Retirement Album


I was asked to make a retirement card for a retiring member of staff (actually that is a very inapt adjective to describe the individual concerned!) Obviously there are loads of people to sign and there's going to be a party etc etc so it needed to have a lot of space but I hate big cards - you can never seem to get a heavy enough card in the right size. So I decided to alter a boardbook to make a very personalised card/album. It has a sentiment at the front with six pages for messages, then a 4 page photo montage with a further 4 blank pages either for extra messages or photos from the retirement party. I have personalised the front with pieces of text and music score that I think he might appreciate if he notices and made lots of silly comments on the photos. The line drawing on the front is just from a photo and then triple embossed to make it into a glossy tile. I hope he likes it one is never really sure if people like the fuss. The photos were a real pain as some were very old but in the end I think it looks quite good.
