A Special Birthday Gift

My daughter, Kiah, has a birthday party to attend for a little friend from Calisthenics.

Kiah is most excited about getting to go along and dress up as a fairy for the day to help her friend celebrate.

So being organised I started to think about what to give as a gift. This was a very hard process for me for a few reasons:
1. I don't know what the little girl already has
2. I don't like to give toys
3. The little girls isn't into reading so much that a book is out
So I was stuck as to what to give her.

That was until I found this really cute birthday 6x6 paper. It got me thinking.. I decided to make her up a little 6x6 album to pop her birthday photos into.

First I got to work decorating the album itself.
The cover of the album

The pages in the album

Here's a slide show of the 10 pages in the album I made up

Lots of bright colours, sparkles and bling.. just what every little girl likes!

Don't forget too that no birthday present is complete without a card.. so here's the card I made up to go with the album
