Day twelve - Sunshine on a rainy day

One of my cousins is fifty next week and his parents had asked Mom to see if she could pretty up a little photograph slip album for him. Well. When I saw it I was panicking a little. It was literally a horrid shiny little thing with some clear inserts in the middle and not much else.

Not the best but at least not looking like something that came free with the free paper.  

The clock paper is actually the same front  and back so I'm not sure why it's showing it as two different colours.  

Hope he likes it!  More to the point I hope my aunt and uncle don't mind me altering their perfectly serviceable photo album!!
