You Need It For When?!!

I've been asked to make an 18th Birthday Party Photo Album for one of the staff at nursery (I feel really really old when they are that young!) and they need it by Thursday....!!

The brief is, pink, silver and black. So in need of some inspiration I've turned to a few current challenges, and so far I've completed 2 of the 18 (yes 18!) pages....

For the first, I've used the Sketch Girl sketch:

The same sketch is repeated as a mirror image on the reverse of the page. And for page 2 I've used the sketch from Moving Along With The Times:
I've used 300gsm smooth white card as the album base, doodled a line around the edges and for the printed papers I've used Pinkie Pops from Funky Fairy. The silver card is from my stash, and as luck would have it, I had 3 balls of what is technically termed fibres (wool) that matched the colours perfectly!
I've added markers as to where the photos should be placed just so it all looks right in the end.
So only another 16 pages - double sided - to go!! So watch out for more sketch challenges over the next 2 days! Good job I've booked tomorrow off work otherwise I'd really be burning the midnight oil!
  • Printed papers: Pinkie Pops by Funky Fairy
  • Dies: Spellbinder Nestabilities
  • Everything else: My stash
