Happy 50th Birthday Anneke !

My cousin Anneke, who lives too far away in Amsterdam,  turned 50 this summer.    She celebrated with a huge party this past Friday night which looked like a lot of fun in the photos !    In honour of her birthday a group of her 'scrapping' friends & family, better known as the 'Glossy Accents Ladies'  created a mini album (15 cm x 20 cm) to present to her at the party.

My sister Marn, who also lives too far away in Amsterdam, was here on vacation two weeks ago.   We had fun working together on this 'mini lay-out' for Anneke's album.  We picked a photo of the three of us on Queen's Day in 2010.   Orange is very prominent on that day, so we used it on both sides of our lay-out.    Everyone included a recipe on the back so Marn choose a recipe for one of Anneke's favourite dips !

Queen's day is an annual event on April 30th, downtown Amsterdam.  It's a great day where everyone comes out, young & old, to relax and socialize in a very festive atmosphere.  

Happy Birthday Anneke !
