"Nothing beats a cup of cocoa on a cold winter's day" might be my longest title ever! I used scraps from my January Polka Dot Whimsy kit for this layout. I am still cutting individual letters out of that keyboard patterened paper by Bella Boulevard. :)
I received a photo order from Shutterfly yesterday. I had taken advantage of their 99 prints for 99 cents sale last week. With a fresh supply of photos, I wanted to get some stories down on layouts before I forgot some of the details.
"16 cents" tells the story of my Christmas gift from Kevin this year. He was upset that he didn't have a gift for me for Christmas, so I gave him $12 and showed him some things in Archiver's that I'd like. I told him to pick out one or two things (all under $5 each) and then I went to wait by the door. He came out all smiles with the bag tucked inside his coat. Then on the way home he commented that he had three things for me. AND that the sales lady was nice enough to give him 16 cents! My boy is too good at math and wanted to spend all of the money on me, but hadn't considered tax! I wish I had known this before we left the store so I could have repaid the nice lady. I guess it's a good thing Kevin is so cute!
He even wrapped the package himself when he got home. The chipboard accents I used on my layout were one of my gifts from him. The alphas were another.
