Happy Birthday Mommy!

My mom's birthday was Thursday, this is what I made her: 
I'm really happy with how it turned out, it was really a lot of fun to make and of course I learned a few things.  (Bind it before you put big bulky items on so that you can actually get it in the bind-it-all!  The weren't where I was going to punch the hole but they made it difficult to slide the paper to be punched.)  I also loved the effect that heat embossing on chipboard does.  My numbers were not all black, I think they some were gold, glitter purple, and silver.  I just used some versamark and black embossing powder (twice) and away you go!  It turned out great!  and the best part she loved it!  Now I just need to print out this years pictures......

What a great gift idea! Your mom was bound to love it because ....1)you made it with your own two hands and 2) it was loaded with pictures of her beautiful grandchildren! I hope she had a happy birthday.
