18th Birthday Book Card.............


Phew, it's been a busy week, with lots of celebrations, including our 25th anniversary, my birthday and last but not least, Paige's 18th. I can't believe my youngest is 18!!!!!! She had a wonderful day, 21 one of us went to Drayton Manor Park and Zoo and hit the rides then had a big family picnic.

I'm going to show you the card, I made for Paige. I used the tutorial from my friend, Gina's blog. Paige loves 50's fashion and loved her card.


After doing the construction of the book, I started decorating, the front cover is using some dress making pattern papers, sorry not sure what company it is, I found it in my stash. I cut a square of red gingham on the front with added "18" chipboard and some tape measure ribbon.



The inside is decorated with G.C.D. Melody Ross Homespun Chic, I love the dresses.



I adhered the tape ribbon around the front of the book and added a little jar of buttons and some cotton reels.


It's week 4 of Our Beautiful World and the theme is DETAILS, so here's a close up of the inside of the card.


Here's a few photo's of the birthday trip.













we got a bit wet on Storm Force 10

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the week, I hope to be back tomorrow with some FO's.

Looks like a fun day ... how I wish I could sit cross legged like your sweet daughter! The ride shots are fabulous though I have a fear of heights and even seeing them made me queasy ... you are brave!
