And another album

Well, having done an album for my middle son, I thought that I should do an album for my eldest son - so here it is.

This one is a gatefold album which I hadn't realised would be so complicated as I wanted to match up the pages!!!
I used various papers throughout including DCVW, papermania, brads and gems along with my thickers and new rub ons from Royal & Langnickel.
This page says it all - we are family (from the sister sledge song) and is very apt.

This page is themed to match the fact my hubby and I both wore beige.

I really enjoyed using these papers as I cut them to fit the over the sides of the photos and to make a frame.
Behind the tag on the left hand side is a comment for my son and I love the fact it adds an interactive element to the album

These are the group shots and therefore titled family and friends
These pages are us dressed up for our evening party - for which the dress code was evening dress!!
These show my nieces (who came in to the song Sisters are doing it for themselves) hence the title!! and the right hand page holds a tag in a pocket (see I'm getting daring now) which has some more personal comments for my son.

These pictures show my husband welcoming everyone to the party and the right hand party The pictures on the right hand side are of me receiving a surprise present, a heart necklace - hence the copy of the design on the title page.

These pictures are of the dancing and our song - flying without wings which seemed to tie in to the photos.
On the back of these two inside pages is a personal letter to my son from me (but that remains hidden)
I am really proud of my achievement and would love to stay home and make albums every day but work unfortunately calls. I also need to make some cards as my scrapbooking seems to have taken over from that and I know that I need some cards!!
