Two blog hops....

Hi! I'm participating in two blog hops today.... Simply Scrapping Crafts and Ippity.

I committed to a Pay It Forward event awhile back and I have 3 people to forward a handmade item to. This will be one of them. I like making these Birthday Log books because beautiful double-sided patterned paper and a few stamps always make for a magical outcome. (My blog post on April 16th will lead you to one way of making these books... I changed it up a little today....)

Each page is presented below. Quickly though, just wanted to let you know that I used Ippity's Now and Always for the butterfly, Unity's Here's the Ticket for the months and Stampin Up's modern label stamp and modern label punch to frame the months, Brenda Walton's Celeste paper by K& Co and SU's Newsprint pack for the lined paper inserts.










Thanks for dropping by.... whichever fork in the road you choose to take (blog hops, that is...) I hope you enjoy yourself immensely...
*smile*
P.S. Tomorrow is What's on Tap Tuesday....
