Happy 60th Birthday to my Mom | Celebrating in Longboat Key!

Sep 29, 2010

I don’t have time to write much because I’m trying to get out the door to drive to Longboat!  But I wanted to set this post up for my mom’s 60th birthday which is September 29th.  I’ve been working on her present for months and finally get to give it to her tonight!  Thought I’d give you sentimental folks a sneak peek.  Leave my mom a birthday greeting will ya?  🙂

I made a slideshow with all the album design and a bunch of other silly pictures.  I can’t get the video to post within my blog, so if you want to see the whole thing just click on the link below.  I love when technology stops working when I have no time to deal with it!  Argghhh!!

I made her a Photobox to put her new album in.  It also has tons of birthday cards that people have sent me.  🙂


I love the back of the box!


The album is bound in this beautiful flowered velvet material.  Yummy!


One of my favorite spreads-pictures of her from the 70s that I had never even seen until I rummaged through her garage!


My layout with a little message to her.  There’s a bunch of these throughout the book from her closest family and friends:

Happy Birthday Mommy, hope it’s the best one yet!
