brag book, exploding box & a thank you (pic heavy)

So after a long break from scrapbooking (months longs) I've started doing stuff again!

Sorry, about some of the pics, I took some pictures without my flash and then some with the flash, which is why they look different.

First is a brag book I made, trying to use up some of my scraps, I technically started this months ago, but finally finished it up. I had some left over badge protectors that I am never going to use, and thought they would make a cute mini album. So I choose some of my favorite pics of the kids & family.


I made my first ever exploding box!! It's a gift for my 10yr old sd, she doesn't get to see the kids very often since she lives 3hrs away, so I used pictures from the last year for it. I laminated the outside of the box to try to strengthen it a bit since she has younger siblings as well and I worry that the sides will be ripped of in no time at all.

And my thank you! A co-worker of mine gave us some clothes for Abby, and I made this for her as a thank you. It's more of a mini layout then an actual card.

Wow, I love the Brag Book! The ribbon on the outside is perfect, as are the touches like buttons and flowers! So nice. And great job on the exploding box. And I'm going to remember your idea for making a mini-LO greeting card!!! What a cool idea! Your friend will definitely appreciate it.

Good job on all of it! I love the brag book and exploding box. I swear, after seeing everyone's exploding box, I may have to try this one too!

Love the card!
