Birthday Party Day #18

8th Grade Mom's Night Out!  About half the moms of my daughter's 8th grade class were there - 20+ moms.  Total fun.  Lots of delish food.  LOTS of alcohol; I did not do the Peach Schnapps Shots (say that three times fast, it would make for a good roadside sobriety test.)  Lots of talk about teenagers - the good, the bad and the ugly.  Lots of connecting with moms I haven't really seen or connected with since Matt was born.  I refuse to admit the headache I had this morning had anything to do with the drink I had last night - an awesome concoction that I need the recipe for.  It was like a Orange Creamsicle in a cup! 

Sorry, no good segue today.  Regifting.  Pros and Cons.  Personally, I'm not a huge fan, but if it's a quality item, and you aren't giving it back to the giver AND the present is one the person you're passing it to really wants (and you'd have bought it) anyway, go for it.  No opened packages people. 

Today, use something "regifted" on your scrapbook page.  This can be an item from a swap (remember those??), something someone passed on to you, or you can recycle; packaging, hang tags, etc.  I mean that's what regifting is really - recycling.

oh boy! This is awesome! I just pulled some snowy items from a swap that I've been wanting to use on a layout.

Added my link, "The Building Of A Snowman". Used swap items as described on my blog.

I used some buttons my Mom saved from clothes she gave away - recycled AND gifted :)

Hi Lori,
I've added a link to every day this week - I managed to get every prompt on the same layout. BUT ... blogger was being difficult today and my pictures weren't showing up so I added a link to my Picasa Web album. Here it is again
thanks for the fun!!
