Gifty Challenge- Mini Brag Book

The Challenge: We all love to receive a little surprise . . . just because! This challenge is all about paying it forward and brightening someone’s day! Create something to give away using your Cricut machine. It can be for a holiday, a season, an occasion, or just because. Be sure to include at least 2 Cricut Image Cuts on your project.

I am going to surprise my sister with this girly brag book.  She lives in another state and so does her grand daughter.  She will adore this happy mail to stow all the sweet photos of her grand daughter.  The paper line is Echo Park's Little Girl and some papers from my stash.  I love how I was able to chose cricut cuts to compliment the paper line.  The base is a paper bag album inspired by Kathy Orta's Random Memories Series on You Tube.  I added file cards cuts from "From My Kitchen" to the flaps that fold up to reveal a pocket with photo mats and journal tags.
