"First Christmas" LO- Part 1

I put this LO together earlier this evening. It is my oldest ds's 1st Christmas. This will be a 2 page LO but I haven't started the first page yet. I am trying to finish up his "First Year Album" so, one page down & forever more to go.

I decided to go with a photo block and then have a button border, I wanted to pull the bright colors from the pic onto my LO! Off I go to start the first page for this spread!

Altered Idea & Address Book

I found these 2 books at Wal-Mart on clearance. They came as a set and were marked down to $2.50! One of them is a journal (big one) and the other is an address book. I really liked the look of them and am totally into brown, so I had to buy them. I just thought they needed some "love" SO, I put a few things on them to add some character! The journal I plan on using to store ideas, tips, sketches, etc. The address book I am going to use for all the CKMB members contact info that I have acquired through swaps, RAKs, etc. Here is how they turned out:

Supplies: flower background pp; KI Memories-Pop Culture; pink letters: Thickers; green lettered chipboard: QVC 900+ piece pack; flower: KI Memories; ribbon: Aunt Gerti's Garden; felt bird: Oriental Trading; other: sticker

Another Valentines Day Card

Outside View
I have been working on this card for the past few hours. It's a tri-fold but rather then it fold side to side, it folds up & down.

Inside View

I made a envelope on the bottom of the card, which holds my "greeting" I added a chipboard heart with a rub-on to make it look more fancy! The "XOXO" and the box that it's in are also rub-ons (oh how I love those things)

Supplies: Cardstock:DCWV; All rub-ons: American Crafts; Ribbon: One Heart One Mind; Other: string
