I've finally completed the mini album for Sophie's 1st birthday party. Unfortunately, of all the photos, I could not find the one that is taken with daddy, myself and S in the picture. =( So of all the shots, that one is not included inside.. Boohoo.. =(
Here is the shot.. just imagine that is in the mini album ok??
OK, now for the album itself. Colour tones are yellow, green, blue and pink.. Super pastel and super departure from my usual. Was trying to match up her party colours (blue and pink) and *finally* use finish my SL August kit (which is predominantly yellow and green). Hurhur. And I am proud to say I have done it (well almost anyway) - can start on destructing the next kit in line liaoz.
Cover page and inside of cover page
First acrylic page - this was really hard because the designs will be viewed from both the front and the back!! Gosh!! I kept on forgetting that at first and end up "jia yan jia cu" on both sides to cover the "ugly" parts of the embellies. Lol.
The two facing pages. The "vines" on the acrylic page are a cutout from Tinkering Ink paper, supposed to be continuous with the vines on the inside of cover page.
Back of the first acrylic page. Used it to showcase the handmade door gift for the guests. Lucky i had some left to spare!
Showcasing her birthday cupcakes. Nope, I didn't make them!! I ordered them from cupcake-momma.net and I am so glad I did, they were lovely and the hit of the party. So much easier to serve too than a traditional cake as guests can just take one along on their way out.
Two facing pages
Papa and Mouse - mouse is busy trying to grab at the lighted candle! Sam Seng queen!
Facing page with peek-a-boo window that failed miserably.. LOL.
Closed and opened peek-a-boo window.. oops.. doesn't really work hor =(
The second acrylic page meant to be seen through the peek-a-boo window
Back of second acrylic page
Second peek-a-boo to see the third acrylic page. I am getting better at this as the album progresses.. but its the last acrylic page liao haha. The back of the second peek-a-boo is also much nicer and cleaner-cut looking that the first.
Back and front of 3rd and last acrylic page. This is my favourite page of all! I especially like how the embellies on the back cover page of the album can be seen through the acrylic and complements really well with the design on the front of the acrylic.
