Christmas gifts...revealed

SO, I've been dying to post some of these pictures. But, since they were for Christmas gifts, I had to wait until after the holidays. :)

I gave this calendar to both my SIL Heather and my MIL Debbie (with different pictures). Here's a sample of what it looks like. You can download the template from Jessica Sprague here. I inserted pictures, cut, and had the whole thing bound at Office Max. I think they turned out great!


I also made a mini-scrapbook for our friend Chris. He has been traveling a lot, and hadn't had a chance to print any pictures, so I gathered them up and surprised him with this! I should mention that Chris's nickname is "hobbit", so for the cover page I photoshopped his head onto Frodo's body. The result is pretty funny! Shown here are about half the pages. Due to technical difficulties, I'm going to have to do a separate slide show for the other half. Stay tuned.



THANK you all for looking, and THANKS so much for your comments - they really brighten my day!!
