More than a Birthday card - Maja Design

Hello all my beautiful friends
I am so grateful to have you here .

 On May 21st , my twin sister Lorraine and I celebrated our 65th Birthday . 
'Twins' ... celebrating 65 years together x
I am on the right .

Below are some early photos of us
 when we were age 5, with our friend Libby .

We were age 23 here .
we had this photo on our business card for our first hairdressing salon in 1973
Salon Gemini .

I wanted to create a special card
 so I decided to use a concertina Base and add lots of tags and notes
 as a celebration of our life together .'Twins' ... celebrating 65 years together x


When I handed it to Lorraine her eyes lit up and she smiled and laughed 
as she took in all the details,
 the bits and pieces and all the memories I journalled about .
 Here is a view of the side section, 
showing how the concertina foundation is perfect for holding the tags and cards in place. 
This paper collection has the perfect tags , a calendar and little darling butterflies .
 All the items can be lifted out and moved around . 
Nothing is glued in permanetly so I can also add items later if desired  .

 I included some photos when we were small children in a little tag/pocket .

 Inside this tag/card holds some photos, quotes and some journaling .
I had such fun creating this project I am making another one for my daughter .

Sofiero  Collection - A romantic picnic in the park…….
 Vintage Spring Basics – Days to remember , 6th May. 
 Thanks for popping by my little blog
 and happy scrapping until next time we meet here .. take care x
