Welcome to the Inkspirations Christmas Gift Blog Tour! You've probably just arrived here from Kirsty's blog (isn't she awesome? Yes. Yes, she is.) You can either keep following forward from here, or click back wards. You can also start from the beginning at the Inkspirations Blog. Either way, you're in for an Inkspirations treat!
I have to make my post kinda quick because I've spent the whole evening fixing, updating, and cursing my laptop after having dropped it today. Nice. It's late and I'm a cranky, tired lady right now. So, on to the gifties!
These are clipboards (retired SU!) that I made for Logan's K teacher and for Skyler's daycare providers. There's not much on them that isn't retired so I'm going to forgo the typing of the recipe. This square head needs to go to bed so I can avoid strangling a teenager at work tomorrow. ; )
Click on over to Carrie Gaskin's blog to check out what sheer gorgeousness she's come up with. Don't forget to leave a little love to all the rubber nerd participants! Thanks for stopping by! Ske-doosh.

I made this sketchbook for one of my students that has a habit of scribbling and doodling all over his books instead of doing actual schoolwork. He reminds me of me, actually. LOL! So, I made him this small sketchbook so that he can have something to doodling in without me giving him the stink eye all the time. ; )
Come on back on Friday and check this out:

This is my wicked awesome son, Logan. He's a wonderful boy that has always had wonderful compliments for all of my scrapbooking and card making efforts. Whenever I let him look at my albums, he's always very careful to make sure his hands are clean and that he doesn't bend the pages. He can frequently be heard telling his brother, Skyler, not to touch the pages as they look together. He's kind of my bouncer in that respect.
We, as papercrafters, know how much time and effort goes into the projects we make, right, dear readers? I know that I'm always hovering when people handle my works of art. So, to make an effort to unclench a bit, I thought I'd make Sweet Logan a mini album all his own. One that I can give to him and let him do what he wants with it. No hovering. No hand washing.
I gave it to him last weekend when I finished it. I said, "Here Logan. Mama made you something." I then handed it to him. He opened it and stared at every page. Made sweet comments. Asked questions about the various photos. Showed it to his brother and father. He then handed it back to me, with a big smile on his face and said, "Here you go, Mama." I replied, "No, Logan. It's yours. You can do whatever you want with it."
The look on his face was priceless.
He asked me if he could have a Ziploc bag to put it in and he has looked and re-looked at it a thousand times since. It is still intact and in no way damaged. He's taking care of it and I'm incredibly proud of him. :)
Here's the mini album:
I'm not even going to *try* to put the recipe here for you all. There's so much stuff jammed into this puppy that I'd be here for a week. I will, however, tell you that I used the retired simply scrappin' kit , Hoppy Memories.
I'm planning on making card inserts with stories written on them for the pockets...someday soon. :)
