Family Reunion Album

My grandma turned 80 years young in August.  I said I would help with the planning of the party.  Yes, this is a late post - but I've been working on the inside pages and finally finished all of them.

Along with sending monthly reminders to everyone, I said I would be in charge of the album for Grandma.  I gave instructions for every family (down to the grandchildren families) to provide me with a 6x6 scrapbook layout.  I didn't really give any restrictions - other than: 6x6 and you had to have pictures and PLEASE provide names and dates (as should be included on all scrapbooking pages).

Well, most people complied with my request and we were able to put together quite the little album for Grandma's birthday present.  I have since added pages (using pictures I (and others) took while at the reunion/birthday party) and added those NAMES and DATES to those pages that did not include them!  Think of posterity when creating a scrapbook - they may not know names, places or dates when viewing your work of art 50 years from now.

I am quite excited about how the album turned out.  Grandma said she loved it - I'm sure she would LOVE to have it back too!

So - any birthdays, anniversaries, or otherwise big events coming up - consider creating an album to capture memories.  Get everyone involved by having them provide their page(s) - you just be the go-to-gal of gathering the pages and putting them in the book!

Here's how I did it:
Cardstock: So Saffron, So Saffron DSP
Accessories: 5-Petal Flower Punch, So Saffron Stampin Pad, Stamping Sponges, Big Shot Die-Cut Machine, Cutting Pads, Serif Essentials Alphabet Bigz Dies, SNAIL adhesive, Crop-A-Dile, Retired (sorry): eyelet & So Saffron Poly-Twill Ribbon

Out of respect to my family members, I did not include pictures of the scrapbook pages - as they include photos, names of individuals and events.  Thank you for your understanding.
