Wedding Day

Today is a very important day in Perth, Western Australia.....

My dear friends, Christina and Torren get married - and I'm not there.....

Subsequently, they were given their wedding present way back in February, before we left Australia.



I made them a special wee album to display some of their wedding photo's.....
This is the box....


















I have used the gorgeous Enchanted line from Bo Bunny - so elegant and sparkly - perfect for wedding photo's.....

And the album, nestled in its box.....
























This is a flip album, inspired by the uber talented Mandy L'Estrelle, friend and fellow DT member at Inspired Crafts, my LSS in Perth. I attended one of her wonderful classes, made one of these albums with Graphic 45 Christmas Past papers, and was hooked....

Thus I recreated the album for a wedding. Would also work well as a baby album - G45s Little Darlings me thinks - just gotta wait for my stash to arrive from Australia.....waiting, waiting...


Anyway, back to the wedding album....



The top flap at the front lifts up, revealing room for two photo's and a small journaling spot....


The left side flap opens to the left, room for two more photo's and a tiny, wee journaling spot....


Next, the whole page opens to the right, more photo mats...




And a large pocket for photo's, memento's, etc....


And a huge pull out tag for another photo....




The next page (LOVE) opens downwards  - three more photo mats....


Aren't these papers gorgeous, and the sentiments are perfect for a wedding album....




So, of course, I had to make a card, in a wee box, to match.....

















A beautiful gift to make and my friends loved it.....


I hope their day is a magical one, so sad I'm not there....


Happy Wedding Day Christina & Torren....

Love & Hugs

What an amazing album this is stunning and I can only imagine how much better it looks in real life. I hope they were happy with it.
