Documenting Your Summer


**thank you for your kind words and support, wanted to let you know that Lily is doing very very well without her binky, back to napping and being a sweet little girl.**
This week, over on the Pebbles Inc. blog, we shared our projects for recording our summer time memories. There are fabulous lay outs and there is a t least one other mini album for you to check out.
As usual, I used my favorite ribbon. Those stripes, I love them! By the way, I will be blogging for May Arts in the near future! I am very excited to be teaming up with my sweet friend Lexi and a team of talented crafters.




I used paper and embellishments from the bright and cheerful Treehouse line. There is a complete list of my supplies here.


I experimented a bit with this album. after painting it white, I thought it was a bit bright so I misted all the chipboard pages with Tattered Angels. In the end, I think I liked it better without the mist.







I wanted to keep the pages simple. I figured this album would spend a lot of time in the girls' hands.



I am so pleased that Pebbles Inc. is making chipboard with designs that coordinate perfectly with the patterned paper. I love using it and I like the results.












Are you still there? Please come back tomorrow. Huge giveaway from Epiphany Crafts. Huge. 12 companies (Cosmo Cricket...Girls' Paperie...Jillibean Soup) plus tools from Epiphany Crafts, plus all 12 of the cards! It's all part of our very first blog hop! See you manana!

Hi Samantha, this album is adorable! Please could you tell a complete amateur, what is the little ring called which you use to hold the album together? Many thanks.
