It's VIP day at My Favorite Things - your chance to pick up the July Who's That Girl set, Who's That Gardening Girl, a whole three weeks early. The July VIP kit also includes a free mini set, some white scalloped notecards, and a sweet paper, ribbon, and button bundle. Hurry, the VIP kit is available for one day only.
VIP day also means its blog hop time! It's an especially exciting blog hop because we're announcing three new design team members!! You won't miss a single project or announcement if you start at the beginning with Kim and work your way through to the end.
I plant a modest vegetable garden every year, and would really love a place to record information and photos during the growing season and even from year to year. I can never remember from one year to the next which tomato variety I like best, which cucumbers did the best, and all sorts of other info that would be useful. Who's That Gardening Girl was perfect for my garden album/journal!
This album was originally a mini scrapbook album, so it has clear photo/layout sleeves inside, but I'm excited to add all sorts of other goodies using my bind-it-all ... envelopes to hold seed packets, pages for journaling, canning and freezing how-to, and so on. Having a pretty book should motivate me to keep better records, right?
I love to share the comical observations and commentary I get from my 6-year-old daughter, who loves crafting every bit as much as her mama. When she saw this book, she looked very quietly for some time and seemed puzzled. Finally, in a shy little voice, she asked, "Why isn't she wearing any pants?" LOL - I was going for khaki. Be honest, friends, does it look like khaki or a bare bottom? Instead of skin-tone arms, I gave her a pair of long green (and very snug) garden gloves. Coloring is with Copics. The red and green ric rac strips are cut with MFT's new Jumbo Ric Rac Die-namics out of MFT's felt . The ric rac piece at the top is cut from canvas fabric. Behind the image is a square of burlap.
Your next stop on the hop is Sherrie. Get ready to see all kinds of gorgeousness! Enjoy the rest of the hop!
