I have had a Danish pen pall since I was about 10 (I'm now 36) and recently found some of here old letters. She was (and still is) always incredibly creative and her letters were full of booklets and small pictures or stickers she made herself. I loved getting her letters and still do. So inspired by our past I made her a 'book of me' booklet and small photo booklet using some of my scrapbooking stash ( I am still to start on an actual scrapbooking page but I am getting there...):
Book of me: front, some inside pages and back
I've made a grown up version that includes the basics (favourite food, colours etc.) but also some more indepth stuff (where is my heart, place that are dear to me, how to do I recharge my spirit). I like the tree stamp on the front, the papers and the color combinations. And I love the back page where I used up all the scraps. I'm not too
sure about the hand writing, maybe I should have printed it....
Picture booklet: inside and wrapped up
This was unplanned. I was just going to print a load of pictures from the last few months on photo paper and add it to the letter. But when I saw how boring that turned out I got some more paper and stickers out and put it in a small harmonica layout. I love the orange ribbon around it:-)
Everything ready to be sent off (the wrapped package has some scrapbooking embellishments in it, we love giving each other presents).
My inspiration, my friend Trine's letter from the eighties, top left corner is her 'book':
