I manged two pages yesterday - a big achievement for me, considering the mess things have been in recently. It was really very nice to be away from the chaos and just relax!
A memento of my lovely surprise on Friday!
This seemed like an appropriate title, seeing as that is where the parcel came from and also the sweets are "totally USA", since you can't easily buy them here!
I used the photos I took while I was admiring my newly-opened parcel; the tags Deb made for the little parcels were so nice that I added these to the page, along with bows made from some of the ribbon she used.
I used a few Valentines Day rubber stamps, with pink, red and brown inks, to give the page a bit more interest; I had a great bit of scrapbook paper about friends, so a piece of this, with some nice red art paper, made a good mat for the photos. I left a pocket behind the red paper, then added a little bit of ribbon to the lovely note-card that Deb had put in with my parcel. I can keep the card and some journalling in this little pocket. Such a nice way to remember a special present from such a special person!
A page about how J. got his black eye!
I thought the heading just about summed up the Lesson that he learned...
I used some brown felt letters for the word "Cuddles" - quite appropriate I think! The background paper was a great piece of shaped kraft paper I've had for ages; I used some matching kraft embellishments, along with some cute stickers and some arrows to draw attention to the "main attraction", since it's not so obvious at first!
