Easy Collage Gift


My oldest daughter is obsessed with Paris at the moment.  She's taking french in school and loves it!  So for Christmas I made her a collage.

With just a dollar store frame and a few scrapbooking items this was a very inexpensive and quick gift.  I got a few of the pics from The Graphics Fairy.  The other items were scrapbook papers and sticker sets.
Now I've been commissioned by my eleven year old for one of London.

What a great idea! I want to do one with Santas as I have a large Santa collection. Oh, and I'm thinking maybe one with a princess theme for my new granddaughter. Thanks for motivating me. ~Debbie
