Make someone's day!

Currently over at Big Picture Scrapbooking they are holding a Big Idea Festival.  I joined up (it is FREE by the way) and while it was a long shot to be able to keep up with a project a day (which I can't) I thought there would be some good ideas.  The first one was all about Making someone's day and writing letters.  It is so nice to get a personal letter.  I used to write lots of letters (way back) as I had two pen friends and my grandparents living far away.  I treasure the letters they sent me in return and still have them all. 

I recently received a lovely letter after sending an exploding box as a belated gift to an Aunt.  I will treasure that letter and also plan to use it as hidden journaling on a page of my Aunt's special celebration.  The exploding box was a kit created by Robbi Bell.  I thoroughly enjoyed creating it.
 A snapshot of some contents follow. 

It is so nice to do something for someone who really appreciates it. 

Back to Big Picture's Big Idea Festival.....  I made this little set of cards for a friend for her birthday and she can then also 'make someone's day' by giving them to someone else.
 and tucked in was a little Gift Voucher available at "Embellish It". 
 I made the little box with my new Martha Stewart scoring pad.  I think this will be very useful for envelopes and boxes.

 and included are 6 mini cards based on my 'add on' to the recent Heritage class I taught at Raincliff.  A great way of using up the little bits left over from other projects.

My friend was very pleased with her present and I hope the recipients of her cards will be happy to.  I challenge you to "make someone's day' with a letter or a card.

At Big Picture it is up to Day 5 already - the days are flying by but today's challenge is to scrap something that makes you happy.  Will have to see if I have time.   I am enjoying lots of laughs and cuddles with little Z and have just acquired some gorgeous photos taken by a photographer so have plenty to play with. 

I hope your weekend is going well. .  Well that is all for today - off to the scrap room while DD and DH watch the rugby. .

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  Until next time....
