UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.

Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.
If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Christie Daugherty - Team Spirit layout, wasn't that an AMAZING layout.  I love the way she showed step by step instructions how it would look using MDS?  WoHoO!

If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FANTASTIC projects we have for you.
Since it is National Scrapbooking Month, I thought I would create a fun little scrapbook in a recycled plastic case.

  I love to recycle trash into fun gifts and here is one that was really fun to make.  The clear box container I used was something I bought clip keyrings in.  I had found one of these mini scrapbooks online and thought it would be a fun little project to do.

A perfect little scrapbook to give as a gift or to tuck in your purse.  I did not glue my pictures onto the pages, but tucked them under the scallop border trim.  That's a tip that I forgot to put in my FREE PDF that can be found on the main UStamp Blog Hop Site.

Of course we always have to have a matching card for our UStamp events.  Here is just a bigger version of the front of my box.
As a Special Thank You for stopping by my blog I am giving away BLOG CANDY!!

Great idea to tuck the photos under the trim instead of adhering them..easy to change out if you want.
