The Birthday Gift....

I promised I would show you the other photo album I made last week. I was at my Mother in Laws yesterday and I snatched it up. I had gotten the photos developed and wanted to put them in the book for her. I"ll share a couple of those with you also. Since it was an Important birthday I liked the them of "Time". I glitzzed the book up with my favorite gold craft paint and some rhinestones. Two of my favorite things to use.
I really like using the black and creme papers. When I add the gold paint I think it looks quite elegant. This combination works great for a book for a male or female.
Time fllutters by...Isn't that true. Sometime way to fast. This is the inside of the book.

The wide ribbon had a polka dot print. I got the ribbon in the $1.00 bin at Michaels Crafts. Oh, how I love to find the perfect ribbon in that bin. I could spend an hour digging through the large bin for the perfect selection. The ribbon was glued down with a button and rhinestone adding a bit more Bling Bling.

I had to post a few photos that I added to the book. This was the guest of honor at the party, my mother in law. Don't my in laws make a wonderful couple?
Here's my sweetie with me. I love having our picture taken together. It's just another memory that I can look back upon and treasure...
I always enjoy making a gift that can be cherished. I have always thought that giving a gift that was created by your own hands had so much much more meaning and thought put into it. Next time you need a gift, use the talents you have been blessed with to make your own "Creation From The Heart".

I am loving all your stuff. I tried clicking on the tab for your Etsy store, but it wasn't working for me. Do you have things for sale right now?

Again, I'm amazed. You create things with such love and a genuine
desire to please people. I am in awe of your talent. I'm excited about the class tomorrow!
