Pocket Mini Albums

My daughter is in Grade 9 this year, and so many of her classmates have lost a parent this year.  
The class held a special church service for their friends, to celebrate the lives of these special parents.
We, my daughter and I, decided to make each classmate a special pocket mini album to keep in their school blazer pocket.....for those days when they are missing their mom or dad!!

I comibned the sketch with Case File No. 180 over at CSI!

The theme of her birthday party was Red Riding Hood, and her mom put a lot of effort in!

I included some memorabilia from her birthday party.....birthday card, invitation, straw, candles, etc.

 As Mila's mom always takes so many photos I created a little booklet for some more photos, journalling and the CD with all the photos on!
The cover.....this was such a cute photo....Why is Grandma's ear so big?
