Eliana's Album

Eliana celebrated her Bat Mitzvah last month. I made an album for her brother, a Liverpool F.C. fan, back in 2013, and Mum asked me to make one for her daughter too. She is a keen gymnast, Mum told me, and loves anything chocolate - especially Dairy Milk. She is a fan of American Girl dolls, loves Ben and Jerry’s Cookie Dough ice cream, and enjoys watching YouTube clips on her Apple Mac laptop. Eliana is fond of the books from the Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Christie, favours Converse high-tops, and likes playing around with Instagram, the photo sharing service, on her iPhone 5s too. Her favourite colours - which were also the theme colours for the Bat Mitzvah celebration - are mint and lilac.
I had a lot to work with!
I showed long-haired Eliana doing the splits on the front of her album. Her American Doll, dressed in white top and blue leggings as specified, is in her arms. To her right is her phone with the Instagram logo on it, and her favourite Poirot book. To her left is a purple Dairy Milk bar and some Ben and Jerry's Cookie Dough ice cream. Her laptop is open with the You Tube logo on the screen. Mint coloured Converse high-tops made it into the picture too.
The Hebrew writing displays her name, Eliana Carmel.
I decorated several of the pages inside the album too. I opened with another gymnastics pose, then added some more ice cream - Cookie Dough and Cookies and Cream this time. Next I showed Eliana's American Doll once again, then included her laptop and phone, displaying the important YouTube and Instagram logos. Finally a Dairy Milk bar appeared once again, plus another delicious treat, a Twirl. Eliana certainly has good taste in English chocolate. Yum!

Adorable details! I love Ben and Jerry's. We are fortunate enough to live close enough to drive to one of the factories in Vermont. They have samples of ice cream that don't make it to market. So fun!
