Stack of Stuff

We are celebrating Kevin's last week of physical therapy around here, and as long as I am in the journal-making mood, I put these two notebooks together for the physical therapy gals who come to the house every week to help Kevin's new knee settle in just right! That's about as nice as it gets ... because I canNOT take credit for this design! Check out this post for Mish's cutest ever stack of Vintage Picnic Baskets! I've been using the sentiments in this PTI set for all kinds of stuff, but this is the first time I've inked up the basket-a-roonies! LOVE THEM! Here's the scoop on my stacks: Scarlet and Blueberry Pie cardstock from Archivers, and a dash of Old Olive stamped with a very old Angel Company Squiggle stamp that I love! Of course, I used PTI's Polka Dot Basics (ah-hem, just get it) stamped in Chocolate Chip. Ya didn't think I could make anything withOUT polka dots lately, now did ya? I went through my scrap bin to choose patterns to stamp my picnic baskets, and then cut them out with fine tip scissors.
If you have an eye for detail (and I know you do!), this next shot shows how I "stitched" around the computer-generated sentiment --- because I just thought it needed it! :)

Here's the inside cover, with a matching piece of cardstock to coordinate.
And here they are bagged, tagged, and ready to go! I gotta stamp a whole STACK of these again. It is just too cute!
Happy Sunday!
