Christmas Gift Idea

This is the gift we are making for some of the men in our family this year. . . I just hope they aren't all regular readers of my blog. :-)
I used a 5"x7" photo as the base and printed the text on a piece of vellum and centered that over the photo. Pretty easy and a nice gift, too.

Before and After

This morning my friend Julie and I put together these pages. This is a great idea when you want to do a layout with a "Before and After" Theme.

We chose one picture to highlight (the large 5x7 in the upper left corner), added before and after pictures in the bottom right corner (later we stamped "Before" and "After" above the photos) the yellow square we kept blank to add journaling and then. . . . .

. . . . used wallet sized pictures to show the progression of the the project. Added some ribbon, buttons and a bitty brad for embellishment.

Pretty great idea I think! Well done Julie!
Idea adapted from a pattern in IMAGINE by Jeanette Lynton.
