Sweet Summer Memories...

Hey there!
Happy Hip Hop Thursday!!
SUMMER has FINALLY arrived here...
and JUNE is almost OVER... LOL
I thought I better document our June activities
before I forgot what we did the past month...
I decided to make a quick little mini album that I can store or show off easily.
I am a huge fan of mini albums and LOVE to create them.
( I have a whole basket full in my kitchen for peeps to peruse
when they are here and we are cooking or visiting.)

I used the GORGEOUS JULY Kit of the Month
{Better Together}
Here is a SNEAK PEEK for you...
{I used the sentiment on one of my pages below}
and the newly released ADORABLE kit
 Sweet Summer Memories by Simple Stories

I printed all my photos in wallet size.
The pages are approx. 3X4 inches.
Some pages are paper, some cardstock and some chipboard.
I added stamped sentiments and images, printed quotes,
photos, fabric and ribbon tabs, & epoxy stickers.
I also did some machine sewing around the edges after distressing.
I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole in the corner of each page,
and threaded them on a blue ring. Easy Peasy!
If you click on my collage, it should pop up in a new window
so you can see the little pages in detail.

Thanks so much for stopping by...
make SURE you go over to the
if you have not..
Angela is having a GARAGE SALE!
