sign up here to get a free mini album your choice for august

I will be giving away five minis for the month of aug. I have three picked out already. I need two more. So if you would like a chance just enter your idea and if I like it I will pick it and get ahold of you for your address. super simple, nothing to it. I just love giving out minis to all my blogging friends each week. I have lately having everyone enter a month ahead of time this gives me a chance to get them done, and have addresses ahead of time instead of waiting till I get mini done and no response then I have to have a drawing to give it away, so this is easier for me, but probably not so great for you since you have to wait. ha. Well if theres anyone out there that would like a free mini just enter your name here under comments and what your idea might be.

the last of the free minis for june and this belongs to Mo- melissa

melissa(mo) loves mushrooms and wanted a mushroom mini so here you go. this is the front.
