For my project, I decided to create a memories book for my husband and I. I started by pulling out a few photos, and just started adding mementos and journaling to the pages. I'm featuring 3 2 pg layouts that I have created. The Crush book I choose is In The Pink(Z2000).
The first of these pages, I used Jouraling card from the Balloon Ride PML set, and added a stamped imaged from May's SOTM "Enjoy the Moment". The second page, I matted the photo on a piece of cardstock from the Basic Fundamentals Assortment. I then used the hoodstooth clip from the In The Pink Clip collection to hide some extra journalling.
I added some doodling just for fun. I really love how easy it is to put these pages together.
I hope you enjoyed my pages, and that I've inspired you to create your own memories Crush album. Now head on over to Melinda for some more fantabulous artwork.
