Celebrate! Birthday Album

I want to start my post today by saying thank you to everyone who took the Catty Cruise over the weekend and anchored here to explore. I appreciate all the kind comments and emails you left for me... I enjoyed reading them all and I'm so happy that you liked what you saw! I'd also like to welcome all the new readers who have subscribed to my blog, I hope you stop by often. The whole crew of the Catty Cruise shared some wonderful projects, so if you haven't taken the cruise...you still can!

The other day I showed you the cover of a book I was making for my Aunt to hold photos from her surprise birthday party, and said I would share some of the inside pages when I was finished. Below is photo of cover and here is link to my original post telling what I used to create it.

I also said that I hoped to have it completed before Saturday so I could give it to her over the weekend...I'm happy to say that I got it all done...and she absolutely LOVED it! Here are a few of the inside pages.

I used the Circle Circus set to stamp many of the background pages and to create some embellishments. Colors used: Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie & More Mustard

See how nicely the retired Haiku paper works with the Circle Circus set? I wish it was still current...or that they made those patterns available in other colors. Oh well...at least I had some left for this project.

I also used the Party Hearty & Birthday Whimsey sets on many of the pages. On the pages that I used the Birthday Whimsy set I used the Whimsy jumbo wheel for the background pages and some striped DP that I had on hand that matched the colors I used.
My Aunt hosts almost all of our family parties each year and it was so nice to see her surprised at this special party that my cousin had for her. She got to enjoy everybody and not do any of the work...she LOVED it, yet felt a little lost at the same time. I'm so happy that she loved the album I created for her.

Have a wonderful day!

That little album turned out great! How cool that you did that for her. It will certainly be a gift she cherishes.
