50th Birthday Mini Album

Hi Everyone ~ Hope all of you are having a wonderful Sunday!! Last Saturday was my sister's 50th Birthday Surprise Party, so I thought I would make her a mini album for the occasion. It was a bit of a challenge to give her a surprise party since she was trying to plan her own party and everyone that was invited had to have some excuse for not coming. We even had to make sure that her boss said she had to work at the time of the real surprise party, just to make sure she didn't show up unexpectedly. Well we pulled it off and everyone had a fabulous time and she didn't have to work. Which was what she said when she realized it was a party for her. LOL!
Now for the mini I made her. I want to let all of you know that my inspiration for this mini came from Mary at CardzTV, she made one very similar for her husband for Father's day. It was gorgeous and the theme was all about his garden that he was growing. I just love all of Mary's projects and make sure you stop by her blog she is amazing!!! Hope you all like it.












Products I used:
New  Recollections paper pack from Michaels - Cupcake Cuties and Lumiere
I used Viva decor on the ends of the ribbons to seal them.
A variety of stamps and stickers I had and I am not sure which brand they are (sorry).
Stickles of course and I used the Viva Decor for the inside to write her name and date.
The Happy Birthday on the cover is something I had in my stash along with the cupcakes.
The flower with the leaves are made from punches by Stampin'UP and I get all of my Stampin'Up products from my sweet friend Norma at Pink Bling Crafter, be sure to stop by her blog she is amazing.
I also accented various stamped items on the pages with some sparkle gel pens I got awhile back from Big Lots. I am telling you that is one of the best purchases I made I use them all the time.
Bind it All, which I used for the first time and it was extremely easy.
All the tags were cut from Tags, Bags and  Boxes Cricut cartridge and they fit inside the pages.
Washi tape, I really like this tape. 

I am also entering this in the anything goes at cardztv.

Happy Crafting!!!!!!
