Happy Birthday Album

I FINALLY got to finish Bella's Happy Birthday Album. I had gotten this album from the Scrapbook Obsessions kit Last month. I knew it would be PERFECT to do Bella's Birthday party photos in. So take a look.
I used Basic Grey Cupcake line on the album. Tim Holtz Grungeboard with Making memories paints and crystal effects over that.

I used a sticker from Carolees (Adorn it) Prima flower, doodlebug jewel and a Making Memories Jigsaw number 5 with colorbox inks to color it with. I used deco scissors to edge my photo with.

I used a reminisce birthday girl sticker, basic grey buttons, doodlebug flowers and rub ons from provocraft. I tied basic grey ribbon and some tiny rick rack over the H on the letter P. (to cover a boo boo lol)

I used a bo bunny letter b and pulled the top layer off. colored it with colorbox inks. Fancy pants chipboard hearts and jewels from hobby lobby.
love elsie epoxys, adorn it sticker, junkitz flower, all my memories little metal embellishment.

The last two pages I put the journaling on. These pages were larger so more could be done. I chose to use smaller photos so I could really show how much fun and the activities they did at the party. I used basic grey buttons and some rick rack to garnish the page.
The journaling reads "You had so much fun at your 5th birthday party. It was a beautiful day, perfect for going to the park. Your friends from school,Eva,(your very best friend) along with Grandma, Aunt Diane and Uncle David joined us for a fun filled day. You had a princess cake along with a crown pinata. I think everyone had a wonderful time. I know you did.. You were so tired, daddy had to carry a very tired princess to the car to go home."
The last page just has a few photos of miscellaneous things they did. Making memories tag, fancy pants chipboard, basic grey buttons, Adorn it sticker, and making memories tiny letter stickers (so cute!)
(The Basic Grey Paper and most embellishments came from paper discount store)

I wanted to put BIRTHDAY across the front some way creative but wasn't sure how to attach it. Colette a Very talented scrapper (and buddy of mine) on the Scrapbook obsessions design team had added a word to hers like this. I thought it was a brilliant idea. I did mine a little bit differently but the idea came from her so I wanted to give her the props for it. You can see Colette's GORGEOUS version of the Happy Word Book Album Here.

We had a fun filled day at the Jones residence yesterday. Bella pulled out ALLLLL her little people (groan) funny thing is... I was just getting ready to box them up to take to consignment. It is like she has "throw toys out Esp" or something.She has had these since she was about 1 year old and her collection has GROWN to substantial status. WE have a huge tote and a basket full of these things.
Her imagination has grown so much in those 5 years. She also added a few "EXTRA" toys in with the mix. I loved listening to her and playing with her with these. SOOO CUTE.
I wasnt so sure what to think of all the people being corralled in the fences and the animals outside the fence with Ninja turtle as the gate keeper. I asked her what that was all about.
She said "Don't be silly mommy, You know they havin' a dayunce (dance) Pawty (party)!!!! How silly of me to think other wise huh?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Hey girl!! You really rocked this HAPPY album! Holy cow ... look at how cute, colorful, and cheery this thing turned out! Of course, you knew it would have to be that way ... Bella is so dang adorable that all your creations with pictures of her are WORLD CLASS CREATIVE! But, honestly .. this really turned out awesome!

Thanks for the cred, girl ... it wasn't necessary at all! I'm just soooo glad to see that you were feelin' well enough to let that mega-creativity of yours out to play!

.... my little 3 year old granddaughter, Breckin, has a new word in her vocabulary these days ... CUGE. A cross between cute and huge. It's so adorable when she says it that I haven't tried to correct her yet .. just lovin' hearing her too much. But ... I'll use her new word to describe the hug that I'm sending your way .... CUGE!!!
