Birthday Book-Finished

I finally finished the book and gave it to my friend at the surprise party on Saturday. We ended up staying for the party since we couldn't go to Disneyland because of rain. :( She was surprised and loved the book! It didn't take me 2 weeks to finish the book, it just took me 2 weeks to finally take pictures and post it!!

I added a lot more ribbon to this book's spine. I think I like it better this way.

I found these little charms at a LSS. I bought a bunch. They're so sweet and I think a great thing to add to these books. I'm always on the lookout for charms for this purpose.

I used Stickles to show off the embossing on the balloons and on the butterfly. The faces are from Peachy Keen Stamps. I used chalk to put the color on the cheeks. The paper dolls are meant to represent my friend and her husband.

I added the cat because the birthday girl has cats.

I embossed the tree and used evergreen Glimmerz on the entire upper part of the tree and then used teal Glimmerz to highlight the swirls.

For the flower I used Prima flowers and used this technique.

I wanted to make sure she had plenty of room for pictures so I made a pocket and put in a couple of tags. I used the same technique from above on these flowers too.

I used the same technique on the swirl embelishment. It's just a swirk I cut out using my Cricut.

Another tag.
I added Stickles to *Surprise* to make it pop.
I love comments!! Thanks for looking!
