Welcome to The Twinery & Rubbernecker Stamps blog hop party!


You should have arrived here from the blog of the creatively talented


If not, head back to The Twinery blog so that you can start from the beginning and not miss commenting on each blog for your chance to win some fabulous prizes.

MY PROJECT


I'm excited to share with you the mini album page I created using the Dandelion Stem Set from Rubbernecker Stamps, enhanced with just a small touch of baker's twine in Shore from The Twinery. That lightest baby blue, which reminds me of a lovely Summer sky, just pops against the dandelion yellow cardstock.


I embossed the dandelions in white and in real life, they just make such a statement on the page. I used my own handwriting to write the sentiment, I think it's important to use my handwriting when creating layouts or mini books so that years from now, the kids will have that part of me.

Here's a larger view of the page in the mini album.


I added a silly photo of our girls taken last Saturday on a Teryx ride through our mountain property to Papa's cabin for our picnic lunch. You may notice that Victoria's hand is blurred and I'm okay with that. It keeps things real...life is not perfect and neither is every photo. I just embraced the blur, as this particular photo captures my wish for al three of my children, that they will always a joy for life.


I added a small Shore colored bracket shape to give even more prominence to my title which, I think, enhances the Shore baker's twine and the versatile dandelion stamp. I have a few more Summer mini album pages completed and I'll share those with you all soon.
