Birthday Celebration Mini Scrapbook

As you may recall, I made a Flip Flop Book for my husband's Grandma's 90th birthday. I had compiled some great pictures of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as photos of Grandma herself (including one with Grandpa when he was alive, surrounded by grandkids.) I started thinking about how my husband's mom, aunts, sisters and cousins might like copies of these photos too. So I made a few collages with my favorite Shutterfly software (see the link in this post) and made nine sets of the photos. I put them in these mini scrapbooks with Amberly Grace paper to send out for Mother's Day and I love how they came out! The paper is so soft and pretty. I think the Pemberly Bay Matchbooks would have been beautiful too, if I didn't have so many to make. If you'd like to make a book similar to this, try of TAC's matchbooks. They go together in a flash!

PS- That's my husband in the photo dancing with Grandma. I had mentioned in my previous post that he was traveling New York to surprise Grandma at her birthday celebration (we live in Colorado.) When he walked into her birthday party, with his arms full of white roses, she said he looked like a vision right out of heaven. Isn't that awesome?
