Life is Great Layout
by Ro Phillipsen



Halloween Layout
by Melinda Spinks

These tiny little cards and envelopes are just the cutest things and so easy to use for projects other than their intended purpose. I decided to place them on may layout as mini photo-frame for each of my three sweet children, and then flip the lids to reveal what really lurks beneath... their 'special' faces fit for Halloween.
