Happy Mother's Day!

As you already know, my mom EXPECTS HOMEMADE gifts whenever I give her something... Don't get me wrong, she doesn't expect anything, but if we do give her something, she wants it to be homemade... after all, she only has "one body", and her house is full of "junks", so she doesn't want "stuff". Do you feel the pressure??? Anyway, when I first made the Tri-Shutter album I knew I could use it to make a mini album for mom for Mother's day. I love this Bo Bunny paper and decided to use it for her album. I didn't know what to put on the front of the album and wanted it to stay closed, so I added a belly band (used velcro dot closure) and decorated it with a flower that was cut from a Sizzix die. Here is what the card looks like when its open. I decided to use photos from my sister's recent trip home. We got some nice shots of my daughter and Aunty Denise. Also included photos from my Aunty's surprise birthday party. Here's some close ups of the album... On the right side, I had Akemi write "Happy Mother's Day". Its really weird how the white ink on the purple cardstock turned to pink and the white ink on the DP stayed white. I'll have to make a mental note of that in case I have her do this again. Do you like how she made the curly Q's on the letters? She felt they were so fancy. Too bad we couldn't wrap up Akemi and send her with the card- Grandma would have loved that present! To all you crafty moms out there... Happy Mother's Day! Supplies: Cardstock- DCWV DP- Bo Bunny Flower- Sizzix Brad- American Crafts
