Dad's album #1; Babygirl

My dear father turned 71 this summer and I wanted to make something special for him, with mostly pictures of my brother and me, something he would always treasure, and decided to make an 8,5" album. (quite a lot more work than I imagined, but so much fun... )

I'll be showing the LO's one by one, so that I have something to post on a day with less productivity... ;)

This first one is one of my favorites, but maybe for me, the hardest one to do. I wanted it to be pretty much all white, but had to give in on the picture and letters.

I've used Bazill cardstock and then dies from Cuttlebug, Magnolia and Marianne Design. I've used a Martha Stewart punch and an embossing folder from Sizzix. Alle the different ribbons are from Bikuben and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts. I sewed around the edge with my Sew Easy.

I'm entering this LO in the following challenges:

The Shabby Tea Room - Vintage White
Hanna and Friends - Anything goes 
OLLCB - Punches/dies
Fab 'n' funky - It's a hard theme
Simon Says Stamp - Dies to Die for

Takk for at du tittet innom!/Thank you for stopping by!
