Adam's 30th!

Adam's 30th Birthday was June 1st, two days before Chad was born. I decided ... don't ask me what I was thinking ... to throw him a surprise party. It turned out really great, but man did it wear me out.

A few weeks before the blessed day I sent out these invites.

Then I asked all of our close family and friends to send a card with a favorite memory or something they love about Adam. I was so happy to receive so many cards.

When I received the award of Scrapbooker of the Year, I attended CKU and took Ali Edwards Album class. It has almost taken me a year, but I finally finished the book. It is a book of Adam's life. Childhood, Teen life, and now. The pockets at the beginning of each section are journaling pockets for Adam to write his favorite memories. The envelope on the last page is for all the cards he received for his Birthday. The design of the book essentially is Ali's design. I learned so much by getting outside my design box and putting a different spin on this Album. I loved this class because I was able to still include some of my own design twists on it. Hope you enjoy!

Love this Mandy!
I have to laugh... my name is also Mandy. My husband's name is also Adam. And my husband just turned 30 on June 3rd. (June 1st is my father in law and sister's birthdays though). Oh, and we have two boys too ;) hahahaha

Anyway, just wanted to say I love the book you made honoring your hubs. It turned out so great! I'm sure he will appreciate it for years and years to come.

Blessings to you,

You are awesome! I love it and I am sure that Adam did too. I will have to remember this for when Dave turns 30! Can't wait to see you:)
