Bea's 100th Birthday Mini Album

As I mentioned in my last post, Bea is turning 100 in November, and I am making her a keepsake with some photos that my parents sent to me.  If you didn't get a chance to meet Bea, click here and go to the bottom of my post.  There is a link to an article and a short TV broadcast about her.  She is an inspiration to us all!!  I could have just put the link again here, but I want you to see the card that I made for her 100th birthday.  I just love the way it turned out.  ;)

On to the mini album...  I like having photos on the outside of albums, but eventually they begin to wear.  I suddenly realized that if I affixed a clear card onto the cover that it would protect my photo and still give me the look that I was going for.

Not only that, but it gave me a little interacting element!!

I added the Lagoon sparkle to give a hint that the opening was to be found on that side (and also to cover the smallest of smudges!!)


  1. 100! That is amazing! Believe Bea is a very happy woman :-). I like the clear cover you made, looks pretty.

    1. She is a sweetheart!! I will definitely do the clear card on another cover. I like the look. I hope it doesn't scratch!!
