Birthday Prince

Front and Inside booklet

Another two pages

Designed by Lynda Cheney - Created by Karen Binnie

This page was my grandson's second birthday. I saw the cupcakes and the paper and knew I had to use them for this page. This design also has a little booklet so you can show off many photos from the occassion. Because I had many photos of the birthday I also created another two pages.

Happy Creating
