Extra Extra

This is a gift wrapped newspaper for our newborn nephew.  The idea was to send a newspaper from the town you live in that was published on the baby's date of birth.  Isn't that a cool idea.  Better yet, the nursery has a Newsies paperboy theme.  I felt the need to decorate the paper before putting it in the mail. I wrote a little message on the back of the ticket journal tag.  The colors are mint green, gold and brown.  This is included in the Unity Stamp Company's Friends With Flair projects.


Tools used include: Unity Stamp Co. Kit Of The Month Everyday Fairytale scroll stamp.  Ranger coffee archival ink, K&Company paper, Martha Stewart Crafts ribbon, Jaded Blossom candies and charm dies, punch, Tim Holtz ticket and cording.

Thank you for visiting. Please share your kind comments. I hope you will follow my crafty blog while you are here.  Have a wonderful weekend.
