50 projects almost there

ok are you ready for some more projects, here are some that where given away to friends and family, this feels so good

this is a paper bag mini that I made for my friend at the office, she is a grandma and keeps all here photos in her phone, I spyed this unfinished mini on a shelf in my craft room and the light bulb went off. so I got in contact with her 3 girls and asked them to send me some pictures that they had sent their mom already I had them send them to my phone and I had them printed at my local Walgreens and the book took off, now these brown bags, lord knows I have gobbs and gobbs of them in that room, I was so happy to find a use for them so I grabbed one and went to decorating to match the book, put some tissue paper and it was lovley (presentation is everything to me)

the paper I used was DCWV I think its called safari  did a lot of fussy cutting and used some glitter flowers I had laying around in my stash, I tried to place a flower every where she had to pull out a tag (she is not a crafty person) I left here lots of room for journaling and some room to add more pictures if she wishes,
I also found some children quotes I had and tried to used a lot of them in this book, with the create a critter cartridge, I was able to embellish with a bit of whimsy, I came in early that morning and left it on her desk with no note or card and she knew just who put it there, and she loved it, I know she will cherish it and take very good care of it. that made me feel good.

here are some small junke journals I made for another co-worker's daughter, she works in a pet store and always has to write something down, what better way then to use a personalized journal so I pulled out my pet paper (I also have a lot of that) and started cutting, the pet paper is random I picked some up everytime my local scrapbook store (when they were open) had some and it started to pile up but this was the answer to that I used a lot of that paper but I still had a few sheets left, she has not received the books yet her mother is waiting for her birthday next week, I cant wait to see here face when she opens the bag, (oh yes I decorated another bag for this gift to, I'm loving this make and give away it's great and I use a lot of things that I have been hoarding lol)
that's it for now, next time I will share some of my project life layouts.
