OTP Birthday Card

It is my Mums 60th Birthday in 2 weeks so for her birthday card I have made her this little book. I choose her favorite colours burgundy and gold. I started with coloured photos but decided it took away from the colour scheme of the project. So I changed it to black and white photographs.Here is the cover page and little tags.

Here is inside the first page, a photo of my lovely mum, doesn't she look young for 60!!! These are the first foldy flowers I have ever made. They are so sweet, I will be making more of these.

Next is a pic of mum mum and her husband, and the front of the heart shaped page, I have added an angel for my Grandma (who died 10 years ago)

The next page is of my fantastic Grandparents. Grandma (R.I.P) and my Grandad who turns 90 next month!

Next is mums daughters and more of the foldy flowers

On to the grandchildren!

And mums biggest love of all her cats...

Another cat and mum with her sisters!

The back cover, I wasn't sure what to do with this so just wrote "made just for you with love" around the sticker.

I have really enjoyed this project and I am entering it into the
Southern girls challenge- fancy folds (for my little foldy flowers)
