Birthday Keepsake Flip Album

Over the weekend we celebrated a dear friends milestone birthday. She requested no gifts, so I kind of respected her wish. I made her this flip album that will contain photos from her party. (I made one for another friend a couple years ago when she hit the "big 5-0" and all my girlfriends told me then...we better all get one of those when we hit 50!) So here is the one I made for Bonnie.

I used the retired Thoroughly Modern DSP through out the album, so the color scheme you see here is what is used in those papers...Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, Rose Red and I also added Basic Black. I used the Designer Type Photopolymer Stamp Set (embossed in black) along with Daydream Medallions (embossed in silver) for the cover. Here is another photo with the embossing shining in the light.

After I get the photos into the book, I'll share some of the inside pages. I also made her a joke gift....a basic black (so it goes with everything & looks classy! haha) bedazzled, cone bra top so she can channel her inner Madonna!
You might be asking yourself why I would post this on a SU! themed blog? Well everything I used (except for the actual bra) is Stampin' Up! I cut large circles of of Basic Black card stock and cut up one side to the center, and folded it into a cone shape, which I adhered into place with Sticky Strip.. Then I "bedazzled" it with adhesive backed rhinestones and attached the cones to the bra using hot glue. For added fun I added the little 5-0 charms to each cup using fishing line so they dangled freely. Those were made from Silver Glimmer paper, sizzlets & small scalloped punch.

You cannot say I didn't support my friend as she hit her milestone birthday, right?
