Default Kit suggestions, 75th birthday album

My mother is turning 75 this month, and of course we won't be able to gather and celebrate in person. So I'm making a photobook for her with some pages that are cards/messages from the extended family and some that are photos from throughout her life. (Only the photo pages will be scrapped--the card pages will just be the handmade cards.) I have 1 page from her childhood and 1 from my parents' wedding, and then from the mid-1970's through today I have 2-4 pages per decade. Since I need to pull the entire thing together in just a few days, I'd like to use 1 or 2 kits for the entire book. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Book is finished and ordered! Just in case anyone else finds themselves looking for a very versatile kit for an entire album, I'll share what I ended up using. I love using the limited edition special event collabs for things like this since they're huge.

My main kit was the SSD Collab Best Day Ever.



I also made some pages with the 20/20 Collab.



And I ended up using a few papers to mount everyone's hand made (or digital) card. Those were from a birthday kit by Flergs and Studio Basic, but it looks like it was retired since I can't find it in the shop.

Using the big collab kit was a great idea - I wouldn't even have thought of that! I've struggled before with having to create more papers (usually solids or small prints) and use additional elements from all over when I try to do an album with a single kit. Thanks for sharing!
