Thrifty, Gifty!

Here is another picture of a layout from that album I gave as a gift this Christmas. It is one of the first layouts in the album. The bird stamp is from Prickley Pear, the background stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms (they have FABULOUS background stamps!!!) and the flourish is a Stampendous stamp from 2007. The pink rectangles are supposed to be for matting photos. However, they would make great places to journal too.

This layout is also for that thrifty, gifty that I gave. The patterned paper is from We R Memory Keeepers Nonsense line. It is very girly and kind of trendy and teeny-bopper(ish). The polka-dot riboon is from Bazzill, the word "unkown" is a Making Memories rub-on and the dragonfly is an Accucut die I used at the local scrapbook store.
I love this little album and I do have a few more photos to post of it. It was a very fun album to create, and to be truthful, I almost kept it. It would be perfect for someone with a young daughter! (like me!!) Okay...or like the friend I gave it to. Hopefully, she is enjoying it too!
Well, my kiddos are back to school. Of course, at the Gem house, it also means I am back to school. The week has started off as well as could be expected. My DD is having a bit of a problem getting back into the swing of things. She seems to think that whenever I ask her to do something for school that it is a great imposition and she needs to argue with me. The past few days have brought more snow to our Valley, so the kids have been playing, playing, playing. They were outside with their dad this afternoon making BIG snowballs and BIG snow people.
Well, off to conquer some things that need to be done! Have a pleasant week and thanks for stopping by!
