This next scrapbook page is one of a double page spread that I'm making for my daughter, Kim's, 12 x 12 scrapbook. She can add the pictures of her friends later and add it to her book. This is a kit that I got at Scrappin Inn Jammies at Pigeon Lake. There are 4 layouts (2 double page spreads) so once I get the others done, I will post pictures.....I am also busy getting all the cards done that were leftovers from previous Stamp-A-Stacks so I can sell them. There is a Ladies Night Out I'm attending on Friday night and then I'll be selling sets of cards at Pigeon Lake throughout the summer months....fun!!!
Take care everyone, and I'll be back with more scrappin' pages hopefully within the next couple days!! Possibly some stamping too :)
