Layout for 90th Birthday Album

Hi everyone!!  Hope you're having a great Friday!  It's beautiful here in South/Central Texas today and so it's been a little hard for me to come out here to my scrap room and start scrapping.  The weather is gorgeous!! But, I have a lot of scrapping to do so I better get started...  Last month my husband's aunt celebrated her 90th Birthday and was given a big party.  Rick and I were lucky enough to be able to be there also.  We had a lot of fun... saw lots of family and  a lot of people we didn't know...  A couple of weeks ago one of her nieces from her husband's side ask me if I would do a scrapbook of the event..  They had a photographer there and she has sent me many photos and more to come... so along with my DT projects, I now need to get this done as soon as I can...  But, don't get me wrong, I'm honored that they have ask me to do this..   Anyway, this is one of the pages I've made so far.   Here are a few of the family enjoying the appetizers before the party began..   Also want to point out that the background was made with one of the napkins from the appetizer table...
Here is a close up showing you the napkin..

You probably noticed that I don't have as much bulk/bling on this layout like most of my others, but we have to get all of the pages in 1 photo album so I'm having to refrain myself from using too much,  but I still hope I've accomplished beauty and elegance!!

I'll have another page to share next Tuesday, and I also have a "Spooky" Halloween project I will post Sunday, please check back to see those!!  And who knows I may have more things inbetween... I do have to get my grandbabies Halloween Cards made..  When I do I will post those too... 

Now if any of Aunt Leola's family are looking at these, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, don't say anything about this album, it's a SURPRISE!!!!!!  I just know some of you may not get to see them but I wanted to share them with you, too!!
