottom, classic!

All photos were taken with my iPhone 4s. They were edited with the Pic Tap Go app and some were given further edits with Rad Lab.
I saved my journaling for the back of the album. I also added a piece of the Bazzil plastic paper between the last two pages so I could punch holes and have it be part of the album.
