My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious blog hop - LO or Mini book challenge

  Welcome to the November My Pink Stamper blog hop!  You should ave arrived here from Carissa (Sprinkled with Glitter).  If not, start at the beginning on Robyn's blog, My Pink Stamper.

  This month our challenge was to use a My Pink Stamper stamp set and our Cricut to create a LO or mini book.  I find challenges good for the soul :)  I took this opportunity to create a mini book of our Alaska trip this past summer.  My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with an Alaskan cruise, then we rented a car and drove the Dalton highway.  We went all the way to Deadhorse, Alaska.  My dh even got his feet wet in the Arctic Ocean!  I did not take a picture of every page of my mini book, but here is a sampling:
 "Alaska" is cut @ 2 1/2" from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.
For my project I used "From the Heart" stamps (front cover:  "Eskimo Kisses")
 Inside front cover "Lost without you!"
 "xoxo"
 "hugs & kisses"
 "I'm falling for you." (a little June Houck punny humor!)
 "I'll love you forever & always"
 "bitten by the love bug"
 "you're my love story"
 "heartthrob" (dhDH, not the burger)
 "I love you"
 "You will always have my heart." (and solid hearts)
Inside back cover: "you will always be my Happily Ever After."

  I love this biggie stamp set!  Here is a peek at the entire set:
  I am giving away a My Pink Stamper "Yummy-licious" stamp set.  Just leave a comment, then email me with your home address if you are the winner (winner will be chosen Monday, November 14th.)

Happy Hopping!  Your next stop is Shelley.

Here is the entire hop list in case you get lost along the way:


Happy 11-11-11!
