My Pinks Stamper's November Pink-alicious Blog Hop

Welcome Everyone! 

You should be arriving from Roberta's blog, and you should have started at Robyn (My Pink Stamper)'s blog. If you didn't then head to Robyn's blog to start and hop along so you don't miss any of the great projects!!

Since I found out that we were going to be able to visit my sick Grandfather this weekend while we are in Oregon I decided to make him a mini book! 

Because I found out about my grandfather on Wednesday and I was leaving on Thursday I kept my book simple!


My kids call him "GG Pops" so I used my Cricut Classics Font cartridge and cut that out at 2 inches and I used the shadow feature for the back of my letters.


I used 8 1/2 x 11inch paper cut in half to give me 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch pages for my book. A 4x6 picture fits greats and gives me room to write a little something! 

I had all my sibling send me some pictures of their families so that I could have us all in this book.


I glued three of my 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 sheets together and then covered them with cute paper to make my cover, and then repeated for my back cover. I then distressed the edges with a distressing tool and then I used black ink over the edges.


I was looking through Robyn's stamps for a stamp to use and this one was so perfect! I actually almost started to cry! This stamp is from her More Fabulous Phrases stamp set!


I hope that you enjoyed my project! Now hop on over to Maria

In case you got out of order here is the order we are going in tonight, and make sure that once you have hopped to everyone's blogs head back to Robyn's blog and join in the fun!!!
Have a great weekend!!!
