Avital's Album

Avital knew exactly what she wanted on her Bat Mitzvah album. She had checked out some of my previous designs and was ready with her list of likes. She wanted music notes on the cover, to represent her piano playing, and her Mum told me that she likes reading, is good at maths, and enjoys riding her bike. Avital is also a fan of Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate (me too!) and asked for some to appear on the cover. She loves monkeys, and her purple mobile phone too. Her favourite colours are purple and mint green.
I have shown long-haired Avital with a maths book in one hand. Maths symbols and the number 12 (the age that Jewish girls become a Bat Mitzvah) cover the book. In her other hand she is holding a Dairy Milk bar. Her mint green bike is behind her, along with her phone, a cute little monkey and some music notes. The background box is purple and her t-shirt mint green, Avital's favourite colours.
Her name, the words Bat Mitzvah and the date are displayed in Hebrew. The album also opens the Hebrew way, from right to left, as Avital's Mum requested. There is a Magen David, the Star of David, in two corners on the album cover, to add a Jewish element to the design.
Five pages inside the book cover Avital's various interests. The opening page features some music notes in her favourite colours, above, followed by a page which displays her mint green bike. Next I included a Dairy Milk chocolate bar wrapped in purple, along with a few tiny cubes of chocolate. A monkey clinging on to the page came next and, finally, a hand holding up a mobile phone completes Avital's list of favourite things!
Mum wrote to me to tell me that she and Avital had really enjoyed looking at all the albums I've created, and that Avital was very happy with the one I had made for her. "She loves it! Thank you so much." Mum said.
She was also kind enough to send me this wonderful photo of Avital's album being used at her Bat Mitzvah celebration. They left coloured pens and stickers out for her friends to write messages and decorate the pages for Avital. Mum said that the girls loved it, and that the album looked nice on the table and was really part of the celebration!

What a feast! You managed to show all of her favorite things in one card - impressive! I thought that the idea of her mom so everyone could write her a message, was super practical and will be great memory for later.Many thanks for sharing this card of Avital's Bat Mitzvah with SEASONS - truly heart warming!
Have a lovely week:)

Wonderful card yet again. I think it is so neat that you really make these "personal" to each of the people who receive them.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I can imagine her look of pleasure when she first saw the notebook. You do beautiful work.
