Rusty Bottle Rockets Red Glare

Aloha mai! Whoa, it's been a while since I last blogged!  Summer is so packed full of things to do!  Our neighbor has a beautiful cherry tree that we have been eating off of and their Raspberries have come into fruit too.  Kai's corn is growing and we even have some tomatoes so far!  

Among all the other things I've been doing, I finished an album today for the Rusty Pickle July Blog Challenge.  It might not count because it's supposed to be an altered item using their patriotic paper lines.  My original idea fizzled (pun intended), so I decided to alter two pieces of chipboard into an album, added envelopes and a tag, and also altered two pieces of MM metal tags (the ones with the holes around the perimeters into charms for the album.  

Even if it doesn't count, I had fun using the new Bottle Rockets paper!
