Tuesday Card Layout

Happy Tuesday,

What do you do with the cards that your kids make and give to you?  Well, last year was the first year that Jack made me a card in which he wrote in the card.  I had this card saved on my scrap room shelf but I decided to take it apart and save it in album.

To make this layout, I simply took apart the card and then added it to a pretty October Afternoon paper.  I added some tags, a title, "The best card ever", some journaling and I was done!! Now I have saved it forever!!  When I showed Jack the finished layout he was so happy that I made a layout of it!!

The Best Card Ever!

supplies
paper- october afternoon
cardstock- kraft

I hope everyon has a great day today!  I will be back tomorrow!! See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Love this! What a great idea. I have just saved cards my nephews have give me. I'll put them in plastic storage pouches in my albums or create pocket pages, but I love this idea of creating a layout too. :)
