Good Dreams Mini Album

I know this may seem kind of silly to some of you, but I know there are others out there like me who are always checking numbers and ranking and hits. Now, I'm certainly not OBSESSED with these things, but I do keep tabs on them...

When I started my blog, I registered with StampingTop50.com. I know that not every website or blog is registered with this site, so it's not completely accurate and to be honest, I'm not really sure I understand all the details of how they determine rankings...but I dreamed of being in the Top 100. When I started, it was in the 900's and I watched it slowly climb up in ranking. Every now in then it would make a big jump and occasionally, it would go back down. I've been going up and down between 106 and 101 for the last several weeks or so and was happily surprised when I checked this morning and found the magic number: 100! Woo hoo!

Here's a project for all of you with dreams and aspirations -- "It's Good to Dream"!

This little Mini Album is made up of two strips of cardstock: 3" x 9" and 3" x 10", each scored every 3". The extra 1" tab adhered behind one strip to make one long album. The panels are decorated with pieces from the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and I used the Razzle Dazzle stamp set to further decorate it.

The sentiment on the front is punched with the new Modern Label Punch. I was going to add brads on the side, but it was too overwhelmed. I like the way the simple holes mimic the look for a brad.

Supplies: Razzle Dazzle, Rich Razzleberry ink & cardstock, Crushed Curry ink & cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 1/4" Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon, Modern Label Punch, 1/16" Hole Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip
