It's Blog Hop time!

It's Blog Hop time at Instyle Stamps! The theme this month was end of summer. Come and join us! If you leave a comment at the Instyle Stamps Blog and vote for your favorite project you could win a goodie bag worth $25 from Instyle Stamps. How great is that?

If you have been following the hop, you should have just left Tina's Blog, if not you could start from the beginning at the Instyle Stamps Blog.

Okay on with the project!
When I think end of summer I think back to school. My sister's kids started school this week and we have been taking lots of pictures so I made this mini album for them.

The pink bow represents my niece and the blue bow is for my nephew. Most of the paper I used for the mini is from October Afternoon. Kristina is one of my favorite images so I just had to use her for the hop. (She is available as a digi at the ISS store which you can find here) I used my cricut to cut out the fence and used cereal boxes for the pages instead of chipboard.

(Click on the pics for a better view)







I stamped some pages with sentiments and used rub ons on others. I also had some green lace that I used as grass. I enjoy making minis and I love how this one turned out. I think I'll ask my dad to help me make a display for this album. Thanks for stopping by!

Your next stop is Jan's Blog! Happy Hopping!

Image: Kristina by Instyle Stamps
Paper: DCWV Mariposa, October Afternoon
Misc: Prima pearls, Prima flowers, Queen & Co. pearls, Tim Holtz gear, vintage trinkets, lace and ribbon from stash,
