Can I Get a Woot Woot?

Hello Mosh Poshers. Happy Monday. It's Jenny checking in with this week's installment of Manic Monday. The day when we share ideas on how to fit scrapping into our busy lives. Today I'm going to combine a little ad inspiration with a shortcut. Easy as pie...

So, I'm so not the greenest person around. But, I got this mailer from Gymboree and I just knew I had to do something with it. At first, I was going to use it for inspiration for a card for this month's gallery. The next thing I knew I was altering it into a little journal for my kids to add in some of their favorite moments from our trip to Hunt Club Farm earlier this month. It totally took on a mind of it's own and I just couldn't finish it fast enough. I can't wait to let my kiddos loose on it and get those memories recorded before they're gone.

The mailer was super cute as is. It had 9 punched out circles backed by tiny square pictures. And opened up as a cool tri-fold card.

I replaced the tiny Gymboree pictures with squares/rectangles of patterned paper and square/rectangular pictures of my own. I love how quick this was to put together with some scraps from my November kit and some leftover wallet-size prints.

I also covered up the rest of the Gymboree ad space. I included title areas and areas to journal. I even pulled out this cute Heidi Swapp stamp from an older Mosh Posh kit.

Super simple little journal/miniBook, BUT it took me no time to put together and my kiddos will love getting to journal it for me. Alright, that's all I have for today. See you Friday...
