Abby's 40th Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and to the Abby's Over The Hill Blog Hop.

We are celebrating my BFF and comadrita Abby's 40th Birthday.
Hopefully you just arrived from Liz's blog, if not please start at the beginning with Candace.

I created these tags to post on her blog...

Tags | DEE stamps, dies, Stickles and glass beads

This is what they look like on a gift.

 Some of the tags' background were stamped with the Notas a la Antigua stamp (music).
I made lots of them...


...and I created this album ... a labor of love (lots of detail and lots of new techniques for me) so that she can document her oh so super busy December.  If she does not want to document it daily she can at least document special events such as my goddaughter recital, her oldest son's first time playing soccer, her other two son's achievements in sports, traveling to Mexico, Christmas, turning the BIG 40!!!  LOL and/or a scrap event she is holding this month.

Cover | I had already shared on FB | DEE stamps, Mod Podge, dies, Stickles, acrylic paint, washi tape ribbon, Glossy Accents, white glitter paper (some painted in aqua) and the Simple Stories album in aqua and kraft.

 Here you can see all the sparkle

Intro or title page | Vellum with silver stars, silver glitter paper and die.

First Divider | 6 DEE stamp sets, acrylic paints, flexible modeling paste, stencil, color shine, Silhouette files, wooden house, washi tape, stamp roller...
This page looks busy with ballet, sports, baking, home.... but that is exactly her life! busy!

This is the first time I create something with modeling paste/stencil

First Photo Page/Back of First Divider | Paste, acrylic paint, dies; DEE stamps, Copics, glitter pen, PL card stamped (Mi Favorita and Fecha).

First Writing Page | Die, washi tape

Second Divider | DEE stamp, dies, Mod Podge, TH distress inks

I tried to keep everything in the Aqua/Red/White palette, but somehow the distress inks turned greenish after adding the Mod Podge.  

Second Photo Page/Back of second divider | Acrylic paint, dies, MME embellishments, sequins, Glossy Accents.

Second Writing Page | Washi tape and MME embellishments.

Third Divider Page | Several dies, vellum, washi tape.

Third Photo Page/Back of third divider page | Dies, Echo Park embellishments/stickers.

Third Writing Page and Other | Lots of dies, glassine bag, paper clips etc.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed.  She can use this in on the the protector's 4x4 pockets or adhere it to one of the note pages.

For this section I decided to cut up dies and include bits and pieces so that she can decorate herself.  I wanted to continue adding more stamping but Hey!! she is DEE's owner and she can choose which stamps she uses as she documents her December!

Abby can use the first section to either document December 1-23 or all those eventful moments of her life that include my goddaughter's recital, her son's sports events, all the baking she did and several celebrations/parties she attended.  She can add photo protectors, more writing pages or even additional dividers.
The second section is intended to document Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
The third section I am sure will be filled up to the rim with lots of photos from her birthday celebration and the Scrap event she is holding in Mexico.

Happy Birthday Comadrita!!  Love Ya!!

NEXT is Annie
