Below is the list of blogs. You should have come from Christine's blog where you viewed some great Dear Lizzie projects. Next up is Lynn's blog with My Mind's Eye Be Happy papers.

So let’s get started with the projects I created using Teresa Collins’ Everyday Moments. First, I have to tell you how excited I was to find such a fun navy blue and yellow paper line. I’ve been looking for a couple of years for papers in these colors to use to make some wedding pages for my daughter’s 2010 wedding. Her wedding colors? Navy blue and yellow. The line is fun yet elegant, appropriate for the photos I wanted to scrap with. I found the mason jar chipboard album at Want to Scrap and bought several, as mason jars were featured heavily at the wedding as vases for centerpieces and drinking glasses. Well, you’ll see what I mean as you look through this mini:

The photo in this layout is a bit grainy--iPhone pix are not always the best, but I like how it captured the moment. Not every photo has to be absolutely perfect, work with the photos that tell the story:
When I have a bunch of matching supplies out after creating a layout or project, I love to make cards and ATCs:

I still had a bunch of chipboard pieces, element stickers, brads, and papers left over when I finished. Other than the mason jar chipboard album I supplemented the theme paper kit with some solid cardstock in white, yellow and navy. I used punches and dies, a few buttons and my Sew Right tool and some floss, and some Thickers for my layout title. I love this line so much I actually bought doubles of everything so I could use it for other projects as well. Enjoy! Keep hopping along. Lynn - MME: Be Happy http://frommybungalow.blogspot.com/
