DCWV/May Arts Challenge

I'm so excited! I was one of the 25 people chosen to participate in this challenge. DCWV sent us all 1/2 of  The Snapshot Stack and May Arts allowed us to choose from a set of ribbons and a twine. I picked 3 ribbons and twine. I worked on this (not full time) for over a week and I put my heart and soul into it. I don't have many photos of my sons when they were little, so the few I have are uber special to me! I cut out words I made and a few files I purchased at the Silhouette Store on my Cameo - LOVE my Cameo! So - here it is:
 LOVE these colors! These two photos are expecially important to me. The left photo is 32 years ago, holding my firstborn. The right photo is my younger boy. It truly does feel like yesterday.

 I made the cute little paper holder things by cutting them out of the paper and then adding a smooshed brad to them.
 This black lacy ribbon is fabulous! Seriously! It is sturdy and soft and lovely. The twine was gorgeous, too. 
 The left page is NOT my favorite. I just could get it to work the way I wanted it to. Does that ever happen to you?

I made a couple of these lattice rectangle on my Cameo and I made them into pockets for the journaling tags.
 I made the yellow bow from my favorite ribbon and tied it with twine.

 Love the hexagons - from the Silhouette store. I did a lot of pen work throughout the album.

I love this lace ribbon! I thought it would look cute on a page with the baby photos (sorry M, you are not a baby in the bottom photo).  
Cover - the top tag says Take a Look, the tag on the card (both cut from the stack) says Family, the bottom tag says Memories

Thank you very much DCWV and May Arts! I had so much fun making this mini album!
