Crate Paper - Little Bo Peep

While I was in Minnesota this past summer visiting my BFF of 42 years, Patti Lyn, we were at a scrapbook store in Pine City, Minnesota, and we fell so in love with this sweet Little Bo Peep line by Crate Paper.  She and I both bought it ALL, and made some cute albums and cards with it while we were together.  Then, at the end of my trip, we stopped back at that same scrapbook store and stocked up again because we both loved it SO much.  Well, about a month or so ago, I was on Melissa Phillips' Blog and saw an adorable album she had made with this lovely line.  I had to lift some of her ideas and make yet another album.  So, Melissa gets the creative credit for the ideas on the cover and a couple of pages.  I always try to put my own "spin" on things, but it was definitely inspired by Melissa, and it's always best to give credit when someone has inspired you.  Melissa is a humbly sweet woman, and she always feels blessed when she is able to inspire others with her talents.   I hope you will all stop by her sweet blog (here - Melisssa's Blog) if you've never seen it.  She is super creative, and.....a MUCH better photographer than I am. Someday I will learn. . . . .some day!
Glitter-n-Sparkle Challenge Blog - Challenge #6 - Things With Wings.  My cover page has this sweet bird, and my third page also has birds.  I couldn't resist sharing this.

 This third page is based on a challenge sketch at Paper Sweeties.  I used their sketch along with the sentiments from the Pennant Party Stamp Set.  I kept this page pretty simple so that a larger photo would fit here.  So, I'm sharing this particular page in the Paper Sweeties Challenge.
Here is the link: - Paper Sweeties Challenge #1 - Sketch Inspiration.  I used the Pennant Party sentiments on this album page.  It's such a blessing when stamp sets are versatile enough to use on different projects.  You will just LOVE the sweet stamp sets  at Paper Sweeties. - Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog - Challenge #102/Anything Goes - Challenges 4 Everybody - Challenge #7 - Anything Goes - Scrappers' Delights Challenge blog - November Challenge/Anything Goes - Crafty Mess Challenge Blog - Challenge #21 - Nursery Rhyme/Characters - I decided that since I used the Little Bo Peep line from Crate Paper, this is perfect for this challenge. - Crafty Ribbons Challenge Blog - Challenge #32 - Nursery Rhymes - I figured that since I used the Little Bo Peep line from Crate Paper for this project, it would fit into the Nursery Rhymes category.  The prize is also a Baby Collection - and that fits with my baby album theme.  I hope this is alright.  Everybody loves Little Bo Peep, right?
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my Little Bo Peep baby album by Crate Paper.  I have been working on getting things ready for a BIG upcoming craft boutique that I do every year at my church.  This year, it is scheduled for November 30 - December 1, so I need to GET BUSY!  Wish me luck, friends.  My "list" of projects sitting on my craft table is staggering.  We will see how much of it I get completed.
Have a blessed day!
