Authentic Beauty Mini Album/13th Birthday

It's official! My husband and I are now the parents of a bona fide teenager! Our older daughter turns 13 today. (Happy Flag Day, by the way!)

To help her celebrate, I made her this mini album using a My Creations 3-ring binder. The cover says "Authentic Beauty comes from within." I got the idea from a class at Big Picture Classes called the Mirror Project. I was also inspired by my friend Tresa Black's mini album tutorials (which can be found on her blog.)

The quote on the inside front cover/dedication page comes from the class, as do many of the "Authentic beauty is..." statements.

I really hope that our sweet girl knows how beautiful she is, inside and out!

You will have to click on each photo to see them up close and personal if you'd like.

I used way too many CTMH products to name, but if you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments section. I'll answer them as soon as I can.

Thanks for looking! Wish us luck as we navigate this new territory!
