Since there is only three and a half days left of school for our little ones, I wanted to share a gift idea that I found on Pinterest, and I actually referred back to it and created it. Here's what I made for the girls' teachers:
I found this idea on Lisa Storm's blog and the pdf for the straw flags that you can download and print out. The cups were purchased at Walmart for around $3.95 each, and I filled them with individual packets of Iced Tea and Crystal Light. I thought it was an easy and fairly inexpensive gift idea. I think they'll like them.
Layout A Day is coming into the home stretch. So far so good for me. I've managed to make a layout a day thus far. Better than my attempt in February where I think I made it only half way through. Here are the last few layouts I have created for LOAD:
The challenge was called 5-5-5. Take only 5 minutes to pick your photos, 5 more to pick your product, and 5 more to do your journaling. Since I have most of my photos printed already, and I knew I wanted to use a 2 page sketch from my Big Picture Classes workshop "Double Take", it was easy picking the photos. Then I used my Scrapbook Circle kit from May, ( "The Story"), so product choice was a breeze. And as you can see, the journaling is minimal. I punched circles out the photos of the medals my granddaughter received and used the negative space to frame the top photos on the right hand side.
I used the sketch from Scrapbook Circle's May sketch challenge for this layout.
The prompt for this one was to create a layout that had to do with the sense of smell. I pulled a couple of rain photos from my category drawers and put this layout together. (Disclaimer: I fixed the crooked border strips and moved the title over to the right a bit more after I scanned this. I was too lazy to scan it again! lol).
And lastly, this layout was created for "Double Take". I followed a sketch they provided and just kind of slapped things down to see how it would turn out. I wasn't sure at first if I liked it, but it definitely has grown on me. I love the photos of our two oldest granddaughters from a few years ago. Brings back such happy memories. And I used up more older product which makes me very, very happy!
Have a great week! I hope to see you around the web. Keep scrapping!
