Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start here! If you came from Janet of Works of Heart then you are in the right place!

Here are the products I used for this the mini album and decorative container::

I recycled a container that had chocolate covered pretzel sticks in it - these types of containers are fabulous to use for foodie Christmas gifts! They made fantastic Hostess gifts around the holidays!

I recycled an old Arthur board book to create the mini album (I'm not completed finished yet). It had more pages than I needed so I glued some of the pages together. These make great gifts for family and friends. I am going to tuck notes and pictures behind the Picture My Life cards.
