Hadar's Album

Hadar's Bat Mitzvah album was the FOURTH album I have made for this family. She has three big brothers you see and they have all received one of my albums for their Bar Mitzvah. I made an album for Adir back in 2012, Omri in 2014 and Gilad in 2016. A few years break and it was recently their sister's turn to celebrate.
Hadar loves gymnastics, scooting and swimming and of course Netflix and TikTok too. Mum told me that Hadar uses cartwheeling as her mode of transportation and asked if I could show her doing a cartwheel on the front of the album. She sent me a picture of her daughter's scooter too, so that I could get the colours exactly right!
I have shown Hadar in the purple leotard and black tights that she wears for gymnastics on the front of the album. She is doing the requested cartwheel. Her long brown hair is loose, with curls flowing everywhere. Mum said that wearing her hair like that has become "her thing". I added her pink scooter in the background, along with her white laptop computer. Netflix is open on the screen. Next to her is a swimming cap and goggles. Hadar had chosen a colour scheme of pastel pink, purple and blue for her Bat Mitzvah celebration, so I made sure to use all those colours on the album cover.
I decorated 5 pages inside Hadar's album as well. The first page showed her doing a cartwheel once again, above. Next I added her pink scooter, below, followed by Netflix on her laptop, the TikTok logo with some music notes and finally, a tiny little paper portrait of Hadar swimming. Each page was decorated with a purple flower too.
Hadar was delighted with her album and I was thrilled to see it on the reception table at her Bat Mitzvah celebration. "It's amazing!!! She loves it." mum wrote to me. "Thanks so much. You are so talented."
* Just for a bit of fun, I searched my blog and found the card I made when Hadar was born back in 2009!
