© Two Peas in a Bucket

Morning, all! This page went live at TwoPeas last week and I’m just now getting around to posting it. Gosh, I sure love the photos on this layout.

To create the “postage stamp” edge, I first adhered my photos to the patterned paper. Then, I took a 1/8″ punch and one-by-one punched half circles around the edge. A bit time consuming, but very worth it. :)

After thinking about it for a bit, I came to the conclusion that some scrapbook company must have had the thought the made a postage stamp edge punch. I mean, really? It’s too cute! Sure enough, EK Success has one. I bought it immediately and then I used it on yesterday’s MACM card. :)

Journaling: “The first weekend in June was not only Kate’s birthday, but also her eighth birthday, so she was baptized, too. Dad, Ryan, Aubrey, and I traveled to Arizona to spend the weekend with Kate and the rest of the Hills. The weekend went by so quickly! Before I knew it, I was hugging Kate goodbye and boarding a plane to come home.”
