Daddy's Boys

I wanted to share a gift I made for my boys to give to their Dad for his 50th Birthday. I had planned to put the book together during my time at home after my operation however, that didn't happen due to the fact that I was rushed back into hospital so it's taken me nearly six weeks to complete by just doing a little each day.

I won't bore you with all the details, however, had this concertina album with box for ages now so started by painting it all cream. For the cover of the box, used one of the SMASH pockets and stamped an SU greeting on the front then got the boys to fill in a page each from a SMASH pad and turned them into labels to put into the pocket.

All papers are MME and card stock is SU. All embellishments are from my scrapbook collection (of which I think I have too many!). Kept the layouts all very similar and simple as I wasn't physically able to sit for hours at a time.
