“I love mini diaries and one of my wishes was to have one for each season of the year so I started to select the papers I was going to use from my Graphic 45 Collections.

It is very difficult to choose them because they are so pretty and  I love them all!

I also made a basket to keep them together so I can see all the seasons in a single trip. I love to look at the covers that move me to each of them.” ~Marina Blaukitchen
