Happy Birthday Maddie

It's the 10th September and it's Maddie's 30th Birthday, I can't believe those years have gone by so quickly - I don't think she can either. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADDIE - LUV YA.

I also need to say happy birthday to my Mum who is 81 today, what a lovely present she had in 1980 when Maddie was born. It's also Malcome's birthday, cousin to Ken and Vicky's birthday, who is the daughter of some very good friends of ours. In fact I have 9 birthdays this month, it just so happens 4 of them are today!!!!

Well here is Maddie's finished book. I posted the front cover on Sunday, this is now the rest of it.
The inside cover and first page, grunged, stamped and collage.

The next page distressed and stamped. The following section is an envelope also distress etc in which she can put receipts etc.
The other side of the envelope.
The inside back cover.
The very back cover.
Showing the inside pages altogether.
and of course it is ......

I hope she likes it. Don't forget she is the girl with a degree in graphic design and can be very critical -
in a nice way of course.

I have to say I am very pleased with it, so that's something.

Happy birthday if you have a birthday too today.

Take care. Luv B xxxx

It turned out beautifully, Brenda. Do let us know her reaction when she opens it!
It is a treaure for life where she can record life's important moments or hide little secrets and wishes in the envelope you have bound in there.

Really lovely, thanks for sharing.

Hi Brenda, the book is really beautiful and I am sure your daughter will love it. September is my Mum's birthday too, but she wouldn't let us broadcast her age! Enjoy all the celebrations.
