Honey, where are my shoes?

I have no idea babe, maybe you better just get a new pair! Alright so I stole my hubby shoes for this project, lol! He never wears them anyway, he don't even like flip flops.

This is a triple challenge entry. Of course first is the Blogger's challenge -- it is Friday right! The theme this week is Summertime. Next is the LNstampers DT challenge to make summer scrapbook pages and finally the LNstampers weekly challenge to use any type of embossing.


I really had fun with this.

Whole book open


Pages 1-2


Pages 3-4


Pages 5-6


Stamps: Friendly Words Jumbo Wheel and Enjoy Life
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Whisper White, Apricot Appeal, Rainbow Sherbert dp
Ink: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise
Other: Hubby's flip flops, sizzix tag dies, three for you punch, daisies 2 die, wide oval punch, scallop oval punch, large oval punch, green galore buttons and brads, Jumbo white brads on back (forgot pic of that), embossed flower burst folder, 5 petal flower punch, embossing plate with large dots, black and turquoise markers

I think that is it. It took me 4 flippin hours to do this! I never spend that much time on one thing. I do like it though.

What a fun foldout! I did a trace-your-foot card and also used a flip-flop theme, but adding a foldout would have REALLY beed cute! Great job as always!
