Adventure Awaits - A 6x6 Memory Showcase Album

A friend and co-worker is retiring this week! (What a lucky gal!).   My manager asked if I would make a retirement card for our group to sign.  Of course I said YES!  Instead of making a card, I decided to make a book!  I wanted to create something more than card that all of us could write something special in.   The 6x6 Memory Showcase was the perfect choice!

Since she loves to cruise, I used the Tommy paper and Tommy Canvas Assortment.   Here are pictures of the book.


 

Front Cover

The envelope hold tags that each member of her immediate workshop could write on.

By adding foam tape around the edges of the back side of the photo mats, 
I was able to place more tags for signatures behind the pictures

One last group shot with signature tag.

Poem for retirement
I was able to print this poem directly on the sticker by removing a portion of the backing 
to stick to the paper I ran through the printer.  

Back of book.
The canvas pinwheels are layered with foam tape.
The large banner is an extra banner I had left over from the My Creations Mini Banners.

Wouldn't this be a great keepsake for someone going on a cruise?!
Not to mention - someone retiring and planning to GO on a cruise!!!
