Retirement Party Reveal..........


I went to a "surprise" retirement party last night for my best friends father. I got to present this scrapbook that they asked me to make. He designed commercial wallcovering for over forty years. Talk about talent, he was even published in an Interior Magazine for his accomplished work.

I was given samples of his designs that were presented in small booklets, so when you open the booklet you see the design. I was given letters that his co-workers wrote when they heard he was retiring. I also used one of his designs as part of the front cover of the book.

I had fun with it.............

Hi Jacque
Thanks for your lovely comments, I bought a album to put the pages into, I think it makes it more interesting than looking through a photo album, it will be nice for the kids to look back on when they are older, and say Mum did that.
