Good morning, Sweet Readers,
Well, the longest day of the year is June 21 AND it is also the first day of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere! What a wonderful kick off for summer - to have a summer themed blog hop! Want to play along? Sure you do!
The theme for the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Blog Hop is Summer! If you want to join in the fun, all you need to do is create a project (not a card) that follows the Summer theme. You might consider Fourth of July, Summer Family Activities, Fun in the Summer Sun, etc. If you would like to include a card with your project, that would be wonderful! You have so many options for this theme, too! Let your creativity reign!
If you have reached my blog via the amazing and very talented blog of Suzi McManus then you are in the right place! If not, you'll want to start back at the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog so you don't miss a fantastic creation by the very talented gals on the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Design Team!
I'd love to take a minute or two and share my project with you. There are lots of photos, so please be prepared, LOL! I created this Fourth of July album as a gift for our adult son. He tolerates my Tilda/Edwin addiction, LOL. He and his sweetheart will be traveling to Washington, DC for the Fourth of July. My husband and I did the same thing in 1976 for our nation's Bicentennial Celebration. They will have a Supreme Court Tour, Capitol Tour, and visit historic landmarks from Virginia to New York. They will also visit Bucks County, PA, where I grew up. I know how exciting it will be for them. It sure was for us! I thought this album would be a nice way to preserve their memories.
The album has lots of hidden tags as well as folding sections. I tried to cram as much into this album as possible. I hope you like it. Here are my photos:
