Last minute Christmas gift idea

Here is a last minute Chritmas gift I wanted to share with you. It is one of those cheap calendars from the
Dollar Store. Just do a collage over it and voila, you have a nice present for your friends. The image is
from Paper Whimsy. By the end of the year it could be used as a Glue Book.
Are you all done with  your Christmas shopping? Sorry, but I'm running behind visiting you and will try to
catch up tonight. Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for all your lovely comments.

                                   Hugs and love,

Hi Marie, Gorgeous gift idea. I have altered such books from Poundland for my own use but not as a gift idea - love it. I am still busy wrapping gifts and organising any that require to be mailed, but I am nearly complete. Isn't it exhausting LOL. Wishes. Lynne
