I am always hating the last second scramble to whip up some thank you cards after birthdays.

Well, today, I had a jiffy of an idea (lol). I am sure you are like "DUH", but here goes! LOL!

Most of the extended family who sent a present for our 2 year old's birthday don't see her that often. They live in Indiana or whatever and we're in Texas. So I thought instead of sending a traditional thank you card, I would shrink the layout (http://www.digishoptalk.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=4735&cat=500&ppuser=88) I made of her birthday! I printed it at 4x4 on a 4.25x8.5 cardstock base. And then on the inside I wrote, "Thank you for your (insert birthday gift here) for Katie. As you can see, she had a fabulous day! etc...."

Anyway, I am sure this is a total duh idea, but maybe this will inspire someone else out there! :)

That is a great idea! Were you totally amazed at how nice it looked at the 4x4 size? I recently got the bright idea to make a "portfolio" of 4x4s in a 4x6 album just so I could carry it around. I love the miniatures, and couldn't believe I could still read all the journaling. Anyway, sorry for hijacking! Great idea!

YES! Totally!!! My inlaws are gonna freak over it! And my mom is asking me "so what do you DO with your l/o since they're fake and not paper?" (that's a paraphrase :lol: ). I'm like DUDE, you can do SO much with them!!! SO MUCH!!!

Great idea!

Last year I made digital thank you cards of my son using pictures of him playing with the birthday presents he had gotten. That was first foray into digital and it didn't go well which is why I didn't try again for about 10 months.

Your idea sounds better since you could use the same layout each time.

That is totally genius. I wouldn't put the word "duh" anywhere near it. :)
