another little something i've been wanting to do

Late last night, I decided to do some more scrapping. Originally, I wanted to do a single photo layout with my favorite picture from Jackson's Orchard:

But, then I opened my freshly organized drawer (I'll show pictures of my more organized scrap room, soon), and a mini chipboard album by Maya Road popped out at me.

I remembered this mini that Tina had created with the Looking Glass kit from Studio Calico.

So, I used some of her ideas and created this:

Supplies: Patterned Paper (Sassafras); Chipboard Album and Girl (Maya Road); Bling (KaiserCraft); Stickers (Jenni Bowlin, Scenic Route); Stamps (Ali Edwards, Studio Calico); Paint (Making Memories Buttercup, unknown); Glossy Accents; Pen (American Crafts); Stamping Ink (Stampin Up! Night of Navy and Creamy Caramel)
Just a couple notes: To get the smooth edges on the chipboard, I used the Basic Grey File Set. Also, if you're still interested in the Ali Edwards' Today You stamps, there a few left in the add-on section at Studio Calico. We will be happy to ship them with your December kit if you'd like to secure them, just email us for details at

I'm sitting here smiling from ear to ear, remembering how much fun we had. I really wish that we had a picture of all of us sitting at the picnic table eating lunch! We have to take care of that next year!
