50th Birthday scrapbook and Penned challenge

Hi everyone! Thank you for stopping by today!

Today I have for you my finished 50th birthday album in video. I thought it would be easiest to share the pages with you if I made a video rather then take tons of pictures of my pages. For the scrapbook, I used Creative Memories Celebrate 8x8 album kit. My first intention was to make and bind my own album using these pages but then changed my mind and bought this pretty coverset from my consultant. I love this cover and there are hearts embossed on the spine too. The scrapbook is pretty much all CM products with the exception of a few Cricut cuts.  If you are curious about my 50th birthday surprise, check out this post here.

Since this week's challenge over at Getting Cricky with K Andrews is to use pens, I am entering this in the challenge. I used my Cricut markers to draw the paisleys. The paisleys are from the Paisley Cricut cartridge. They had such cute detail to them that I thought using the markers would show off the design.

I hope you enjoyed my album video. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a great 4th of July weekend!
