Neat and Tangled Blog Hop

 Happy Saturday! 
 I am so happy to be part of a fun blog hop for Neat and Tangled! I am sharing two projects with this stamp set called "Photo Booth".
You probably came from the talented Laurie's blog. If not, come join the hop!

Prizes:  2 winners will be chosen from comments all along the hop! The winners will have their choice of Photo Booth or Sunday School Songs. Winners will be announced on Saturday July 5th on the Neat and Tangled Blog.

Photo Booth 

As you may be aware, photo booth is in trend these days!  I had seen them in use on special occasions. In fact, my niece and nephew both had photo booths at their wedding receptions. It is really fun and great for all ages.

I created the first card using my son David's actual photos from the photo booth. He is turning 20 in August and I think it is perfect for him to see how far he has come! 
celebrate today
I trimmed his elementary school photo and also added his more recent photo (from high school) for this design. The little stamps that come with this set are perfect to add the little personal touches. I think it's safe to post this card since David doesn't visit my blog regularly! :)

My 2nd card is fun one. I did some masking with the photo booth image, stamped and embossed the rest of the card.
 I love the sequin stamp... I also love the various sentiments in this set. It's a versatile set for any age!
I hope you enjoy seeing how this stamp set being in use. Please join me and hop along. 

Here is the hop order:

You've really put this set to good use. Including your son's photos in the card is nothing short of brilliant...it's wonderful to have a set like this that allows that to happen. And your second card is done so cleverly with the film strip stamp. It must have required a little genius to think that up. Just look at the outcome. Think I'm going to have the have this set too.
