BAR-B-Q word album-*photo heavy

My best friends birthday is June 26th and I really wanted to make her something special and personalized. last summer we were privileged enough to be able to spend 3 weeks in Florida with our friends and family. I added photos of our cookouts in this album.
I knew I wanted something to top off the BARBQ and came up with the "SUMMER 08".
I got the title from the shirt she is wearing.. it has Tweety bird on it.
which I highlighted with a flower silhoutte, that I stickled with red
She loves cats, so I wanted to incorporated that into this layout. My DD saved this cat.
just another Kat with the cat photo..LOL
I can't remember when I had laughed as much as I did that night.. so, thats where I got that title from. I didn't add a photo of the other pics on the page, cause she loves giving the camera the middle finger..LOL
This is kat with her hubby Brian.. My first attempt at making the kitty from Hello Kitty font..
stickled it with red as well..
hugs and kisses stickled with cinnamon
the happy couple..LOL
shes' giving the camera a finger in this photo as well, but I decided to cover it with the rolling pin..LOL I added the text "attitude adjuster" to the rolling pin..
just a close up of the names I stickled with black and red.

  • Cricut cart: Hello Kitty Font
