Give the Gift of Memories with Mini Scrapbooks by Bella Boutique! Review and Giveaway US 12/11

Ever since I was a teenager there's been this little part of me that wished I was the crafty type. Every girl and woman in my Church were. If it was crafty they could darn well do it. Not me though; I was just a writer. After years of spending time with the same girls and later the same women it dawned on me that I would never be on their level of craftiness but it didn't stop me from drooling all over the displays at my local craft store, regardless. While my Mom looked at all things craft (yep, she was one of those types too) I was usually found killing time in the Scrapbooking aisles where I dreamed of creating pages of fun, creative, photo collages of myself, family and friends.

Although my dreams of becoming a crafter have never been realized it hasn't stopped me from "oohing" and "ahhhing" over other peoples photo books, which is how I came to be in possession of this gorgeous Mini Scrapbook from Bella Boutique! This beautiful, one of a kind, memory book has a special place on my shelf these days and I even bought a special present for under the tree to help fill it up come Christmas morning!

Each Mini Scrapbook from Bella Boutique comes with 12 decorative pages and the front and back covers also include pockets in which to store loose pages, documents, etc. For the Mama who doesn't like to toss anything that my kids give me the pockets are a great addition!

Sarah, the creative mind behind Bella Boutique, makes each page by hand and has included liftable flaps on each page for journaling/documenting special occasions or for including stories with your pictures. As a writer and avid picture taker that was one of my very favorite features about the Mini Album. Often times I find that pictures just aren't enough and sometimes there's a story that needs to be told too.

Measuring 5 1/2" by 5" with a 1 3/4" wide spine and pages that measure 5x4 these miniature Scrapbooks by Bellaboutique are the perfect gift for the photographer or scrapbooker extraordinaire in your life this holiday season.

Bella Boutique has so many different options to choose from so you're sure to find something for everyone.

Another great feature that I wanted to mention was the fact that all of Bella Boutiques scrapbooks use 100% acid free materials so you never have to worry about your precious memories being corroded by harmful chemicals over time. I know it makes me feel so much more at ease to know my photos are safe once I settle them in my Mini Scrapbook.

Check out what Sarah has to say about her inspiration as well as what she has to offer her fans: 

"My store, BellaBoutique23, has many unique gifts including mini scrapbook albums for all occasions, ribbon bound card sets, pop up cards, tealight candle cards, and hair bobby pins.  The name of my shop was inspired by my sweet Golden Retriever Bella.  She is one of God's special creations and she along with God's nature, animals, flowers, all inspire my creative side. 

I love making handmade items and it has been a lifelong passion creating works of art. I have always enjoyed giving handmade gifts to friends and family.    I began scrapbooking in high school when my friend's mom opened a scrapbook store and it was then I began using my artistic gift to create cards and albums.

I chose to open this store to share my passion for handmade gifts and hopefully create something special that others will enjoy.  All the items in my shop are handmade and created by me.   My heart, love, and care go into each item I create, and I hope it becomes a treasure for you or whoever receives it. 

I would like to help people preserve memories and record life events with the albums I create. I also desire to offer unique gifts of cards and other special creations."
