ETA: ohhh! Just found out that my album is being featured on Lori Whitlock's blog today! If you get the chance, I would love it if you would head on over there and tell her I sent you! Thanks so much!
Hello! Happy Friday :) This week went fast! Pretty excited to go to Pizza/Bingo night and my youngest kids' school tonight. My six year old is pumped to learn how to play bingo. She has been on such a Memory game kick so I am excited to introduce her to a new game!
Speaking of fun times with the kids---a few weeks ago my husband, sister and I took all of our kids to a local farm to pick apples. It was so much fun. We literally came home with 90 apples because we all wanted to pick them!
I created this little mini album of some of the pictures I took that day: I used two Silhouette files-apple and sentiment (both by Lori Whitlock) for the cover of the album. I used some white SRM number stickers to create the little date banner.
Here is a detail shot of the apple:
Page 1 of the album features another Silhouette file- tree (by Lori Whitlock). I layered the leaves so that they have some dimension. I folded the top layer so that half sticks out. I also used a white gel pen to add some veins in the leaves.
"Live Simply" is a SRM sticker (one of my favies!):
Page 2 features another Silhouette file by Lori Whitlock. Love this one. I stitched along the edges of the sentiment.
I added some Twinery ribbon after I finished the front and back pages so that I could layer it underneath the picture on the other side:
Page 3 mostly features a picture :) I love it. It is of my niece. I caught her in a moment when she was just staring at her apple she just picked. I added some SRM stickers on top of the picture:
Page 4 is a picture of my son, Ben (8.5). He really didn't want his picture taken so I had to take a few when he wasn't looking. I love this one! I used a fun leaf design from my Silhoutte (also by Lori Whitlock) to embellish this page. The sticker is another one from SRM stickers. "Good!" pretty much sums it up!
Page 5 is just a picture of one of the apple trees. Had to capture it with all the apples. Sentiments and dotted circle are both from SRM stickers:
Page 6 features my daughter, Cara (15). Love this one---because of her happy smile! I used a white SRM sticker "Smile" on the picture. The sticker is from Echo Park. I used some more Twinery ribbon along the top of this page:
Page 7 is a picture of my daughter Lauren (6) with her cousin Megan (3). They were so cute wandering around looking for apples they could reach. I used a SRM sticker "Happy" inside an Echo Park sticker and I think it fits the page well:
Page 8 is my daughter Lauren (6) picking an apple. Definitely a cutie pie:
All paper is by Echo Park paper.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend.
