the forgotten album...

sad title isn't it?  I made this FUN album for a DT call, at the time I was just having fun playing and creating.  Then I thought I could give it to my parent's for their anniversary (since they are the ones in the pictures)  WONDERFUL idea!  Guess what I forgot which day was their anniversary!  I gave it to my mom a few weeks late but she loved it and that makes it all worth while.

supplies used:
pattern paper: Pebbles
buttons: Jenni Bowlin
stickles: ranger
button: American crafts
punches: ek success, fiskars 
sewing


I LOVED how this turned out.  The pattern paper is Pebbles, I have some Fancy Pants chipboard in there, and Jenni Bowlin buttons.  See the glittery hearts?  I painted those with acrylic paint and then topped them with stickles, it really made them POP!
My mom is so cute she told me that she has had compliments on this where she has it displayed at work. :)
Today is going to be a BEAUTIFUL day outside, really like winter time in the desert--makes it worth living here!
Thanks for popping in for a visit--take care!
