Happy Birthday Susan from Lorby's World.

I decided on a mini photo book. This little book measures 6 x 6. It's small enough to carry in your purse and use as a brag book.

Glitter was my friend as usual and I used it to write out Happy Birthday. It's dollar bin glitter but I still love it.

All the embellishments are 3D K&CoMPANY flowers and butterflies.
I had to show a close up of the Happy Birthday just because I love the way it sparkles.

The inside pages are smaller than the outside covers. The inside pages measure 5 x 4.25. I spritzed Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angles in colors: sugar maple, apple, and star fish with a blue patina on some of the pages. I didn't like the way the mist was blotching at first but the more I did it the more I thought it added to the beauty of the album.

Here are a few close ups of the embellishments.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop and I would like to take this moment to wish Susan one last happy birthday from me.

Now hop on over to Linda's blog to see what creative birthday thing she's made and don't forget about the drawing from our wonderful sponsors. I would like it if you started following me but I promise not to drag you into my world if you don't. : )

We have divided this hop into two (2) days with different blogs for you to visit each day. Make sure to visit all!
