I had to have that box of scrap booking materials in the mail and on the way to an anxiously waiting DD. :)
I did add some to my first page example for her.
She will be less than impressed with this photo but it is a fine example of using the expression to pick up a theme. Not every photo is meant for the mantle! lol I tucked the tag behind the photo. She is keen to journal.
I found some more things for this page and then I found the very much needed arrow! :)
This page is another fun one. I added a pouch with lots of tags. DD#1 was her Dad's foreman/straw boss/lead hand and slipped back into helper mode during a visit. The Tim Holtz tissue paper had some great drafting angles and the word PLAN that I noticed after I'd added it so I tried to position the photo with that in mind.
This is probably our last good family photo before spouses were added and I was tickled to find a wood look paper that kinda matched that old wooden fence that we just finished replacing. I've left room for writing and adding a date or title.
These pages will go in page protectors. I made a slit to accommodate an easy pull out tag and also added a suggestion for the touch of pink.
I ran out of time but this is an idea to get some texture into the pages. I like rub-ons and they added some fun to the photo of a previous kitchen we decorated together!
So the parcel and info is mailed and now to catch up on my own projects. I can't wait to hear how she likes everything. Please, Mr. Postman...
