Creative Ping Pongs

I really didn't have a whole lot of time to do this last night, but sometimes a girl just needs to be creative!! The boys just got their ping pong pics back and I felt like sharing them with family in a fun way, so here's what I came up with.....
I started with some manila "library book pockets" and "check-out cards." (by the way, I would have killed for these as a child, as I played library all the time and had to make my own cards...mom, why didn't you buy me these??!!) OK, what else?? Scraps of super cute school-themed paper and ribbon and string and such....
I covered bottom of the pockets with the paper and used ribbon and string to embellish. Then I matted the cards with scrap paper and added the picture to the card with the kids' info written on it.

Here's the finished product....I love to scrapbook, but I haven't done much of it lately. This just seemed like a quick project that wouldn't take the next 3 months and it sure did feel good to get that pent-up creative energy out!!
