HELP! Restore iPhoto Library for Time Machine!

I desperately need to restore my iPhoto library from my external hard drive - I backed it up using Time Machine. I have tried to navigate to it directly by accessing the external hard drive in 'Finder' and it won't open iPhoto. I also tried to go through 'Time Machine' and again I can't open the application. I have no idea where it would have stored the photos as far as folder structure - any ideas?
I have all of my photos of my baby on this - I HAVE to restore it!!!!!

I just recently reinstalled everything from my Time Machine hard drive. I copied the iPhoto Library back to the main hard drive after finding them using the Finder. The folders I opened are as follows:
>a folder titled with the name of my computer
>a folder titled with my user account name
Once copied over I opened it using Iphoto and all photos were restored.
I'm currently using iPhoto 9.1, with Mac OS X 10.6.7.
Hopefully this helps and you get those photos back.
