LESSology Challenge #37 ~ Animal Kingdom




My step-daughter is getting married this July and she wants me to make something special for the gift basket with a request of incorporate The Grand Mesa Poem into the project.

I make a little photo book.......


I stamped deer all over kraft paper for the cover of the booklet because the last time we visited Grand Mesa, Colorado, we did see a few deers wandering...

{Photo: Grand Mesa, Colorada, January 2014}



and my recycling item is this cute polka dots tissue paper Ros used to wrap the present she sent me a while ago. Thanks Ros! : )


it went into the inside cover



the left panel is for the photo of the couple and then followed by the Grand Mesa Poem on the right



a few more pages for photos or personal notes


the sample book was sent to my daughter in law but she said she likes the color purple


so..... the updated version


I still like kraft and green, it is more Colorado, what do you think?


Hop over to LESSology and play along with us.

What a wonderful idea for a book at the wedding!! I think I like the green better too -- plus purple is hard to find in scrapbooking! LOL!!! I just think this is soooooooo beautiful!!!!!!!!

What a thoughtful, sweet, and beautiful gift, Kirsty! I was unfamiliar with that poem, but it is fabulous, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the little booklet you made to go along with it. Such a great idea to add the extra pages for photos, and I love the recycled tissue paper you added inside. You are so nice to change to color to purple for her, but I have to say I think the green works better, too! ;)

Wow, they are both gorgeous, the green is more traditional but I like the eggplant for its more modern style. Good job on it. ~Diane

Hello Kirsty,
How sweet this is, love the poem inside. I like the green better but can see how others would prefer their favorite colors at times. Such a treasure this will be for them.

Read your 2 posts below and amazed at those cute tags, so cute! YAY for May PL, way to go on keeping up and enjoying it. WOW, good for you cutting out sugar. It does get easier and is better for you. Stay strong my friend!!

I really like the green- you are right in that it captures Colorado. Your photos are lovely and the poem is sweet. I am sure that your daughter-in-law loved them both.
