Mother's Day Mini Album

Happy Mother's Day everyone, I hope you'll all have a wonderful day. I've been absolutely spoilt rotten today. I got a 85mm f/1.2 lens, yippee, a battery grip and 27 Dresses on DVD. Right now we're going out for dinner to Colombo's.

Here's what I made for my mum and this time it only took a week to get to her:

The Mother's Day poem in the album is the oldest Dutch Mother's Day poem in the archives, written in 1913.

Supplies: chipboard album - Basic Grey, PPs Bsic Grey, flowers - Prima Marketing, paper frill - Doodlebug, rubber stamp - Catslife Press, heart punch - EK Success, 3D puffy paint - Tulip, clear stamps - Basic Grey & Autumn Leaves, ribbons - Making Memories, chipboard accents - Cherry Art, journaling circles - Creative Café, letter stickers - Basic Grey, bling - KaiserCraft and Doodlebug.

And being given a new lens today, I of course had to try it out. Rebecca was willing enough to be my model. This is my picture for today:

Renee and Ruben also posed for a little bit towards the end, so here's the best ones of them:

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

You did a great job on the mini album. I saw it IRL this morning and it looks gorgeous. It is a wonderful gift.
The pictures are beautiful. The one of Rebecca is my favorite. Love her look and the colors.

Wat een bofferd is je moeder. Ik vind het een schattig boekje! Heel leuk dat alle kids wat hebben getekend en de papierlijn is ook erg mooi.

This little book is so dadgum adorable! WHAT AN AMAZING IDEA! I have not made my mother in law anything she was gone to hawaii for 2 weeks. You have completely inspired me to scan and shrink down some of her drawings and things she did at school to give her. THIS IS AWESOME !!! thank you for inspiration!!! I was clueless what to make her!
