I decided instead of frames I would use cards and "Scrapbook" both sides of the cards. That way there would be a picture displayed on both sides, then it won't matter what side of the table you are sitting on you can see a picture. I had some old blank cards in my craft room, I picked out 8 of them. They already had designs on both sides of the card, I simply embellished on the already printed designs.
After laying the cards out on the kitchen table ( remember yesterday I told you I had room on the table in my craft room for crafting? Well...I just have to craft in the center of everything) That's right and make a BIG mess. Yep-that's how I like it!
Alex- you didn't tell me paper crafting was such a messy sport. :)
There were so many tiny, tiny pieces of paper EVERYWHERE.
In all seriousness I really, really enjoyed the whole experience.
Tonya was my amazing helper as well, It was nice that we both got to craft together, as the babies took a nap today at the same time. OH how I remember, every mother's dream of a quiet afternoon. ♥
OK-it's time for the big reveal.............
SIDE ONE of the cards.
SIDE TWO of the cards.
One thing I realized about paper crafting is that it is almost instant gratification. Once all the cutting and punching is done it comes together fairly fast. Just another reason for my new love affair.
I feel accomplished for the day.
Every day there is so very much to be thankful for. But this year we are especially thankful for our loved ones, especially the tiniest baby, Mia.
HUGS- see you all again tomorrow.
