I am so very Thankful for all the things that God has blessed my life with. My family and all the time we get to spend together making memories is something I am so very Thankful for, so for my project I decided to create a fall mini album to document our time at Holland Farms. We went on a hayride and picked pumpkins out of a real pumpkin patch, not one of those stands they put up at random places. They also had a small field of Sunflowers which made for some cute photos! I have included photos but also a video so that you can see all the pockets and tags along with all the products I used.

I just loved your mini (and that you filmed outside!). Loved that you shared your real family photos with us, that's so special (you have such a beautiful family). It's so nice to see how the album actually looks with real photos in it! So many great ideas (I love the heavy distressing/inking on the mats) you have tucked in it!
