A Day At The Lake

It's a bright & sunshiny day here in southern Ohio, so I thought I would share a bright & colorful mini album that I made this week! 

I got this beautiful Amy Tangerine Sketchbook paper & embellishments from It's Always Fabulous on Etsy. Sue ALWAYS has the brand new hot paper lines in stock! 

Here's a close up... you can see that I used some pretty stamps... they are from the Against The Grain stamp set by Sweet Stamp Shop

Of coarse, when I started this album, I didn't like it. So I kept adding more and more to it and it finally came together. Now I love it! 


I wanted to fill this album with fun photos, so as I was digging through my photo boxes, I found some pics from a few years ago that hadn't been scrapped yet. When my husband and I first started dating in 2010, we took a little day trip to the lake & had a picnic with my daughter. Of coarse, I snapped a few pics!

I used the Basically Bare Wonky Windows album. I love these albums, they are a great quality and always fun to fill with pics & doodle on! Especially the acrylic pages! Zig Painty FX Pens are great for that!

Here's another close up... I also used the Aarow Embellies by Basically Bare. I love the black chipboard, they are great for doodling with a white gel pen! 

Annnnd.... another close up! I love this pic of me & my little Reagan. I wish I could have kept her this young forever! They grow so fast, but at least we have photos for the memories! 

Make sure you stop by the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog today! We are teaming up with Want2Scrap (which I incorporated some of their bling throughout the album). We have fun giveaways! 

You can also win the "Against The Grain" stamp set that I used in my project! What are you waiting for? 

ALSO... I have a little giveaway to do here on my blog today! Sue from It's Always Fabulous is giving away 2 - 12x12 sheets of each paper in the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook Collection! All you have to do is comment here to win! Trust me, you want this paper! It's soooo pretty! 


Thanks for stopping by today!
