Birthday Book for Mom........

My Mom's birthday is coming up on the 29th of this month. She will be celebrating her 87th birthday. She is the best mother in the world. She raised 11 of us kids and always showed each of us love and understanding. I made her a birthday book and I wanted to share it with you. I saw one of these books here in blogland some time ago. I made one for my daughter's 45th and she really liked it. I'm not sure who made the book that I saw, so if you did, please come forward so that I may give credit to the originator!


So here are the pictures of the book~~~~~






































































OOps!..............I made a giant mistake!!! This should say Happy 87th Birthday, Mum! I hope I can peel that off and correct it!




I will be on vacation from July 3 through July 8, so I probably won't be posting until I get back. We are attending our annual family reunion at my Mom's in PA. It will be great to see my aunts & uncles, cousins, brothers & sisters, brother-in-laws & sister-in-laws, nieces & nephews and so on....There is always lots to do during the reunion; games, good food and great company! It's always so much fun!

This book was so much fun to make and I hope that she likes it! I will give it to her while we are there for vacation.
P.S. I made a new banner and pasted it over the old one. It says "Happy 87th Birthday, Mum!"
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

What a fabulous creation of love, Mom is going to love it I'm sure.
I can't figure out what the base of the book is before embellishment. What did you start with?

I want to copy your idea which you copied from another creation lady. It is just a circle of sharin'.

Have a great time at the reunion and I look forward to hearing the highlights when you return.

Travel blessings and Happy 4th wishes,
Candy
