If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Julie at If you came from Christine of then you are in the right place!

Thanks for stopping by I wanted to show you what I created using the For Always Picture My Life cards.  I used a Hip Pic album for this purpose and gave the album as a gift to my Best Friend for her wedding photos. I love making mini albums they are fast and easy and don't take a lot of supplies.  See my supply list after the photos to see the additional supplies I used please contact your local consult to place an order. 
the Cell Phone embellishment was cut from one of the 4x6 cards and the envelope stamp is from the LOL stamp set.  I will be adding the text message my best friend got from her husband on the morning of the wedding. I also cut up this weather card to create the embellishment cluster you see above

I love the new Flaxen and Glacier inks I feel the work well with the gold ascents 

Here I cut out one of the Picture My Life cards for as an embellishment it almost has a stamped feel. Picture My Life Cards are a great addition to your stash as they are very versatile.

Here I used Glacier Slate and whisper ink with Happy Hexagons Hostess Stamp
The XOXOX is a preview of January"s Stamp of the month as a second generation stamping
I added a few squares of the Chalk it up star B&T as a fun print to mix it up
I hope you liked what I came up with.
