Confession time

My post for Summer Camp over on the CK blog is up today.
I've copied the post below but make sure to check out the CK blog because there is also a challenge, a free font, a sketch, and a chance to win a mini album from Basic Grey!
Don’t throw tomatoes at me, but I don’t do Project Life or the pocket scrapbooking that is all the rage right now. 
That is shocking, I know! 
Confession: I have started a couple of times but didn't make it longer than a month. 
I am doing something a little bit different. 
Instead of having a huge Project Life album (or several) for the year, I am doing something much smaller. 
I have created a mini-album titled "Bits & Pieces of Life". 

This is a cool burlap album from Little Yellow Bicycle! 

I am including some of my favorite pictures from throughout the year. Instead of trying to document every day or every week, I am using this album to highlight some specific moments/events/happenings from the year. 
This I can do! 
So here is a page from the album. 
A few weekends ago we made a road trip up to Chattanooga to hang out with friends and ride mountain bikes. 
This is a weekend I wanted to highlight!

Along the right side of the 2-page spread, I created a border using a cute bicycle stamp from Bo Bunny Press. 
I stamped the bicyles with brown ink and then added a little bling to the bicycle tires to jazz up the image a bit. 

Mini album (Little Yellow Bicycle)
Cover: Patterned paper (Simple Stories), Cardstock (Bazzill), Flair (Simple Stories), Ribbon (My Mind's Eye)
Inside spread: Patterned paper (Simple Stories), Die cut tag (Chic Tags), Bling (Bo Bunny), Stamp (Bo Bunny), Flair (A Flair for Buttons, Etsy), Ink (Stampin' Up!), Pen (American Crafts)
Have a great day!
