50th Birthday

Here are the gift and card I made for my friends special birthday......


I used the DCWV La Creme paper stack.

The 50 album is Kaiser.


























































Made up this verse for the pocket in the back.


















This is the box I decorated to hold the album....
























The card to match....









The card wouldn't fit in an envelope after I put the three roses on the front, so I had to make a special box to fit..... and I'll be damned if I can remember who gave me the inspiration for the box - if it was you - thank you xx





The two boxes.......





The complete set........


All packed up and ready to go........



Friend has received it and is delighted with her gift.....

Next post - April Lime Tart.....

OMG Jane! What an amazing gift of love! Your album is stunning, the poem at the end made me laugh out loud (talk about a hint!) but I love it also for the positive spin. It's so nice to focus on 50 as "no problem" instead of "one foot in the grave!" You are just wonderful - and this gift is stunning! I'm very thankful that you posted the whole thing - - - a thousand good ideas here!

Jane this is absolutely stunning. You have put so much work into the album, I have made a few of them and love them. The poem you wrote is to die for, may have to scraplift that if you don't mind. I'm sure your friend was in tears when she opened this. You have really outdone yourself this time Jane! BEAUTIFUL!!!
