it's time for our RRR Blog Hop....

It's time for our RRR Blog Hop today and this month we have a beautiful ribbon
assortment to use.  It's filled with gorgeous aqua's and peachy pinks so you will
love all the things our team has done with it to share.

April Ribbon Club Assortment

So if you started on the hop from the beginning here then you should
have hopped over from Heathers blog......

 For my challenge project today i decided to look ahead to summer and create
a fun little mini book filled with lots of folds and pockets that i can put my
vacation pictures in.  I love having a few types of these books so i can be ready when
i get all my photos done and put them inside of it.  The papers i used 
for this are from My Minds Eye and i also used the wood pieces and the stickers
that came with the set.  I really like the colors and patterns on this one.

To make this book you just need some 12x12 card stock- and cut it in half to make
it 6x6 when you fold it.  The back is started with a criss cross and then i added
envelopes and other papers to make pockets.  I used bits of ribbon to create the
brightly colored borders on it and decorate each of the pages.  I also used a sheet
of Basic Grey adhesive letters and stickers that went with it perfectly.

On this one you can see the polka dot gross grain in the set.

Here you can get more of an idea of how the basic book looks.  On the
tan paper sides with arrows i cut pockets for travel goodies and photos and
then used a pretty piece of checkerboard satin ribbon to decorate each of them.  I also
added a few photo chipboard pieces and adhesive words i wanted.

This page has the cutest red travel paper and i thought that a piece
of ivory crochet lace would look really good on it- so i glued it to the side
and added another of the photo boxes to fill in later.  There is so many
more pages but it's good to get you inspired to do your own for the summer
and get ahead.  Can't wait to go on a new adventure......

And....Now it's time for you to hop on over to Jenn's blog for
another cute idea to use the new April ribbon club collection .
I am sure she has something amazing to share with all of you.

Have a wonderful and crafty day.... Teresa
