Farewell {mini album + card}

10:39 PM

I get tons of e-mails every day at work and I'm sure you do, too. Many of them are just for info (or what I call business spam) and go pretty much straight into the recycle bin. And yet, sometime in summer, there was one of these e-mails that instantly caught my eye. The subject line contained a familiar name, the name of a dear colleague, and the e-mail was sent to give a heads-up that the person has given notice :( 

Fast-forward, her last day with the company happens to be this week. Eeek! So, what's a crafty girl gotta do? Of course making a farewell mini album and card so she never gets to forget us and to wishing her all the best for her new adventures :)

I prepared and embellished the pages so that fifteen of her closest coworkers each had a double page for their photos and journaling. Some of them took it further and glued a favorite recipe down or even hand-drew a picture.

With so many personal notes, I hope you understand I won't show you the inside pages en detail. However, before I wrote into the album, I took a picture of part of my double page:

Of course, there is also a card to greet her right from the desk on her last day.
