Creative Guide 2015 Secret Santa Reveal

Hi everyone -

Today is an exciting day for the Creative Guides over at A Vintage Journey.  It is the day we finally get to reveal who our Secret Santa is and who we made a gift for.  We drew names in October to see who we were gifting.  I got the lovely & talented Julia Aston of Create with Me.  I sent Julia the Tim Holtz Folio I made in my class with Tammy Tutterow.  You can read all about it in my post by clicking here.  Here is my gift to her:

The postman brought my gift in November from the super creative Jennie Atkinson of  Live the Dream.  I couldn't wait to open it - so I didn't.  I had a lovely early Christmas card and gift of the beautiful folio shown below.  It has lots of tags for photos,  the colors are so soft, and one of Jennies trade mark flowers.  I just love it and plan to add our holiday photos of 2015.  This way I will have a wonderful reminder of Jennie each year when I look back at this treasure.

To see all the gifts, stop on over at A Vintage Journey here.  Brenda has graciously put together a post showing all the wonderful gifts and revealing the names of all Secret Santas.  
Have a fabulous and fun week,
