On a jet plane

My step-daughter Leighia has been out in New York City since Wednesday with her mom. They are flying back today! Leighia was really good at tormenting me with text and photos of NYC (J/K I loved everyone).  My dream has always been to see a Broadway play and see the Macy Thanksgiving Day parade! Well, she saw two plays- Chicago and The perfect crime. She said they were both amazing! Leighia also posted some photos on facebook of things they did. I promptly stole her photos (evil laugh). Did some photo magic and made made her this mini book. I got the instructions for how to make this last weekend when I was over at Scrapbook News and Review. I am getting ready to run it over and put it in her mailbox, hoping that I do not get arrested. LOL!


The whole book


The inside- Page 1


Page 2-3


Page 4-5


Pages 6-7


Page 8 and back of book


These are the pages that go inside the pages- since they all have pockets. The backs of these I left a spot for Leighia to journal about her trip or add more photos if she wants! Hope is she is pleasantly surprised and likes the book (fingers crossed)!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We got snow storm on Saturday and they say more is on the way tomorrow! BOO!

Thanks for stopping in! Have a wonderful Monday!
