Gifts for Melissa

My mother in law left on Friday to go to Arizona for Melissa's birthday (my sister in law) So I whipped up a few things (ha ha) and brought them over for her to take with her.

THIS was made for her 3 kids on Wednesday -

ok The one with the E and M are for Ethan and Madiline - they're little book buddies made with post it's and a pen and a little bookmark inside - the picture I took of the inside I forgot to save it to my phone - my camera was next door getting charged - sooo sorry I didn't get the open view.
I used my cuttle bug embossing folders for the little frog and buterfly. Then used a few SU stamps (Very Punny frog and a little mini flower - can't remember right now sorry)

THEN for the A - Ashley - she's still a little baby so I picked up a way cute little bunny - you pull it's tail and it viberates/hops :) Cute stuff - I covered a box fromt he dollar store using the crayon kids" flower and used the girls in the 'pocket fun' set -

That's it for that :)

On Thursday morning I made Melissa's card box - She likes green :)

I'm not sure the dementions for this - again I just layed out the cards and scored around it :) BUT I thought it turned out pretty cute.

I made some matching cards to go in it - Then I added a few older birthday cards that I had made for swaps - So she got a full box of birthday cards :)

So that was my fun crafty stuff for last week -
I borrowed a couple of toys from my mother in law on Thursday when I dropped all this stuff off.
Her noteworthy set and punch box and riveting - I also borrowed one of her punchers that she had to make a way cute folder and a mini tag punch that goes inside the folder - way cute. As soon as Cory gets home from his morning running around I plan on going to Robert's for their General Conference sale that they have every 6 months :) Yeah! Not sure if we'll make it to the make it/take it tonight - my kids 5 kids are a lot to handle at these things and they all want to make their own - but it takes too much time and energy for me these days - maybe when the puppies are sold and Collin is older I can get caught up on some sleep and have more energy but tonight.... we'll see - maybe I'll see what Marla's up to tonight :)

Thanks for looking :)
