10 Things I Love About You

Hello Crafty Friends!
Today is my turn to post over at the Pinque Peacock Blog, but I wanted to share my project with you here too.  Who knew I was such an attention hog, eh?!  Hey...Don't answer that!
I am pretty happy with this little shower gift that I created recently for my friend who got married on June 7.
She was happy with it as well... her tears said what words couldn't that day.  
I was so happy that she was so touched by this small token.

As you can see I created a mini journal. It is 4.25"X4" and the title fit perfectly because I chose 10 special photos to put inside.  I used a variety of papers, textures, ribbons, twines and of course, a few of my favorite precious Pinque Peacock goodies.  See that white arrow??? that is to show you how I took a longer stick pin and snipped the end off to make it more size appropriate for my album.  I popped on an end piece to keep it in place and voila!

My gift wasn't complete until I made a tag to top off my craft gift bag.  
Notice that gingham button on the tag?  Yep... another Pinque Peacock goodie. 
I used a bit of Trendy Twine and 3GirlJAM ribbon on there as well. 

I appreciate the opportunity to share this gift with you.  
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a fabulous day!!
