Favorite Memories Album

Do you ever feel like your friends rub off on you?

That's how I've been feeling lately.  I've never really cared for paper crafting, but the more I hang out with Lizzy and see her darling mini albums, the more I want to make my own.  So with Steve's 30th Birthday Party last week, I seized the opportunity and made a "Favorite Memories Album". I decorated each page before the party with enough room to fit an Instax Wide (Polaroids taken with my Instax 210, a camera Steve makes fun of because he says it looks like it's from 1995, and it's not old enough to be cool, yet. )
ha ha, He might be right

I took pictures of everyone at the party and let them choose a page to glue in their photo and write a favorite memory of Steve.  I could tell it really made his day to read all the nice (and funny) things people had to say about him.  

That, and the badges I made everyone wear showcasing silly and cute pictures of him growing up. I was lucky enough to sport the photo of him wearing a snuggie. :)

Between bowling, pizza, a Sweet Tooth Fairy Cupcake with 30 candles shoved into it and my Mom quilting the biking quilt we all made him at last years quilt retreat, I'd say it was a hit.

*Love this! I'm going to have to steal your idea of having people wear badges with pictures inside. Sounds like such a great birthday party!

Beautiful little album! I'm not big on papercrafting myself - but am constantly amazed at what other people can do with it!

Just stopped by to let you know that I featured your piano applique on my round tuit post this week!
