Howdy Stampers!

It’s Saturday, so you know what that means!!  This week we’re getting our Wedding attire on.  If you’ve arrived here from  Linda Duke’s blog, then you’re in the right spot!   I suggest you start back on Sharon Johnson’s blog in order to find out how you can be eligible for today’s blog prize (a $20 gift certificate to the Stamp Simply Store!).  It is a mystery blog candy, meaning that the winner can be chosen from any of the blogs involved.

This week we are focusing on BoBunny products.  If you haven’t been to the Stamp Simply Store, you can find the BoBunny products HERE.

Sharon gave me a challenge for this week’s inspiration.   BoBunny’s Weekend Market line has a really cool chipboard album and she asked if I wanted to take that on.   Of course, I am always up for a challenge, so I said yes.

Let me tell you… I had my hands full!   I wanted to create this as a Father’s Day gift for my husband, so I mandated a photo shoot at our friend’s stables.  That alone was a challenge! Ha!

I love how my photos came out, so they worked beautifully in this cool album….

So here we go!

The “pages” of this album are all different shapes.  At first I wasn’t sure I would like that, but I really did!

It certainly helped that my photo subjects are so handsome!

Oh, and the horses are gorgeous, too! haha!

I was a little worried that I would have appropriate stamps to use for this project, but I found that the Wordsworth Poetry of the Earth set worked wonderfully.

Keep in mind that I am NOT a scrapbooker.

At first I thought these gear dies wouldn’t fit with the project.  Then I got to thinking that my hubby is the gear that got the whole gang started!

I was very proud of my boys for indulging their mother the day of the shoot.   I took almost 50 pictures and my hubby took another 30 or so on his camera.

I left a blank “page” between the 6th and 7th so that I can add the boys’ personal messages to their dad prior to us giving it to him on Father’s day.
