Libi's Album

Libi's brother Ariel celebrated his Bar Mitzvah back in 2013 and I made him an album for his party. This time it was Libi's turn to celebrate her Bat Mitzvah and once again her parents asked me to make an album to mark the occasion.
Libi's Mum sent me a long list of her interests which included magic, jokes, science, astronomy, drums, the American reality competition series Cupcake Wars, and guinea pigs! After discussing with Mum which hobby should feature most predominantly, it was decided that I would show Libi playing the drums. I have shown her sitting at her red drum kit. In one hand she has a drum stick, but in the other a pack of cards, since she really likes doing card tricks as well. To her right are some planets, which illustrate her interest in astronomy, and on the front of the bass drum is the beginning of one of her favourite "Knock-knock" jokes.
Since Libi likes red and gold, I made the background box red and the lettering gold. The album opens the Hebrew way, from right to left, and Libi's name is in Hebrew, with the words Bat Mitzvah and the Hebrew date of her Bat Mitzvah celebration underneath.
I decorated several of the pages inside the album too. I opened with a page featuring a cute little guinea pig, then added some more playing cards on the next embellished page. Some test tubes full of some interesting coloured potions, depict Libi's favourite subject, science. The next page featured the logo of the Cupcake Wars competition, along with some yummy-looking iced cupcakes, and lastly, another page was filled with planets and a telescope, since Libi is keen on astronomy. 
Mum was thrilled when she saw the album. "Incredible book! Thanks so much!" she wrote.
Always nice to have a happy customer!
