Scrapbooking - Sam's birthday

Sam's 16th Birthday party page.
For this page, i wanted to do a page with a lot of photos. Yes i know what your thinking where are all of these photos?
Firstly i started with a piece of paper that i put vertically on to a page. I then added an accordian album to the middle of the page.
I decorated each page of the album, I added a photos of all the family that came to sams 16th birthday party.
I added spellbinders flowers around the page, and spellbinder flourishes, and some bling. 
While this looks a very simple page, i have been able to addd all the photos i wanted, without taking up a lot of pages in her already bulging 4th album.

Scrapbooking - Bob and sam

This is my Dad and my daughter, Sam is wearing her poppas hat.  This is a casual shot that I just grabbed, I really did not want to go overboard making this into an over the top page.   I used an idea across the bottom of the page fom a Darkroom door card that I saw done. I started with quite plain page, I can't remember the brand, I used the back of the page, it has a few blended in images and lines, but very simple.  I then added a strip of darkroom door paper across the top of the page, about 1.5inch wide.   I used bazill basic cardstock to frame the photo, and then stamped Darkroom door stamps saying on the left over cardstock, which i mounted to the left of the photo. I then stamped a darkroom door tree on the right hand side of the page, the page looked a little naked without it. 
Down the bottom of the page I just used a lot of shades of brown, and cut out hearts and squares, i stamped on some, and embossed others, I layered them across the page.
