30 Days Of Gift Giving Blog Hop! ~ Day 1

Today is the First day of 30 Days of Blog Hopping! Each day You will find a blog to visit with some awesome "gift" project with some sort of "recipe" or Instructions on how they made it. Some will have their projects available for sale too! This hop is quite different than most because you only have one blog to visit in one day. So you get to really get the project, maybe even try one yourself and check out the rest of their blog too! Be sure to follow the blogs and leave them some "love Behind" (comment on their project).


This is the Project I have for today, not the one I planned for today, but you know how life goes, you got a project and got it all cut out, and you go to finish it and your missing something, well that happened. But I will have that project later in the month so no worries!
This Project, is for my husband's cousin, She sends us pics of her girls every Holiday, you know those cute photo cards and you hang them on your fridge til the next Holiday. I had a pile of these things and jsut couldn't throw them away and didn't know what to do with them. I decided make a mini book for her. I used DCWV Chipboard colored 4 1/2 x 6, 4 of them, then used sheets in between and adhered them together to make double sided paper. I used my Cinch to bind it all together.  Embellished each page with ribbons, flowers, gems and sometimes even used parts of the photo cards as embellishments!

Here are the pics. Yes, the faces look funny in some because I blurred them out!














What mom wouldn't love this book? Its was quick and easy but yet so beautiful! Makes for a nice gift on any occasion and very budget friendly :)

Tomorrow you are going to visit Martha's Blog ~ http://dreamofcrafting.blogspot.com/  She has an wonderful project to share with you!

Here is the whole Calendar of Daily Blogs to visit each day, I'll be posting a daily reminder but in case yo get lost or something the List will always be here! If for some reason the link isn't clickable, just copy and paste and it should take you to the blog.
