A Scrappin' Farewell

One of my online friend's husband is in the armed forces and has been posted overseas. So we online girlfriends are making her a surprise mini album for her to take with her. Here's my page!

The specs are to use a 6" x 6" layout, include a picture of whoever makes the layout and also put in a quote about friendship. I made a tag to slip behind the layout with a personal message on it as well.

If you want to know more details about how this layout was created, copy and paste this link:

And if you want to know how to make the paper butterfly, copy and paste THIS link - Lol!

Susan, this is an amazing scrapbook page. I love haw you did it. The colors are wonderful and I really like how you printed out your photo. Great job. 6 inch pages I think can be difficult because they are small and you can't get much on them but this is wonderful. I am sure it will be loved. I especially like the butterfly! Oh heck I love everything about it....
