Fun in the Sun blog hop!

Happy Saturday
welcome to the Fun In The Sun blog hop!

If you got here from Sarabeth of Chronicles Of Sarita, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stumble across the hop on my blog today and would like to start at the beginning, hop on over and see Joy at Joy's Life.

For my project, I decided to try my hand at a TP roll mini album. I have never done one of these before but I have wanted to try it for awhile so I gave it a shot. They are really simple to do and I had a lot of fun making it. I made my mini into a summer theme for all those cute little random pictures we take of our kids during their summer vacation from school.

Here is a pic of the mini closed. My sentiment and popsicle came from the Popsicle Puns set by Joy's Life stamps:

Pages 1 and 2:

Pages 3 and 4.
 Page 3 has a stamp from the Mother & Daughter set
and page 4 has a stamp from Lots of Pun. Both from Joy's Life.

Pages 5 and 6:

Pages 7 and 8:

Pages 9 and 10.
Both pages include stamps from the Sweet Popsicle Puns by Joy's Life:

Here is a picture of the album closed with all the side tags out:

I left all the tags blank so there is more room for journaling/pictures.

Like I said, I had so much fun making this and I think it came out so cute. I will definitely be making more of these soon.
