One of my dear "Mommy-friends" threw her only daughter her 5th birthday party!!! 5!!!! I don't know how it happened or seriously...where the time went!! Anyhoo - it was a fun and romping kids gym party with lots of tumbling, dancing, zip lining, pizza and beautiful and delicious cake!!
I loved how the pictures came out and was inspired to do an accordion album with them. I had LONG ago ordered the pre-cut inserts along with the tins at Oriental Trading Company. It was SUCH a fun project and I can't wait to do another one!!! The impression these make when you give them as a gift is priceless...truly. I purposefully distressed a lot of the edges, photos, embellishments and really adhered things much more securely than I would if it was going to sit on a coffee table somewhere so that when the birthday girl gets her hands on it I don't want her to worry about it breaking or something falling off of it. Word has it...she was groovy on it ;)
Happy darling RTM!!! I hope you enjoy your album!!!
