Random Memories... LESSology Challenge # 17 Fun with Envelopes...

I really want to cry!!!...
I really wish... I could shout and scream... I really wish I could RUN...
But I know for a fact it wouldn't help...
My issue is really getting OLD...I am so sick of it....
Wish I could make it disappear.... I pray I have the strength...I pray to be the bigger the person...

Anyway... enough of issues... 
today....I am sharing what I did for LESSology Challenge #17 ~ Fun with Envelopes...

I had so much fun creating this month's challenge...Way too much fun... !!!... I decided to upcycle my received envelopes..To begin...gently ...I slit one end of the envelope using my penknife ...and the other end I snipe it off to make it to 9"
 Here are the measurements
 To cover the white-ness I did lots of distressing on the edges...
 I  used Basic Grey Curio Collection to create my mini album ~ Random memories...How fun this is... using received envelopes.....[YAY]
I can't wait to see what everyone creates... so come on join US...
Thank you so much.. for all your love and sweet comments...
It means the world to me...hugs...xoxo

Beautiful mini album. Love the papers and embellishments. :)

I hope everything works itself out sweetie. I have a few "things" that have had me upset for a while. Just remember "What does not break you, makes you stronger"! :)

Really amazing mini-album Lynnda & all recycled - even more amazing!! Sorry for your issues - we all have them - some people are just too awful - just remember to water the flowers and not the weeds - I no longer try with problem people - I just leave them - they're a waste of time...
