Summer Mini Album

Hello! I have a completed summer mini album to share with you today.

Before I get started, I just wanted to share this picture of my 5th Grader, Emily. She went back to school Monday and we are all trying to get back into a routine.

Okay, back to the album.

Close-up of the cover.

In June I created this fun summer activity jar and mini album for Emily when she completed 4th grade. We had fun completing these activities throughout the summer.

My album was made using the Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Collection Kit and a Tim Holtz 5x7 Grungeboard album.

All of my pictures are 2x3 in size. I printed them on 4x6 collages using

I also used some Ali Edwards summer related stamps made by Technique Tuesday.

I hope you enjoy looking at this album!
