December 2010 was my mother in law's 70th birthday, so I decided we should hold a party for her and invite the family. Everyone chipped in with the food preps, from cooking meat to making desserts and Bernadette made and decorated the cake. Nothing means more to Nancy than having all her family around her and that is exactly what she had and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Anyway I finally finished the book and they popped in yesterday so I gave it go her and she was delighted with it - thankfully.
It is a very simple book, 6x6 and just contains photos that the family took on the day, think I managed about three!! No journalling other than the titles as I didn't feel it needed any more. Plus I know her and John will sit down and reminisce about the day with the book during many an evening to come. I realise now I have forgotten to photograph the covers!! Hey ho, never mind.
The boost to get on and finish this book was from The Happy Scrappers monthly challenge - so a big thank you to Lesley and Shaz for the kick up the backside :)
Think this is a first for me as well, showing a scrapbooking page as I am not a confident scrapper - not a confident anything actually!!
