Hi, welcome to my happy place....

One of my sister in laws recently celebrated a 'special' birthday, this is the card I made for her and a mini album

I used a white A4 card base and scored it to give me an A5

I typed the sentiments on my computer

On a separate piece of white cardstock  I brushed a well diluted Pixie Powder over the card, let it dry and stamped the cocktail glass.  The top of the card was die cut for a 'fancy' edge

The strawberry was coloured with 3 ProMarkers, I covered the glass with NuVo Drops then added 'dollops' of Diamond Stickles to imitate bubbles

I used a corner punch on all 3 corners 

Mounting foam was added to the main focal element then adhered to the card.  I used a black Micron pen to add a 'wavey' border and adhered a personal verse to the inside of the card

 The Album....

This cute little guy, out nephew, is now 17

The album is a trifold, with chipboard used for the front, back, centre and both spines, cut to size by my hubby

Mr F and I both love this particular photo of our nephew.  He's always loved sports and, up until approximately a year ago, was an avid footballer but has now turned his talents and passion to golf

I've left the page on the left blank in case my sister in law wants to use some of her own photos, I did add another photo to the bottom of this page

So cute!
 The page on the right is also left blank as I don't have any photos of their grandson and thought my SIL would like to add some of her own

This photo is on the centre page of the album that, when the album is closed, is the inside of the back page
This page flips over.  I added a pocket, made 3 tags for further photographs to be adhered to them and tucked them inside the pocket
A waterfall design for this last page
