OSAAT Favorite Things

Hello My Friends,

There is a new challenge over at One Stitch At A Time this week challenge #173 is "Favorite Things:  I have to warn you, this is very picture heavy.  One of my favorite things is making Lunch Bag Albums.  I made this one for my nephew JoJo who goes fishing with us and the "Pile it On" Quality is that I made it "Just Because I love him"  He can have his own little album to put picture of him & his Aunt Chriss & Uncle Matt to remember those lazy days on the boat. So this is what the out side of the album looks like.

This is from a collection of stamps, this one is called Fishin' With Old Rover 2 you can buy this set and Set one & three in the Stitchy Bear Store.

My husband loved this stamp!  He said "That is a good ol' dog, you should give him a grey muzzle, he looks like he has been fishin' a long time" so I did.

Here are some of the inside pages.

This is what the set looks like from the store, I know I will use it over and over again.

Have to agree with your hubby about the gray muzzle - he (the digi not your hubby lol) really looks like an old dog:) :) :) Take it a lunch bag is a brown paper bag, don't you just love how we speak the same language but every now and again we have no idea what is being talked about. Does ice lolly come to mind lol :) :) :) Hugs Jane xx
