Sweet Sixteen Thank You Album

ETA: Does anyone know why Blogger keeps making a mess of my postings? I have edited this one three times and it still posts all bunched together! Happy Saturday! I made an album for my niece, Samantha, to give to my brother, Richard, as a thank you for her party last weekend. The tutorial for the album is from a past Inkspirations4U session. Here is the album closed: I used Bashful Blue card stock, Delicate Dots DSP (retired), and Marina Mist satin ribbon. The sentiment was created in Word with the Fiolex Girls font and RGB values for Marina Mist. First flap open: Samantha with her yummy birthday cake! Second flap open: Richard and his GF. Both flaps open: I cut the Cinderella carriage from the Princess paper that I used for Sam's exploding box. On the right is my niece, Amanda, with Richard. The center of the album: Yes, Samantha had three dresses for her party! The picture on the left is the dress she wore on the party bus to and from the party. The next picture is her dress for the cocktail hour. On the right is her gown for the party. And, a family picture on the far right: my mother, Richard, Amanda, Kevin, and myself. The top picture is a scanned mini version of the party invitation and the bottom picture is the table Samantha sat at with her boyfriend and VIP friends. The center is blank for Samantha to write her thank you to Richard. It was a wonderful party with 100 guests. Wish we could do it again this weekend! Thanks for stopping by! Lisa p.s: Part way through the party, someone stepped on Samantha's gown on the dance floor and it tore a bit so she changed back into her cocktail dress. Poor Kevin had a swollen face from an infected tooth, and was taking antibiotics and pain medication.

Lisa, das Album wird für deine Nichte eine wunderschöne Erinnerung an ihren 16.Geburtstag sein.
Du hast es so zauberhaft gestaltet. Das Herz auf der Vorderseite mit dem Spitzenbesatz so schon ein Hingucker!

Liebe Grüße Regina

Yea, blogger sure acts weird sometimes. I think the post looks great though.

This project is super. What size paper did you used to make this? It looks like it needed soemthing bigger than 12x12".
