Birthday Party Album


The idea of using a "two-up" album, scrapbook-style, is not a new one, but I still think it's a great one! I have a really hard time scrapping event photos (like from birthdays and holidays), so an album like this where I can keep all the photos together for display, and still make pretty is perfect for me!

I used one of my favorite lines from Cosmo Cricket, Hello Sunshine, because it's very happy and great for boys and girls! I also added in some of my favorite Thickers (oooh they're on sale!), some Stickles, a few other stickers from my stash, and a little old school paper piecing! ;)
(These are the intro page to each party.)

I want to add a tab in each section of the book for each birthday party featured; as you can see, I'm not quite caught up on our birthdays (this picture is from a couple of years ago!). I'm also adding journaling cards in on each section to give a brief description of the party or anything else I want to add!
