Free To Be Me Blog Hop


Celebrating National Scrapbooking Month
with a mini scrapbook flip album.
Welcome to the "Free To Be Me" blog hop. If you have come from 
Gina Brandstetter's  blog you are on the right trail. 
My scrapbook project is the Snapshots Mini Album from Artbooking Cricut booklet 
pages 40 & 41.I changed the size to fit the Decor Flip Stand. To make this flip album
 just cut each page @ 6 3/4" with white daisy cardstock.  Then cut all the pieces of the 
album at the same size 6 3/4" using the papers from the Free To Be Me paper pack. 
Then just add your elements to each page as desired to coordinate with your photos.
Front page shows my favorite photos of my amazing grand children.
Living in Southern California we spend a lot of time at the beach.
These are a few of my favorite beach photos. It was hard to pick.
Use the background of a photo to mount behind the "click it" bubble.
Oh Snap. Grandpa just loves to snap the girls when they
get together. These photos where at ages 8, 15, and 18. 
I call this page with my beautiful grand daughters "Three's a charm"
My Sunshine girl, Ashley, really is the light in every ones life.
This page has a vellum envelope with the camera icon inserted
for some journaling.
Zachary is my youngest grand child. He is famous for always 
being himself. I tucked a journal strip in the pocket to make 
some notes about this amazing young man.
These are my twin grand daughters Alicyn and Alexis. 
They always brighten the day with their happy smiles and 
loving attitude. To make the photo mats just cut the photo mats 
that were used for the pages at 4 3/4 real dial size. 
My first born grandson, Joshua, is indeed "Awesome."
I stamped some journaling lines directly on the page 
before adding each part. This is a pocket page with
the photo tucked into the pocket.

Now it time to hop over to Michelle Stewart's blog to
see her amazing "Free To Be Me" creations. 
Happy trails as you hop along.
