Practical Scrappers" Scrapping Your Stash" August Blog Hop

Welcome practical friends to another fun monthly blog hop!  I missed yas last month with how busy I've been, but I got a worthy project for you this month. Our Hop will run Friday 8-29 through 8-31 11:59pm CST, but you can always see our projects here inspiration:)
You should be arriving here from the very talented Suzanna Lee. If you are just arriving here then please head back to Practical Scrappers so you don't miss any of the inspiration along the way.
In case you get lost along the way here's the full hop...

My project this month came about from a customer who wanted a family album as a gift for her mother-in-law.  I spent a lot of time looking online for the right papers for this mini album.  I couldn't find anything that I was "feeling".  I got mad, shut the computer off and started digging....digging....and more digging (yes I have that much paper).  Then, low and behold, I found my perfect papers; already in hand; didn't cost me a penny, which makes my album pure profit :)--My Little Yellow Bicycle Collection Kit "Vintage Summer" that I won last year in May. The entire album was done with all LYB papers and embellishments (cardstock was all core'dinations). The Album itself was the LYB canvas 6x6 ring album.  I finished off the rings with some torn Americana theme fabrics.

Loved this Silhouette file that I found to use as a title

pocket to hold extra photos

did a bunch of pull outs for photos and journaling .

one of my favorite pages...the family tree shape made with wooden circular bookmarks that I cut down--journaling to be added to the sticks :)

another fun silhouette file with circular frames :)

my explosion box page, my way to add multiple photos for a small space since I can't do a double 12x12 spread ( there are 6 simlar photos on the fronts of the 4 extension pieces).

the end with some more space to hold photos.

Hope you enjoyed my mini hope on over the the amazing Lee-Anne!
