Birthday Gift

Hello Folks! Hope you had a great weekend! Mine was AWESOME, it started out with a Friday night in my Pinkalicious Craft Room working on my friends Bday gift. Saturday spent most of the day cleaning then packed a bag for a trip to the beach after after dinner. Friday was my DH and I's 1st year anniversary of our first date! Yep, for those of you who don't know me too well, my DH proposed to me after only a few weeks of knowing me, a fairy tale come true! OK, back to the weekend, so we went to Ruth Chris's Steakhouse and it was AWESOME! We will definitely be going back in August for Andy's birthday (mine is just another week away, he he). We then headed to Galveston for a night's stay then spent some time on the beach on Sunday. It was a great time although we weren't too smart in that we didn't use the proper sunscreen (which we had with us) and so we came home "RED"!

So, now let's move on to the birthday gift I made for my dear friend Kara, mother of two beautiful twins! I have taken a few pics to show you how it turned out, I think it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself! I used an inspiration from both Ali Edwards and Nichole Heady, mine was much more like Nichole's version of Ali's book. I had all the the supplies on hand minus the photos that I snagged from her Snapfish account, thanks to the help of her hubby. I didn't have a book on hand the size I needed and so I took some cardboard I had on hand and cut it down to the size I needed and covered it with paper. It was a little tricky and so it's not perfect but that is what gives it character right? I then took the photos and made three different sections. The first I cut down to 4x4, the second to 4x5 and left the third section as 4x6's. I used more photos then what Nichole called out in her book, it was so hard to edit! I will save you from the rest of the details. Here are some photos, enjoy.
