A Gift for Madi

It started out as this layout about my niece and god daughter Madi.

And I framed it and turned it into this for her birthday. I just wanted to give her something special from me so she would no how much I love her :0) And she really, really loved it! Along with the gift card for shoes we gave her. (She loves shoes and clothes)
By the way, I did the hand stitching on that tag I used for journaling. Lots of fun to sew on layouts! Even when it's something simple as that tag. And it already had pre-punched holes :0)

I do have one more layout to share, but Erin decided to run my tape runner over it. She was just trying to "scrapbook like mommy". But I managed to peel each little piece off. I just need to get a photo now!
