Happy July!

It's Paper Niche July kit's reveal. This month's kit is loaded with 7 Gypsies, Fancy Pants, Glitz Girls, Prima, Pink Paislee & a ton of ribbon, lace and fabulous rhinestones and swirls.

This first layout is our son and his wife celebrating their 1st Anniversary with a hot-air balloon ride.  It's OK that they're having champagne.  Lexie's a couple of weeks from being pregnant and ... they've got a designated driver pilot on board.

This layout is of our daughter and daughter-in-law, both of whom are expecting our first grandchildren..

I made this purse mini album with 4 small paper bags. They are laid on top of each other and then sewn across the center and folded for the binding.

The open ends of the bags become pockets where I inserted several tags.

Every page is different.

This is the back.  I put grommets in the top corners and used ribbon for the handle.  The hasp is cut out of iron-on patch material using Tim Holtz' Hardware Findings die.  It's glued in the back and has a small piece of velcro in the front.

Today we're having an all day 4th of July "picnic crop" with hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans and everything!  The best part is that we'll be indoors with air conditioning and NO ANTS!!!

Have a fabulous and blessed weekend and a wonderful 4th of July!
