A handmade Birthday gift from my Mom

I'm sure many of you are familiar with paint cans for scrapping. Well if you haven't seen the clear ones, you so missing out! Today is my birthday and waiting on the patio table of my mom's house (I take my boo boo bear Dakota dog, everyday there for doggie day care) was this cute little bucket! Inside is a match book. I will have to ask how she gets the template for the book its self, but she uses small manillan envelopes for the pockets inside that are just a little larger than a gift card. The outside she has cut some patterns from her papers and uses wire to pop the butterfly and the baloon. Inside was 3 gift cards to some of my favorite places; Michaels, Starbucks, and McDonalds! I will have fun spending those. In the meantime I am just enjoying having this on my desk here at work for the day.

Adornit Blog Party Challenge for Day 2

While I have already posted this on my gallery, thought that I would post it here anyway. I had fun doing this challenge the layout was perfect with the very next page in my album that I had to do! I used the K & Co Happy Trails paper with the DCVW cardstock. Mmaya Road chip board for the flourish, random chipboard painted with MM paints, the Colorbok Friendly Forest for the squirrel and I tried my hand at the paper pieced flower from the template given in the Scrapbook Etc. magazine. Come back later for some more glimpses of my travel album!
