“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  The stamp set featured this month is D1456 Chairs to You.  This month we have 56 wonderful consultants participating and showing off their creations!

If you have come from Wanda's blog then you are on the right track!

This month was a bit of a challenge.  These chairs and sayings are adorable but I wasn't thinking they were the easiest to work with.  But then my dogs actually helped me out and the 2 page layout I created was born! They love to sit in the big chair and look out the window and I finally caught both of them on the chair at the same time - it was perfect!  I also created a 3.5 x 8 card as well.  I got all into the Kraft card stock with these projects - very fun and easy to work with.  Enjoy!
