My 1st Ustamp project

Well the kids and I are back safe and sound from visiting Jackie and her family in Canberra. We had a fabulous time with them all and it all went way too quickly. Saying good-bye a 2nd time was still so painful especially for my 3 year old daughter. I think she finally understood what was happening. She's realised that her Auntie Jack lives in a different house, a long drive away and she just didn't want to go home. Yep, the tears flowed again!
I'm sure most of you would like to see what we got up to and what we created but I'm going to tease you a bit longer yet. It's still so painfully raw leaving AGAIN and I want to highlight the good times. So STAY TUNED!!
Here is a project I made today to take my thoughts away to my partner who is deployed at the moment.
A quick and easy project from Ustamp. This is called a "Love You Fun Fold Out" which was created by Jenn Picard. (Dream Team Member from Canada).
I joined Ustamp for some inspiration when my mojo went on holidays :)

This is how it would sit open when on display.
The paper is SU Parisian Breeze. It's a thicker card so is perfect for these kinds of projects.
I've matted the photos in Very Vanilla and Kraft cs from SU.

When you open the back section, you will find an area to write a personal message.

And lastly, this is the back closed by a brad.
Told you! Quick and easy. Well, it would have been if my printer hadn't decided to have a spat! lol. When in doubt (and before you throw it out the front door!), restart your computer and begin all over again. Hey, it worked!!

I'll be posting this off to my partner along with his favourite (not mine!) chocolate coated aniseed rings. Blah! A little something I brought back from Canberra. Nooo, don't mention Canberra again!

Hope you're all well and I hope our Aussie bloggers had a great Australia Day!

Keep creating, Kylie xo.
