Happy Birthday Debi!

 As most of you know from reading my blog, Debi is my CBFF!  Yes, I made up this term because I think that these crazy acronyms are so funny, so I made up my own.  C-Crafty BFF!  I have other BFF's but she is my craftiest.  She's my go-to gal whenever I'm stuck on a project or have a question on technique. All I can say is I'm so happy she moved to Hilo!

So since we've been friends, I've taken her out for her b-day.  It's our chance to hang out and have some girl time.  This year, I was inspired to make something for her.  She's been helping me out from Day 1 of Sister Stamps and I really really appreciate all her feedback, samples, and other help she's given me.  Ok, I'll stop gushing now, but you get the idea.

I thought a mini album would be fun to give her since she could use it for whatever.  I got this paper pack during the Sale-A-Bration from SU this year and remembered that Debi told me that she liked the paper, so I decided to use it to make her mini.  The great thing about coordinated papers is that it takes the guesswork out of putting together a mini album!

Debi tends to like country vintage/shabby chic style crafts in addition to cutsie.  I guess its rubbing off on me cause now I'm liking that too. I added some flowers and bling to the cover, but left an open space so that she could put her own title if she wanted to.  I wasn't sure what she would use the album for, so I left that blank for her to play with.

In my first mini waterfall album, I only made the waterfall on the right hand side.  I wanted to do something different this time, so I made the waterfall on both sides so she could add more photos and journaling.  

This next photo is when you pull the left side.

And this is when you pull the right.  Obviously you can't pull both at the same time or they will collide!

Hope you enjoyed this mini, but more importantly, hopefully Debi likes it!  Waiting to post this until I can give it to her.
