So…  school is almost out.  One more day.  Kids get out at noon.  That cannot come soon enough.


Anyway, I was recently asked to create 2 scrapbook albums (nearly identical) as gifts for a friend’s daughter-in-law and her mother.  The books covered the grandchild’s first birthday.  Little girl, so we got to do it up right.  Very different creating things for a girl than a boy… I gotta say… a little more fun.  There’s lots more ‘stuff’ to use and you can make it as foo-foo as you want.  And, yes.  It is a technical term.


The theme of the birthday party was cherry blossoms, so I tried to replicate that is best as possible.  I had my friend group the pictures by subject/people and name everyone in them so I could create the pages in some form of order.  The biggest difficulty I had was trying to write about all these people—people I have not met.  But, I think we figured something out that would work.  This is the result:


This is the cover page.  I used Circle Circus to create a custom background “DSP” on whisper white for every page.  And, every color of PINK ink Stampin’ UP has.  I used melon mambo to back the pages.  The pictures are matted, again, in every color pink we have….  Then, cut out TONS of flowers with the big shot and embossed, rhinestoned, dazzling detailed, buttoned and ribboned everything that I could….(gotta love girlie…)

Here are a couple of the inside sspreads:



This was a fun project… Everything came together very well.  I was very happy with the results.  And, so was my friend and her family.  They were gifts for mother’s day….
