Craft Room Clean Up File Folder Junk Journal

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week.  I've been doing a clean up of my craft room, going through multiple folders and boxes of bits and bobs I've squirreled away over the years.  Just as I was about to throw a whole bunch of it out, I also came across a manila file folder mini album I'd started years back and never finished.  I decided to finish the mini journal with some of my 'junk' and to do something I thought I'd never do, film a flip through video and post it on my YouTube channel :o0

Please excuse the mumbling and stumbling, first time I've ever made a video and this feeble attempt took about five tries, I finally gave up trying to correct all of my mistakes and posted it as is LOL!  Don't have any idea how all you talented folks make process videos or heaven forbid a live broadcast, I am in awe of your talents!

Thank you Mini Album Makers Challenge blog for choosing my file folder junk journal as one of your August 2018 Top Five! xo

Have a great day everyone and happy creating!
