25th Anniversary Acrylic Album ....

I'm in search of ideas from you magnificent, creative paper crafters. ;-) I'll be the first to admit that I need all of my crafty blog buds to help me get my creative juices brewing.....
My plans are to make an acrylic album for someone special, but not really sure what I'm going to do. It's a 25th anniversary so I need to incorporate silver somehow....probably heat embellishing....not sure.
I do think that I'm going to use black cs, black & white filigree patterned paper(Close To My Heart's B&T Silhouette), twilight blue cs, and 2 or 3 patterned papers (CTMH's B&T paper) that are made with the twilight blue and white. I spent an hour last night putting papers together to see how they would look. I wanted to make sure I'd get the "anniversary" feel and I wanted to use colors which would reflect the 25th anniversary.
This project might just be the one to make me start using my CuttleBug.....FINALLY!!!
Any thoughts or ideas? Do you have an example of something made for a silver/25th anniversary that you want to share? If you leave a link to your creation, I will visit your site/project to get your "take" on 25th (or any other) anniversary colors and/or embellishing.
I'm real excited about making this acrylic album because the acrylic albums that De and I worked on are beautiful!! I love these things!! They make such a special gift for anyone.....
Your comments, ideas, & suggestions are gratefully appreciated and cherished. Thanks so much for dropping in at My Den. :-)
Oh! Sorry I haven't posted any projects, creations, or pictures in so long. I have been toiling away in my Scrappin' Den making a gift for my sister.....and I am so thrilled with the finished product! That's all I'm telling you about it until I get it posted here. I know she is going to love it!!!!
On Wednesday, I will be posting some pictures of the album that De & I created. It's made with the NOTEBOOK Level 2 paper pack....It's so pretty; I can't wait to get a picture of it here.

Hi Barbara,
If you're still looking for inspiration try this site
Heart Prints
I've tried to link it - if it doesn't work just type in Heart Prints And go to gallery. Janet Nelson has many examples of all types including cuttlebug. So if you haven't used it yet - you will after seeing Janet's creations.
