Family Portraits

This Christmas I created a couple family portrait gifts and thought I would share them with you:

 I actually rearranged the little ones on the "A" and "S" but couldn't find an updated photo.
Another Ningyogami family portrait

As gifts, they were relatively inexpensive.  The frames were all under $10, but it is the time to create them that is the great gift of all, I think.  Thank you for visiting!!

K & Company Thanks

I knew these cute little diecuts by K&Company would come in handy one of these days . . .
These cuties were used to make quick little Thank You notes for the boys to make and send.
All I did was cut an 8 1/2" x 11" thick white cardstock into 3 1/2" x 4" pieces, added a Thank You stamp and adhered them on. 

They were big enough to for boys to write own nicely and yet small enough that they didn't run out of words to say.  Ok, I vow to take better pictures without using the Iphone camera next time!  Thank you for stopping by and Happy New Year!  Hope it's a blessed one!!!
