I4U! Project #4 - Tropical Album

Happy Thursday!

There is a restaurant at the beach that I love going to when I am at my mother's house in NY. As I liked the 'Book of Love' so much, I made a 'Tropical' version for my mother with pictures from last year. I left the last pages blank so I can add new pictures that we take there this year.

So, here is the front cover:

First page (the left picture is of the closed-in part of the restaurant--we always sit outside, the right picture is my mother and my brother Kevin, with me, of course):

Second page (my mother and me, having a good time, just the two of us):

Third page (Kevin):

Fourth page (blank pages, awaiting 2011 pictures, perhaps my brother Richard will join us one evening):

Back cover:

Supplies used: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, and Tempting Turquoise card stock, Hostess Pack, Island Oasis, and Sweet Pea DSP (all retired), Tropical Party (retired) and W Plus 9 Guiding Light stamp sets, Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, and rhinestones (girls' day out has got to include some bling!). I created the title in Word and printed it in Old Olive using the RGB values.
I think I should change the ribbon to Pumpkin Pie. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by.

This is so beautiful and colorful. Love the pics you chose and the finished project is great. You look beautiful by the way! I like the green ribbon, but the orange would look just as good I think! Great project. Best, Curt
