Let's HOP 6x8 Style!

No better way to start a Monday 
than with a Blog Hop Simple Stories Style!


As the title of my blog post implies, we're creating with the
 Simple Stories 6x8 Mix & Match Albums
 These albums make the perfect gift or are a great way to document
 a certain event or year-in-the-life project.
  The page protectors come in a variety of sizes so they coordinate perfectly
with all of the adorable journal cards by Simple Stories!

You should be HERE from the talented Yuki Shimada's Blog
But in case you've missed it, here is a full blog line up:
Shellye McDaniel <-------you are here!

Because there are three dividers for an album, I've decided to create
sections for each of my three children.  This year has all ready been a very, very
busy one, so I thought it would warrant an album all of its own!
I'll be sharing Sydnee's portion today...

I added a mini button to the center of the butterflies :)
Using a 6x8 Page Protector and Fab{U}lous Collection




I created this page with the 3x4 Page Protector and 3x4 journal cards


This is the backside of the top photo using the 4x6 Page Protector

I love how this mini album is coming together!
After snapping several photos from the boys' graduations, I'll be
able to fill up their sections pretty quickly.

**Pretty Please: Be sure to leave a comment**
