80th Birthday Celebration

My Dad turned 80 on Sunday and we celebrated at their batch with 50+ family and friends over lunch organised mainly by my Mum (77).  It was a huge day but so nice to see them enjoying the company of friends and relations on a happy occasion.  Unfortunately I was too busy to get many photos of the day.

So on Saturday night I made my third creation this year being a birthday card for Dad.
 Prima "Romance Novel" 6x6 paper pad papers were used to create this layout.  I chose them as Dad's trade was as a printer. 
 I cut little letters of his initials for the number plate.  The circle diecut is Manor House. 
 and the inside is sheets of paper as they were.  The birthday boy was also a telegram boy as a teenager.  In the little pocket is mini vouchers which were his birthday gift "A Mystery Outing".  I also cut out little circle numbers and put the year he was born on a telegram centre left.  Our message went on the centre right.
I think the image is 'Lili of the Valley' available at 'Embellish It'.  It was on a 6 x 4 card and I trimmed it off and popped it up with foam tape.

I really am hoping to get my mojo back soon and get onto scrapping my dear grandsons again. 

Embellish It are having a crop on 22 March.  Contact Joanne if you wish to join in.  By the way Embellish It now has a Facebook Page

So until next time..... take care and keep warm if in an area of NZ experiencing this very abrupt end to summer.

Thank you for visiting today.
