An Aniversary Gift...

So, I started this project back in June, just before my wedding anniversary as a gift to my husband. I had the paper cut and stuck down to the chipboard album and about half of the pictures scanned onto my computer... that was as far as I got! This weekend I finally got through the rest of the scanning, cropping, and printing of the pictures. I cropped at my friend Dawnette's house on Saturday night and got it all finished! Hee! Here it is- the album says Happy Together:

Book by Bo Bunny; patterned paper and flowers by Prima Marketing; Glitter Mist by Tattered Angels; Masks, rhinestone strips and stickers by Heidi Swapp; Stickers by 7Gypsys; Assorted ribbons and buttons...

Each photo is hand cut and sanded to give it an older look. I also sanded around the edge of the book to give it some texture. I also spritzed it with a couple of colors of the Glitter Mist, using Masks here and there... you really can't see much of these- they're pretty much covered by the pictures!

Anyways, my favorite part of this project was looking through all of our pictures together and remembering just what we were doing... It's weird how time flies, isn't it!

I also worked on another project with my neighbor and friend Robyn... she needed a gift for a new grandma! Here is what we came up with:

Don't you just love the flowers? I have a huge stash of Primas and it felt like kind of an accomplishment to use so many! We kept the inside pretty simple but there are at least three flowers on each page! Hee!

Oh, and what is up with the weather here in DC?? It is snowing right now! Just a little but I swear it was in the 60s just 2 days ago! My daughter Zoey is excited though... she is ready to catch the little snow flakes on her tongue!

Anyways, have a great evening and thanks for checking out my projects!
