When You Need Something Special...

My Mom just celebrated a big milestone birthday.  I planned a big surprise party for her.  Part of the surprise was a fun album I made for her, from her whole family.  I wanted to have a picture of each member of our family with a note from them.  Well...since I wouldn't see a lot of the family until the day of the party...I had to be able to add the note last minute.  SOOOOOO...PROJECT LIFE to the rescue!  I ended up making her a 6x8 album, and everyone got their own page.  It went together really quickly and I'm super pleased with the results!  I kept everything really simple and didn't use much more than the Happy Times Project Life by Stampin' Up! Card Collection & Accessories, and the Gold Glitter Tape roll (FREE Sale-A-Bration item).

Here is the cover I glammed up a bit...



And the first page I wrote my mom a little note...


Then a couple of the pages (this was before everyone wrote their notes...so picture those on the blank cards)...




Then I had extra cute pics of everyone that I wanted to include...so I added those all at the end in some extra pages.  And look at that perfect card highlighting the extra pictures.  


It ended up being quite a fun album and helped the most amazing woman in my life...my Mama!...feel special on her special day...which was the whole point!  So thanks, Project Life!
