This my family – 4 of the 5 siblings and my mom! Dad passed away 3 days after my birthday, we buried him on the 11th, day before Ally’s (Allison) birthday! So the entire first 2 weeks in August, are enough for the both of us! The year I was born, all Ally wanted was a birthday party and a sister baby! Well, she got both! In the picture above of course the cute little lady in the front is our mom! Mom had 4 kids in 5 years – lost a set of twins in between all of them, waited 5 years and then baby sis was born! David is on the far left, Deb next to him, I am next to her and our birthday girl is on the far right! Mark isn’t in the picture, he’s right after Deb in the sibling line!

I wanted something special for Ally this year, a place to put her special pictures of friends and family! If you actually looked at one of the wall’s in her house, you would understand… she’s running out of wall room (wink, wink). I have had the album for a long time to get it done for her, it just kept getting put on the back burner for some reason! I vowed this year, I would finish up some of those type of projects… this one turned out better than I expected! For me personally, the papers made it so I didn’t want to use a lot of embellishments, it would make it way too busy! I will share the whole album in another post (maybe today), it turned out really well!!!

For today, your challenge is:

  • Make birthday cards for upcoming birthdays
  • Get a birthday present started
  • Find a project you have been putting off, and get it done

Like always, make sure you share with me something you have done with the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by,

Lynda Jeffs, Memories in Tyme
