A Gift for a Friend







Well the holidays are upon us and the gift deadline is quickly approaching!! I have a dear friend in Kansas City who I have known since the first day of college who had a beautiful baby girl last year right before the holidays--My friend Maria, has this wonderful way of mixing the old world and modern that is truly unique--so I thought how can I come up with a meaningful gift that is for them both and reflect Maria and the baby--here is what I came up with!






Last Saturday I finished this up and then on Monday one of my fav blogs



http://cricutchristmas.blogspot.com/ had a similar project with photos (great minds think alike)






Over all it was pretty simple once I picked the papers (which for some reason took forever!) I used A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge for the cut outs as well as the big A (for the baby's name), the script cuddlebug folder for the embossing on the letter, my atg gun and pop dots for some extra interest. The papers are all from Michael's sold by the sheet except the metallic white which is from Big Lots (yes Big Lots). The finished project took about an hour to complete and the ladies in the office all love it--here's to hoping Maria likes it when the FedEx man delivers it next week!
