90th Birthday Album ~ Sisters

Hi everyone!!  Can you believe how close it is to Christmas!!!!  You will be seeing quite a few more birthday posts from me in the next week or so !!  I've got to get this album done and get it mailed out in time for DH's aunt to open it for Christmas...  And don't even mention Christmas Cards...  I will probably just  send a handful of those out this year...  I just waited too long to start on them...  Next year I'm going to do the monthly Christmas Card Challenge so I will have 'em made in time..  Anyway.... back to this layout...  I used Creative Scrappers Sketch No. 185 as my inspiration for this layout....
I thought the sketch was perfect for the Birthday Album I'm making..  And I really loved the doily.. I've been using a lot of them in this album.. But I didn't want to use all of those  flowers, so instead I used Prima Swirls..

Here are a few close ups...

Bottom Right Corner ~ You can see my Distressed Edges, Prima Flower, Prima Say It In Crystals, MS Butterfly, Prima Say It In Pearls, Ribbon, and MS Double Arches Punched Edge..

Top Left Corner ~ More Distressed Edges, the rest of the Prima Say It In Crystals, Doily with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, and MS Eyelet Lace Punched Edges..

Top Right Corner ~  More Distressed Edges,  Stick on Letters, Pearl/Lace, MS Butterflies, Prima Say It In Pearls, Doily, and MS Eyelet Lace Punched Edges..

And finally, the tag... which is punched out of shimmery pink paper and I've added a gemstone to it.. To me the gemstone looks like maybe an earring...

Here are a few challenges this layout will qualify for...
Allsorts Challenge ~ Going Around In Circles (doily)
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge ~ Christmas Present (This layout will go in the Album I am making for DH's Aunt for Christmas)
Papertake Weekly Challenge ~ Anything Goes (with an option of adding some Dangly)
Pile It On ~ Bling It Up

Here is a list of scrappy things I used on this layout...

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace Border Punch
