July 2012 Photo I Love

I originally thought I'd choose a photo of my new craft room for my favorite photo in July, however, as I scrolled through my photos from last month a different one jumped out at me, and I decided to include it in my 2012 Photo I Love album instead. I'm enjoying how these pages look with the square punched pieces of patterned papers and cardstock around the edges. (These squares represent the papers I used on layouts in the month of July.)

Journaling reads: When we arrived at the Bed & Breakfast in Taos for my 43rd birthday trip, Robbie (as usual) had arranged to have roses and a chocolate cake waiting. I love how he always remembers to call ahead for this special treat!

You have a very thoughtful husband! Neat idea to use left overs from previous layouts. This came together very nicely!

I absolutely love the idea of using the papers you have been enjoying all month. That's inspired! And, oh, those roses :)

Such a nice idea - both his (a gem, as I keep saying) and yours, for those paper squares work really well.
