D Day

Well today was the day I needed to get the album done for Steven's friend 21st Birthday, in fact it had to be ready for yesterday.

...and YEAH, I did it, I've still got a few pages to fill as hopefully going to put in some holiday and birthday photos of him and his family, (they went to Euro Disney to celebrate his birthday). I used the papermania birthday album.


The mum loves it and so does Nick, the reason it had to be finished by yesterday was because Steven was off out with his carer to pizza hut to meet up with Nick, their friends and carers to celebrate Nicks 21st. Also Steven's and Nicks carers were going on maternity leave and another young lad, who is 21 next week, so a whole table of celebrations.





Also made a couple of cards for both Steven and Nick's carers as they both went on maternity leave yesterday too. So I got Steven to do a mug for each of them, which they both loved and said they would treasure.







I will be doing a slide show of Nick's album, but that will have to wait till I've got some photos to finish the last few pages...
