On occasion I like to make a little something for friends or family so I can share my scrapping habit. I made this very simple covered frame for my friend to hold a picture of her and her son that I took at the Branson, Missouri Hot Air Balloon Festival this year. I started with a wood frame I picked up at Michaels for a dollar, traced the frame onto my paper then used my craft knife to cut out the middle. Added a little dark brown ink to the edges and cut the balloons and pin-wheels out from some scrap pieces of Echo Parks Sweet Day, I had left from another project. Embelllished with some stickles and it was done.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.

Everyone has their traditions, mine is a make ornaments for everyone each year. The last few years have been hand painted pottery in the shape of stars, chipboard letters covered with scrapbook paper, last year was a corn starch ornament that the kids and I painted. This year, thanks to Pinterest, I made scrabble tile name ornaments. We aren't able to get presents for everyone, but I do like to give something.
Growing up Santa Claus alway brought an ornament each year, and I have carried that tradition on with my kids. I also love that every ornament on my tree has a story and is personal.

As I'm sure all scapbookers or even crafters know we apprecitate when another crafter uses our ideas. My local Scrapbook Store, Scrapbook Generation does weekly sketches and also has several kit of the month clubs. I love the sketches but can't always order one, and they sell out quick. So when I stumbled across this layout, I just knew I had to try and recreate it on my own. It took lots of patience but I really am happy how it came out. I just have to add my journaling card to the empty space and its good to go. I love the way Echo Parks Sweet Days paper went with the photos of my son and his since before birth buddy playing, when we went and visited her in August.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful Christmas!!
