My Favorite Hiking Partner

This page is dedicated to my DH. I'm enjoying sprinkling in a few fun pages within our Peru honeymoon trip book with some of the more random pictures we took. These pictures are all from our second day on the trek through the Andes. We only hiked during the morning and early afternoon before we got to our campsite. This left a bit of time for some exploring around the valley. He definitely is "my favorite hiking partner."

I tried a new technique of adding ruffles to my ribbon for this page for the texture challenge over at Scrap and Stamp Saturday. I thought it seemed simple enough to do...a few stuck fingers with the needle later, I got it done. :) I also made my own patterned paper with some of my flourish stamps. To go along with the American Crafts challenge this week, I included three American Crafts products: the backside of the Elements ribbon, mini mark Purkey rubons, and Rocketeer Thickers.

Thanks for stopping by!
