8 Fridge Magnets with calendar and photo, and when the year is over, the photo detaches and is a fridge magnet too:

I think I have finished papercrafting for a while. Tomorrow I will be making chocolates for the x-mas tree with the girls, and during the weekend I will be baking hundreds of x-mas biccies !!!

Baby Shower

In a few weeks time I will be going to a Costa Rican-married to an irish Baby Shower :o). I decided to bring her crafty presents:

This card/mini album, was a class taught by Jackie during a cyber Christmas Party at Craftsupplies forum last weekend. The pretty folding from the cover was a class taught by Sabrina.

The Poem inside is in Spanish, but I found the translation in English:

A Child's Angel

Once upon a time, there was a child ready to be born

One day She asked God:

"They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

God: "Among the many angels, I chose one especially for you. She will
be waiting for you and will take care of you."

Child: "But tell me, here in Heaven, I don't do anything else but sing and smile, and that's enough for me to be happy. Will I be happy

God: "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day.
You will feel your angel's love and be happy."

Child: "How am I going to be able to understand when people talk to
me if I don't know the language that they talk?"

God: "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear. With much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."

Child: "And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

God: "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."

Child: "I've heard that on earth there are bad men. Who will protect me?"

God: "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking her own life."

Child: "But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

God: "even though I will always be with you, your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way to come back to me. "

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth could already be heard. The child, in a hurry, asked softly:

"Oh God, if I am about to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."

God: "Your angel's name is of no importance. You will call your angel ...

.... MOM ".

Then I put 2 baby gro's and a little toy dog in this bag. It was inspired in a decorated bag by Gina K

This is a wrapped Baby Girl mini album:
