What A Nice Gift and What I Made...

So I am really bad.....I meant to post this right after I got the gift and made the album but of course I forgot.  I went out of town and was in such a rush that I thought I would just post it when I got home but I forgot.  Please forgive me Loretta.  
On with the post....

Loretta makes these lovely $5.00 kits each month that is full of just greatness.  I wrote her to ask her about them so she sent me one and on top of that she added A LOT of extras and as the cherry on top the tag album she created as an example.  I was so surprised... you have to stop by and say hi and tell her that I sent you.  Her blog is Stamping with Loretta.  She not only has her blog but she has some tutorial on YouTube so it is totally worth it to check her out.

Here is her album that she sent me:
Here is mine that I made with the supplies that she gave me.  I liked so many things from Loretta's album that I actually photo copies a couple of the stamps from her album to use on mine.  The cover is clear transparency over the chipboard tag.  I covered all the chipboard  tags with pattern paper and on the front cover sprayed it with mist. On the third page it shows that one of the pages was actually a transparency.  The back cover is again a transparency over the chipboard tag.  I used green mist on back and wrote a little message to my friend that I gave this to under the flower.
