Am I really early? Or am I really late? -- featuring Scraptastic Club :)

Hi everyone :) 

So I wanted to share a little mini book I made :) 


We had a White Elephant gift game/exchange at work in December ... after I "lost" my gift pick during the game ... I was sooooooooo upset because I had "lost" the gift bag too!!  ... You see, I had HUGE plans for this bag ... 


And I whined, and I cried, and I whined, and I cried ... that noooooooooooo!! I wanted that gift bag!!! I had PLANS for that BAG!!!! PLEASE give me the bag back!!!

So the person that got my gift that I "lost" ... gave me the bag back!! Not the gift ... lol ... but the BAG!!! But that's ok ... I just wanted the bag!!! :) 

Because you see, I had this plan in my head :) 

I buy Christmas gifts all year long ... I start right after Christmas buying gifts for this year ... 

But there is a HUGE problem with doing that ... 

By the time Christmas comes around ... I have forgotten half the gifts I have bought! LOL :) 

So I wanted to make a mini book to keep a list of what I have bought so that I know by Christmas who still needs gifts and who doesn't :) 

So here is what I made to keep track :) 


The cover ... using the GIFT BAG I wanted :) 

 


 For the pages I used the December kit from Scraptastic Club :) 


On the inside page, I took the extra pages and put them in an envelope for future uses :) 

 
.


I took each person that we buy presents for and gave them a page -- then I listed 1 through 5 twice -- that way I can use this for two years in a row (and the extra pages I put in the envelope above will hold pages for years later!) 




I also didn't adhere the pages down -- I punched a hole in the side of each "name" page and stitched twine to hold my page in place ... that way after the two years are up ... I can easily replace the pages :)
