Happy Birthday Erin! A Mini Album

I made this mini album for a birthday present for my daughter Erin. Her birthday is today---  Happy Birthday Sweetums!

Erin and her family took a trip to Hawaii to visit family this summer, so I thought it would be a fun little remembrance for her!

The mini album is from the Silhouette Store(Lori Whitlock)  Here and Here-as well as the palm tree. The stamp set from Inspiration Emporium-Critters in the Sea. I used some bright and fruity Doodlebug designer paper throughout the mini (gotta love that pineapple paper) and my wonderful son Matt, sized and printed all the pics for me. ( It closes with a magnetic closure.)  Sweet Aunt Becky from Hawaii  sent me pictures too-so you see, this mini was a family affair!

Here is the first page...A suntanned family picture and a place to journal about the trip.  I sprinkled a few Critters in the  the Sea throughout the pages!

I made extra pages to insert into this mini...I could not pick just a few pictures(too many cute ones), so I added extra pages inside the accordian pages. I ran a strip of redline tape along the bottom of each double sided page to make a pocket for the pineapple tabbed inserts.. All you have to do is grab one of those little pineapples and pull and a hidden page will  pop out. I cut the pineapples out of the designer paper.

Here you can see the pages fanned out and the extra pages added.

And here is the birthday girl-my daughter Erin!

 Here is Lukey diving right into the pool-No Fear at age 3... And Cole doing a cannon ball into the pool!!! They are definitely little fish.

 At the beach-surfing and sandcastles

Date night-kid free and a pic of the boys running to the beach from their room! Oops I think Lukey forgot his shorts LOL! 

There are more pages-I think I stuffed just about 20 pictures into this mini-Wowser!!!.  I have mini's that I have made of the boys when they were little and I look at them all the I hope Erin enjoys this mini too!

Thanks for stopping in today and I hope you enjoyed your visit!


Pin It!
