A Birthday Book for my parents' 80th!

I made this book to commemorate the family reunion we had in Michigan this summer in honor of both of my parent's 80th birthdays. The cover is pretty simply covered chipboard.

Inner pages are covered chipboard and envelope pockets.

In each of the envelopes is a card with a family photo of each of the individual families who were present at the reunion. Inside the card they each wrote a birthday message to Mom and Dad.

There were so many photos from the weekend to pack into this book that I had to make some small and quite a few overlapping. However, I think it came out OK as far as capturing the weekend.

Here's the birthday couple. Sweet, huh?! Happy 80th Birthday, Mom and Dad!

Thanks for looking.

Finally - something to post!!

This is an address directory I did for my family. Made one for each family household (18 of them!) on my side of the family. I used all different papers (I think there might have been 1 duplicate) for each book. There are Hambly transparency dividers and the tabs are labeled for each of my siblings.

I know they will almost immediately need updating but it was fun putting them together for everyone. It will be handy when Christmas card time comes too.

This is the back cover.
It's so good to be creating again!!!!
