Lovin' Blueberry Hill!

Hi all! Mimi here to day as your blog hostess!

I love the fun, vibrant colors in the Blueberry Hill collection by Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker . This line was also perfect for these photos I wanted to scrap.

Each year my in-laws take the boys for a "Breakfast Picnic" at the park. The boys help cook, play on the playground and dive in to a delish breakfast! This year we made it a big family affair! My brother and his daughters came as well as my hubby and my nephew.

Nicks favorite part of the day...beside the eating is helping cook. It also happen to be one of my niece's Adrienne's birthday so we added a little birthday cake and celebration to our breakfast meal.

A few details...

I also decided to start some of my homemade Christmas gift early...I can now cross one off my list. I made this for my father in law...perfect little way to display some new pictures of the boys on his desk.

I wanted an easy template so that I can just update the pictures for him periodically. I made the cube a with kraft cardstock and can easily remove the pictures and put new ones with little work or hassle.

This photo cube is by Traditions Studio. I love that this sits on a base and you can just spin it around to see another picture...so cute!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
