Neverending Birthday card

Hello! today I want to show the neverending card I made for my son.  It took FOREVER! because when I got into the baby pictures and more, I couldn't stop looking and looking at the pictures from both of my sons' "little kid" years. 
                  Now, back to the card: I learned the technique from http://www.cardmakingparadise.com/neverending%20card.html.
(Thanks for the clear and enjoyable video!) I wanted to use two-sided paper/cardstock so used K&Company designer mat pad "Small Wonders Boy".  It took a little more planning to keep from cutting the photos in a bad place but I think it came out ok.  The font is from Cricut "Cursive 101" and I used my Gypsy to weld the letters.  'Love that Gypsy!!!
       Anyway! the card was a hit and everyone had fun with it! Now I've GOT to do some more cutting for Christmas cards! But I just saw a great Thanksgiving center piece that gave me some ideas....



Bye for now - Take good care!
