Summer Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock

Hello friends!  

Hope you are joining us for some summer fun!  Lori Whitlock is having a blog hop today so if you've just arrived from Mendi's  blog...welcome!  You're in the right place!


If you don't know about the hop and want to join us, fantastic!  You'll want to hop over to Lori Whitlock's site to get started!

This hop is all about summer inspiration!  For many of us, summer means travel, and what would travel be without a camera to capture all those wonderful memories?  Well, this adorable camera may not take any pictures, but it certainly is a fun little keepsake for storing those vacation shots.

For this project, I used Lori's new camera mini album.  I enlarged it 130% so that I could tuck in some 4x6 photos.  The paper is Here and Now by Echo Park, another awesome collection designed by Lori! I love the bright summery colors!  


I wanted to keep the album pages simple to focus on the photos, but I did add some element stickers to a few of the photos -- so easy and so cute!


For the camera strap, I punched a hole in the side of my camera after I put it together.  I added a small grommet over the hole and hooked in a little 7 Gypsies chain.  The ribbon is a scrap from an old Basic Grey collection that I found in my stash -- I love that it looks like a real vintage camera strap :) !

Thanks so much for stopping (hopping) by today -- to show my appreciation, I am giving away 
a scrappy surprise to one lucky winner!
