birthday gift

tita beth, one of our ninangs during our wedding, celebrated her 65th birthday last december 31. her birthday was supposed to be the folliwng day, january 1 but apparently they always celebrate it every new year's eve.

tita beth is the tita of joel, nelo's best friend, and he's really close to their family even before we met.

we were informed of the party 2 days ahead but we didn't have time to look for a gift anymore. nelo told me to just prepare a scrapbook layout for her and we'll place it in a shadowbox frame.

i only had 4 hours to do this layout. good thing we were able to find a good picture of her during our wedding. I just had it printed in a textured cardstock.

despite the limited time, i had fun doing the layout. it was the first time that i actually went to the extent of handcutting the flowers from the patterned paper. i was able to create a 3-dimensional look on the layout.

here it is:

materials used: patterned paper - inspirations by memory block; decorative corner puncher; deja view clear sticker; sizzlits font - nouveau; glitter glaze; foam tape
