A few SEI projects

I got an awesome shipment of SEI stuff in the mail a few days ago and have been playing. I made a couple of scrapbook pages and a cute little notecard gift set using the Penelope's Potpourri kit. Here's a look at what I came up with...
You may recognize this layout as being very similar to another I did for a friend using the same picture. Well, I needed that picture in my own scrapbook, so I did this one for myself!! Here's a little closer view of the journaling pocket tag which reads "We spent Christmas Eve morning at Keawakapu Beach with good friends Lori and Mia. Dean had so much fun tormenting Mia and stealing all her toys. Little Mia was just adorable in her pink swimsuit!". I used Photoshop Elements 6 to enhance the photo to black & white, then "erased" part of the image to let the color of just the swimsuit show. If there's anyone out there who would like a tutorial on how to do this, please let me know and I'll post one.
I wanted to scrap a few more of the pics I had of my good friend Lori and her daughter Mia. I will be giving her this page.

And here's a cute little notecard gift set I made. It includes a box with belly band and 5 simple notecards that fit inside.
