Birthday Cake Mini Shaker Album

Hello friends! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a fun mini album I created!  I  have a group of friends from high school that have remained close into adulthood.  This year everyone (except me) is turning 50! One weekend a few of us went to Indiana to spend time with our friend, Michelle, to help her celebrate!  I used the Chipboard Banner Album for my book and love how it turned out!  


For the front of my album, I used the Birthday Cake Mini Shaker Shape as the accent of my page.  I painted it a bright pink and added fun sequins to the center!  I  then adorned the top with die cut numbers.  


Also, each page was  painted with white acrylic paint before adding any paper or embellishments.  For the inside of my front cover, I left an area for journaling. I'm not sure if I'm going to go back and add some thoughts or allow my friend to.  


Each page is big enough to fit a 4x4 or 4x6 horizontal photo!  I  tend to mat my photos onto white cardstock because I  like the way it looks. 



Here, I  created an extra page using some patterned paper and my Scor-Pal.  I  created a flap to hide photos and journaling as you can see in the next picture.  



Here are photos of the rest of my album!  




We turned into pumpkins at midnight and were back in the hotel in our pajamas!  LOL  


Thank you for stopping by the blog today! I  hope this inspires you to create a mini album about a fun event you've recently attended!  Have a great day!
