Just like that -- Brookie is 8!! -- and YES! I did glue the birthday candle to my project!! :)

Hi all!!

I wanted to share a mini album I made a couple of weeks ago, with Brookie's Birthday photos in it :) 

I used Lily Bee, GCD Studios, Kaiser Craft, Simple Stories, Heidi Swapp ... and probably a whole bunch more :) 

And YES!!! I adhered the "8" candle from her cake to the front of my album ... why, is that wrong??!! LOL!! :) 












I added a pocket to this page to hold Brookie's "Birth Certificate" for her bunny she made :) 


















And I made a pocket for the last page to hold all the cards she got :) 



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
