Anniversary time

On December 26th (yes I know, what were we thinking), Mike and I celebrated our 9 year anniversary. He surprised me with a leather jacket because apparently the gift for nine years is leather (no, I did not know that). I thought we'd agreed no gifts, so I felt a little bad. Especially since I planned on making a book for him, but my papers didn't arrive until the 27th. Anyway, here's the card. I used some other papers as I was waiting on my new CTMH Silhouette papers.

I had found this star album kit a while back at the LSS and knew it would be perfect for an anniversary album. Then when I got the new CTMH catalog, I knew I wanted to use the Silhouette papers. I included a picture from each year we've been married. Here's the front, top and a couple of the inside pages.

Nicole I wish I had your talent. I can't believe how nice this turned out. Im not sure my husband would even glance twice at it so I doubt I would put forth that much effort, lol, VERY NICE! Happy New Year!

this is fabulous, so much better than the one I made for my DH. It is our 15th anniversary this week! We had problems getting flowers etc after New Year so I can imagine the problems you had on boxing day!
Congrats on your 9 years and Happy New Year!

Very nice! I've wanted to make one of these but they look so intimidating! I guess I need to find a kit. You did a great job decorating it. I'm sure your hubby loved it.
