I finally finished the wedding scrapbook and it has been packed off in the post to my friend. You may remember that one of my oldest friends got married in April and asked me to take the photographs. To say I was anxious about doing this is an understatement, but I had a go and then made up an album to give to the happy couple. Christine's style is very spare, and she doesn't go in for girly frilliness, but she does love flowers, so I tried to incorporate this into the album. I forgot to take photographs of all the layouts, but if you are interested in scrap booking, grab a cup of coffee and have a browse through some that were included.

Apart from the first and last page, I did double page layouts throughout the album
I used PTI flower and button dies to make the floral embellishments on this page, and Cam came up trumps for the lettering again.
The rose background paper had touches of glitter on it too.
The PTI half and half dies and heart border die were used on this page.
Christine's daughters are so gorgeous and needed little embellishment. I just used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the champagne glasses in the centre of the page.
The letters were cut on Cam.
I love these few pictures of Simon that I snapped as he was waiting for Christine to come downstairs in her wedding outfit. Another Cuttlebug embossing folder and letters from Cam were all that was needed.
This beautiful paper could have been left unembellished but I had to add a couple of PTI butterflies to give a little dimension.
I cut into one of the lower leaves so it popped over the photograph.
Christine's lovely Grandchildren were Bridesmaids
and I used the PTI banner diesand some metal words to decorate this layout.
I was amazed how well these thin letters were cut by Cam!
I used one of the PTI Think Big Favourites stamp for the 'Celebrate' panel
and tiny squares of coordinating paper to make the borders
This next layout shows photos of them signing the register after the ceremony. (The bottom photo shows me and my husband with them after we witnessed their signatures.)
I used stamps from PTI Love Tags and the Christmas Labels die to embellish the page.
Some metal flower plaques and a metal plate saying 'to have and to hold' is on the opposite page.
I made the final page suitable for a photo frame, in case they would like to take it out of the album.
I used some Love Lives Here dies, a Memory Box foliage die, and some brown ribbon on this page. The captions reads 'Christine and Simon have tied the knot, 4th April 2012 and underneath I have used some twine to tie a knot and fixed it to the page.
Phew! If you have stuck with me to this point - thank you. I didn't realise what a long post it would turn out to be. I hope they like it!
