I made this album, which will be the end of year present for my daughter's teacher. Our school year ends just days before Christmas for us in Australia, so in a way this is her Christmas and end of year present too. Inside the album, I wrote the teacher some thank you messages, and added some of my favourite teacher quotes. 



1. To start with, I painted a Want2Scrap Mixed Media Album white, using Gesso and white acrylic paint. 
2. I then covered the pages using Donna Salazar Designs Natural Beauty paper collection
3. I added flowers and laser cut frames from Manor House Creations, as well as chipboard Alphabet by Donna Salazar from the Fun & Funky collection. 
3. I finished it off with Clearsnap Donna Salazar Designs Mixd Media Inx and Clearsnap Smooch Spritz Sprays








I hope you liked my handmade gift!! The next person on your list is...
