Just a small gift scrapbook I put together as a birthday gift for my friend a few years ago. The photos are from a trip we took to visit a friend of mine in Canada (now her fiance!) and also some photos from when I visited her for Thanksgiving later that year. She requested that I blur out the photos of her and her friend that tagged along but my blur tool in PSP was being a pain so I just went with strategically placed buttons. Those aren't there originally.

I used a tri-fold coin folder I found at Walgreens in the $1.00 pile. I covered the entire thing with patterned paper and created larger pieces as focal points. I punched certain photographs with a hole punch to fit into the holes for quarters as well as using them on a (LUSH) newspaper ads for colorful embellishments to put all over the pages. Added some journaling and embellishments and voila! A scrapbook for my friend. She loved it.

So anyway, here's the photos (Note - I actually have nothing against Canada/Canadians, we just jokingly bitch about how horrible this trip/vacation was):
