Mini scrapbook thank you...

I have a wonderful challenge coming up this weekend...and with that I got this fabulous idea on what to do for my daughter's thank you cards. I am so sorry that I am sending them out so late, but I really wanted to make them special. so on to my project! I developed pictures to give to Taelyn's friends that came to the party...and then came up with this fun mini layout of 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scrapbook page. Aren't they the cutest! I love this picture...so for each of her classmates I made this for them. I added flowers...what's a creation without flowers?? lol! I also added ribbon & bling for the girls. Taelyn wrote her thank you notes on that journaling piece w/ heart tab. I am very pleased with how this turned out!
here's another one...I have this cool program that can change my pictures around...it's called "gimp" and so with that I made the picture black and white w/ a tinge of color and faded the edges. doesn't this picture look like it's an antique? like back in the old western days or something. I love how this turned out. then I added my lovely crocheted lace & mini roses.
here's the ones I made for the boys...as there were only two of them. no flowers here and I just added some dew drops.
I hope you have a wonderful Thursday...it's ANOTHER furlough Friday for me. have a good one and as always I am so grateful for your comments and encouraging words. I really do appreciate it. till next time: Live and work, but do not forget to play, to have FUN in life and really enjoy it! ~Eileen Caddy

Be Blessed,
