Someone I know was about to turn 18 and a friend and I wanted to surprise her with something special. We thought she would appreciate a memento of her party but weren't sure how to go about giving her that. Then suddenly we had it! We knew she appreciated handmade craft, so my friend bought a 12" x 12" album and I made blank layouts to go inside! That way she would be able to print out photos and just place them in her album. I found some retired and current Stampin' Up! products, went to Page Maps for inspiration sketches, and was away scrapping. Here's the cover page:
Next I needed to create a party sign-in page. This mostly needed to be blank to allow people to write special messages to the birthday girl, so I didn't need a sketch :)
I'll show you some more layout pages another day.
