Summer Fun!

Hello, my friends! I have something a little different for you today! Well...not completely different since it is the second time I've done one...but not like this one! lol Okay, I'll just get to it, shall I? I have a slideshow for you!
I've just completed one of the bigger projects I was working on. It's this super fun flip book! I decided the best way to show you would be with a slideshow. Wouldn't you know Smilebox had the perfect template for it. I think it's just the cutest design and suited my mini to a T.
This flip book is for a dear friend and neighbor. She and her husband have the sweetest little boy and girl ever. So this was personalized for her to fill with their "Summer Fun" photos. I did have a different design in mind. Then one day when I was visiting my friends over on YouTube I happened to see Beverly's video for this Flip Book and knew this was the design I had to use. Beverly has the greatest videos, and you can see the inspiration video HERE...AFTER you've seen my slideshow! lol
The book measures 6" X 8 1/2 " when it's closed, and when it's fully opened it measures 24" X 8 1/2". Every flip and flap is decorated except for the very back. I used the Echo Park Splash Collection, cardstock from my stash, and a few unknown papers. There are some descriptions at the bottom in the slideshow. If you have any questions about anything, please ask! I hope you enjoy! :o)

Hi Nancy - I have been visiting your blog but not always able to leave a comment thanks to my poor internet connection!

Adore what you did with altering the photo of your girls in the last post, great way to alter that pic. Hope your darling daughters thought it was fun :)
