an oldie, but goodie

for my dad’s 60th birthday i thought it would be fun to take one of his old black and white pictures and turn it into a record album cover. and so my dad’s album (danny boy) was called, “an oldie, but goodie”. each invitation was mailed out as a miniature record album with details about the party printed on a record shape paper that you pulled out of the sleeve.

for the cake, my mom made it resemble an old record player. how cool is that???

as guests left, each was sent home with a collection of songs that my dad enjoys. i found cds that resembled records and used that to burn each copy and tucked each one inside the same album cover that was used for the invitation with the addition of the song title and artists on the backside.
