Birthday/Anniversary book for my Mother In Law

I made this book yesterday. It was quite a quick and easy project. It has 12 pages inside...one for each month and I listed all the days of that month. I typed in all family members' bdays and anniversaries, but wanted to make sure it was something she could add to if she wanted. She requested this for her birthday because we have had many additions to the family since I made her last one years ago.

I put it all together with my BindItAll (one of my fav toys!). I cut the letters out on my new VERY favorite toy the Silhouette. I just got this thing Thursday and I have used it almost constantly. Love it!!!

Materials used:
Crafty Board, Treasures Blue Bonnet, Colormates Med. Lovely Lilac (WorldWin Papers)
Glitter Stack patterned paper (DCWV)
