Archiver’s™ Happy 80th Birthday Mini Album

Archiver's™-Happy-80th-Birthday-Mini-Album

Hi everyone! My family and I just celebrated my grandmother’s 80th birthday and since she loves mini albums, I decided to make one for her. The party was somewhat a surprise. We just told her we were going to celebrate her birthday at my sister’s, but she had no idea that there would be family members traveling from New York, Kentucky and Virginia to celebrate her big day! She was truly touched that so many people cared about her. She made us all cry when she walked through the front door and I am sad that I did not get the photo!

The newest Archiver’s collection is perfect for the mini 2×3 Pocket Album! I love the patterns, color palette and laser die cuts in this gorgeous collection. Ah, it’s so pretty! I just love the rose patterned paper!

Photography Tip – Birthday Photos

What do you photograph at birthdays?  I wanted to share a few of the things that I like to photograph on that special day in our home.

Cake

Do you buy a cake or make a cake for the birthday person?  Is there a family favourite that you always make or buy?  Is there a theme cake?  I always try to take a photo of the cake so we can look back each year to see what creation I have come up with.
