To be honest, I really do not like doing Kris Kringle. Some people are cruel, some are tasteless, some just cannot be bothered and put no thought into it. This year I got a recipient, who is going on 12 months leave without pay to join her partner in Brisbane. She is not into craft at all and I am slightly hesitant to provide this Kris Kringle to her because of this, but I thought, well 12 months off, she should have some memories she may like to capture, so, I took to the front of a pale pink scrap album with my alcohol inks, added some ribbon and did some pages, with mats (not adhered) and added some wording on how to scrap book.
I guess time will tell as to whether she uses it or not. Here it is along with the note I added on a transperancy..
Collect some memories of 2008
This comes with instructions
so don’t feel bad
See the little stick that looks like lipstick
in your handbag
It’s called glue!
See the mats for the photo’s
They’re 4 x 6
Cut down your photos so they fit
1/4 inch margin all around
your photos will look great
Do NOT frown!
Just remember to add a little note
for each photo, so when you return
it will tell a story to all us folk!
