Gifts for a Friend

Good morning!!  I am starting my business math class today--and I'm a little nervous!!  It's always hard for me to go to class on the first day!  Mostly, I'm scared that I'll be older than the professor!!!  haha!!!  And, secondly, I don't want anyone to laugh at me!!  Oh well, I'll get over it!  I love taking classes, so I'll have to!!  (get over it, that is)

Before i go though, I wanted to share with you a gift I made for a friend.  She turned the big 4-0 on Friday, and the party was Saturday night.  The party consisted of wine tastings at 3 wineries, then dinner and more wine at another friend's house.  It was so much fun, and the food and wine was awesome!!  Anyway, she asked for no gifts, but I wanted to something!!  So, I made a wine journal for her to keep track of wines she liked, and then a picture frame--for a picture of that night with her friends!  (hey, she's 40 now, she may not remember it on her own!!! haha!!)

I made both using the Bella Rose Designer Paper--it matched perfectly with this frame I picked up at Hobby Lobby!!  Which matched her house perfectly!!  The "friends" is a rub on, so it will "float" in front of the picture.

Here's an up close of the wine journal.  I got the idea from an old issue of Paper Crafts magazine.  It was the Dec 2006/Jan 2007 issue, if you're wondering!

And, here's the inside.  The saying is right from the magazine, and the pages can be downloaded from their site as well!  (

And here's a closer shot of the frame.  Sorry it isn't the best picture, but I don't know how to avoid the glare on the glass!!

Enjoy your day, and wish me luck in my class!!

I LOVE this frame!!! It is soooo great and how awesome that it matches one from Hobby Lobby. I would love to make projects like this but I never seem to get it to pull together. You did an excellent job!
