Presties for Besties

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I can't believe Christmas is gone for another year. Seriously, I felt cheated out of a holiday this year. Being sick, being away from family, etc. etc. It was such a weird holiday. But I'm hopeful that next year will be better! 

Anyway, I finally was able to sit down to work on some Christmas presents for my girls. Each of them got a decorated tray + another scrappy present.

This first tray is for Ms. Tara. I loved this photo of her and Kim. And yes, it's a bit weird that I didn't put one of the two of us, but she has plenty of those.

For this tray, and the rest of them, I pulled my colors from the photos themselves. The color combo on this one was cream/brown/pale pink/green/gold. I riffled through my stash for products & papers in those colors and made this cute lil tray.

Here's Kim's present. It's a group shot from her Bach. I took it on a timer & am so glad we were able to get all of us in front of our cute little farmhouse. Don't you love that its red with turquoise trim?!

Red, turquoise and purple made up my color combo for this one. I hated the idea initially but now I'm glad Tara made us all wear purple.

And finally, here's Susie's tray. I snapped this photo at my birthday brunch & found out later it was the first photo of the three of them all together.

Loved the dark blues they were wearing next to Lauren's cute purple dress. I had fun mixing those colors plus some creams. And I really love the quote on that October Afternoon sticker. She's their little flower!

I loved how these presents turned out. They're all personalized, inexpensive to make (I only had to buy the trays) and easy to put together. I might have to do this again next year!

cheers & besos,
