3rd Anniversary Blog Hop!!!!

ustampbloghop12_450Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.
If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Tanya Boser's great sketch, wasn't that an AMAZING sketch and a great way to show it both for a girl and a boy?!   Tanya is a FABULOUS Designer and always shares something special for UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! events!!
If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FANTASTIC projects we have for you.
TINY and BIG are all the rage now and since it is National Scrapbooking Month, I couldn't keep myself from re-creating and sharing one of my favorite mini scrapbooks!

  It is a mini Matchbook style scrapbook!
It is such a wonderful way to tuck a small little keepsake in your purse or bag to keep the memory close at hand.  My kids also love them because they are designed around a Wallet sized photo.  They collect the pics from their friends at school and we turn it into an autograph/address book to keep in touch over the summer.

I love how you used the MDS to create the front page of your mini album. Great project!

What a great idea. Compact to take anywhere and show off.

I know a little boy who is going to freak out over this mini album. He loves things he can carry in his pocket, and he's totally into Cars right now. Thanks for sharing this idea.

Kris Sobolik said...

Very fun album, I love the matchbook idea.

Sandi said...

Kirsten you always come up with such fabulous ideas -- love the "matchbook" concept. Going to use this for an upcoming event -- thank you!!

So cute!

Deb B (Debadoo) said...

Love this idea, and the cars theme is just too cute. Really great for this to be sized for wallet photos. This would be a great way to do a grow up album with all 12 yrs of school photos (13 with K) The Sr or K photo could be the cover. Thanks for the chance to win some yummy ribbon!
