"BIRTHDAY" Mini word Album


My only cousin is turning 40 years old on the 10th of this month.. She is having a big party Saturday and I really wanted to make her something super special..  I adore how this came out and might have to make myself one almost exactly like it...LOL  :O)
Oh! great way to put your old cereal boxes to good use.. I cut the base of the album using 4 cereal boxes, the backs and fronts..

Here are some close ups and all of the details:

I have ONNEA written on the left side of this page, which in Finnish means "Congrats!"..
I also found some excellent Birthday quotes from Scrapbook.com which I copied and pasted onto my Word program and then played around with the fonts and printed them, either onto cardstock or printer paper.





This is my favorite because of the butterflies and the nice soft colors.
