This weekend, it's J's friend's birthday. Today he has been invited to go and join his friend for his own birthday treat - they are going "skydiving" at a local centre, where they have a large, vertical wind tunnel. I don't think that activity lasts 3 hours though - probably more like 3 minutes I'm afraid, but I hope they are going to have fun.
Meanwhile, as a little gift, I have made this mini-album for J's friend:
The book is made with Kraft cardstock and double-sided papers by American Crafts. The letters are by Papermania and MLS.
J. took part in the choosing of the materials and embellishments. He wrote this journalling panel. Under the journalling panel and the kraft tree, there are magnets, which fasten the flap.
The back cover, which wraps round to make the front flap, has sparkly lines on it. DS thought that they were not "girly", as the colours of the stripes are quite strong. So that was alright then... !
You may notice the arrow has "pull me" written on it. The green-striped paper is attached to a piece of kraft cardstock, which pulls out from under the photo. It has a message from J. to his friend, about the fun they had. J is really pleased with this book and I'm sure it will please his friend (and parents) too. In fact, I'm rather pleased with it myself!
I also made a 12" Page today. But I can't show it to you. It's a Secret. If you want to know why, go and look here!
