The story of the mini album
For Christmas this year, my mother-in-law gave me a book of gift cards. I know, the best gift ever! She made the book by hand. She used her heat gun, embossing powders, stamps, Christmas papers and hand drew many different Christmas images. As I paged through this album of gift cards to my favorite stores, I had an idea. I wanted to fill the album with Christmas pictures and give it back to her. That way she would have Christmas pictures of her family celebrating the holidays.
I packed all my printed photos and supplies and figured this would be a great project to work on at a crop. Once, I settled in with my scrappy friends, they questioned what I was doing. My husband also was worried it might insult his mother. Did I make a mistake? I started to question what I had done.
Thankfully, she loved it. We gave it to her for Valentines Day. I love the end result as well. Now we have some wonderful giftcards, a great album filled with love AND a funny story.
