I am at my retreat now, and I am anxious for the sun to come out tomorrow so that I can take pictures of the surroundings and show you! I have wireless here, so I'll be posting as always. In fact, I think you may even see more from me than normal!
The first thing I want to show you is kind of fun. Jerry received his 20-year watch from his employer this past March. I wanted to showcase the letter he received with it, but I didn't want to use a whole page. So I used this nifty product from Close To My Heart called a Flip Flap Memory Protector. I'll show you a couple of pictures so that you can see how it works.
Isn't that fun? You just pull the adhesive strip and attach it to the memory protector. I wish I had had these when I did my Italy book. They would have been perfect! These little flip flaps come 8 protectors to a pack: (4) 6"x12", (2) 4"x12", and (2) 8"x12'. They are a very inexpensive little addition to a book at $3.95. Now I used Cherie's sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches for this layout.
I left out the blocks because the paper already had so much design.
