I prefer summer family activity. Because so hot - a pool is a great option.

I love all the family time that summer brings, and just the simple joy of being together. Lately, we have been eating popsicles together every night as we watch the sun go down. Bliss.

I picked up this magazine last night and loved it (so don't include me in the giveaway please) Your adorable layout was my favorite in the whole magazine- I loved the photo booth type pictures on the right side- is the word 'photo' and 'memories' a stamp and if so who makes it?
Thanks

Stacy Cohen said...

Thanks everyone! And thank you, Moozie for your sweet comment! To answer your question, the photo booth strip is a chipboard embellishment made by GCD Studios, and it comes pre-printed with the words 'photo' and 'memories.' It's from their Winter 2011 release.
