Scrapbook in a Box

I made this for my husband's niece from when we spent a day with her and her girls at Idlewild Park. If you're wondering why I don't call her MY niece, it's because she's about the same age as me and it feels weird! LOL She's more like a sister-in-law, I guess. We laugh about it all the time. Anyway, I wanted to make her a scrapbook remembering the day and I wanted it to be different, and I found some of these in the gallery at Splitcoast and thought it would be perfect. She and her girls LOVED it! I was so happy! She loved it so much that she asked me to come show her how to make one. We had a blast. I can't wait to see HER finished product. . .she didn't have the pictures yet, so I can't wait to see what all she puts in it! Hope you take pictures, Mindy, before you give it away! :) SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Rough Edges Alphabet, Papertray stamp set, Karen Foster snap stamps tiny casual; Ink- Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Basic Black; Paper- Amy Butler Sola Collection, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose; Accessories- organdy ribbon, scallop circle punch, small oval punch, Word Window punch, Making Memories brad, Prima flower.
