Picture This!- Blog Hop for Sentimental Sundays

Welcome to the Sentimental Sundays 
"Celebrate Summer" Blog Hop! 
If you have arrived here from Tenny's  lovely blog
than have come to right place.  If you get a
bit lost or have not started from the beginning you may want to go to Sentimental Sundays where it all starts. 

The challenge this week is 
“Summery or Sparkly” (plus a sentiment)
It can be either or both. For some that are in their winter months, or rainy season, may not feel up to a summer challenge, so anything “Sparkly or Shimmery”
will be perfect for this challenge. So there are options!

Our sponsor is the marvelous Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. This prize will be four INDIVIDUAL sentiment sets from the Whimsy Stamps-Raindrop Echo Designs Don't forget to leave comments along the way because there are 3 mystery DT members who will each choose a winner from the comments left on their blog hop posts. The winners will each win a $10 gift certificate to Whimsy Stamps! The hop ends on Friday, June 24 at midnight EST. The winners will be announced on the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog on Sunday, June 26th.

As you have figured out this is a very long post and we have lots of awesome blogs for you to visit, so grab your favorite treat and beverage of choice  
(It's 5:00 somewhere right?!) and enjoy!
I am going to be mean and make you look through all my pictures before I point you to where you will
be going next!

For this challenge I made a mini album
for a good friend of ours that is graduating
high school! I saw this great project
on Bab's blog  who got it from 
The Scor Pal Web-Site and just had to give it a try
Thank You Babs!
It is hard to see but there is sparkle and shimmery
 glittery goodness on every page! 
If You can't see it here, you can see it in 
every inch of my house, my hair, face, clothes,
my husband's hair, face clothes... It is

 Lots of flips and folds

If you would like so see more awesomeness
then hop on over to Sally's Blog and see what
eye candy she has in store for you.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
