Junior Legal Pad Wish Lists

YAY; it's WEDNESDAY! I wouldn't normally be this excited about a Wednesday, but since it's the last day of the work week and Thanksgiving is tomorrow; I am...LOL!!! After I finished making the card I posted yesterday, I decided to keep out my Be Merry patterned paper and die cuts to make my girls each a little "wish list". SCS has a great tutorial for these, which you can view it here. I bought a pack of junior legal pads at my local office supply store, had them cut them in half (vertically), and I was on my "merry" way...LOL!!! I used Regal Rose and Garden Green cardstock. The green wish list is stamped with the PAPERTREYink Polka Dot Basics set. So, why didn't I stamp the other one? Well, my five year old was looking over my shoulder the entire time I was making hers saying "Are you done yet Mommy, are you done yet?". Since I was pretty sure that her wish list wouldn't stay in one piece very long, I decided to forgo stamping the background and just finish it up as quickly as I could for her...LOL. It's hard to see in the photo, but I added Crystal Stickles to parts of the die cuts (you can click on the photo for a larger view) and the glimmer ribbon is from the Christmas Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions. My girls were SO excited when I gave them each their wish lists; they couldn't wait to start using them. So, before they did, I snapped a picture of them. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful day!



These turned out really cute, Laura - great for the kids to make all the little lists they like to make. I didn't know I could have the office supply store cut the pads like that - gonna have to see if I can get my Staples to do that for me!


- and your girls are absolutely precious!
