Birthday mini album!

For DS's 4th birthday, we went to Great Wolf Lodge in the Pocono's again. It's basically an indoor water park, with a lodge-themed hotel. So fun for the kids. Last month, I won Bo Bunny's card challenge, so they sent me their awesome new birthday-themed line, "Surprise". The colors and various elements were perfect for this mini album. The mini itself is Kaisercraft MDF Wood.

The cover. I cut the "4" out of one of the sheets of paper, backed it on more paper, and then covered it with glossy accents to make an embellishments out of it. I also popped it up with foam adhesive:

A close-up of the cover. I put an October Afternoon metal flair in the star, and then covered around it with glossy accents... I love how it came out:

This mini was so perfect with all the star and arrow-shaped pages:

LOL..."The Claw"! I always think of Toy Story now, when I hear that:

Dexter was such a pro at this lily-pad jumping by the end... he was totally fearless (and it's not an easy challenge, trust me!):

I made a pocket to store their "Paw Passes", and here is a close-up of one of the passes pulled out:

The kids got to go play bowling, and they also got these books made for each. They got their pictures taken in various poses, and then they were inserted into the story and the story illustrations as one of the characters... how cool is that?!

The stuffed animals the kids got to make (they were soooo excited!):

And the back:
