Black Friday Blog Hop

Welcome to GabyCreates.com and to
The Black Friday Blog Hop
If you happen to be visiting and would like to start at the beginning
with Jen, click HERE ,
but if you just got here from Christel's blog, you are in the
right place!

I created a One Page LO
(yes, I know, I do love two-pagers, but...)

Using Kraft paper for a LO is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I can envision how much better it will look once I add the black and white picture of me shopping (Yes, that is how I dress to go shopping, NOT! lol) and the words Black Friday 2010

I also created a card

I am practicing my Copic skills, I can't wait to come back a year from now to this posting and see how much I have improved.  I also need to go shopping for a stamp with the sentiment "shop 'till you drop" or "happy shopping".
Thanks for visiting!!
