SUMMER SCRAPBOOKING FUN!!

Hi all!! Well, another Monday come and gone....I am looking forward to this weekend since it is National Scrapbooking weekend and I am attending a fabulous crop at my LSS with some wonderful friends - I can't wait!! So, in anticipation of National Scrapbook Month (May!) I wanted to share the mini scrapbook I taught over the weekend - my gals loved it, we has so much fun putting this together!! It's a summer fun book, and could easily be used for a vacation weekend, time on the lake, a day at the beach, a picnic, whatever you want! I am going to give it to my daughter who wants to put some beach photos in it of her and her friends. It makes me happy that she likes it enough to want it for herself - put a smile right on my face! I used lots of bright, fun colors to emphasize the summer feel to this - and I also used quite a few of my Big Shot Dies as well. I tell ya, I love that machine, it is sooo much fun to play with!! So, here are the inside pages of the book, feel free to click on them if you want to see them up close and personal, lol!





Since there are so many details in this book, I am not going to post the recipe, but if you have any questions, please feel free to email me!! And, I am also selling this book as a kit - it will come to you all stamped and cute, you just need to assemble - if you are interested in purchasing, please email me and I will get one right out to you! I have of DT things to get done this morning so I will be a stampin away, which I am looking forward to!! And, I am REALLY looking forward to Friday when I can share my news - can't wait!!
