The Start of a Big Project

So I'm sure all my followers have heard me going on about my best friend's wedding three weeks ago. Well I only managed to take one photo on the actual day as I was just too busy with my Maid of Honour duties. Luckily my BIL was the official photographer so as soon as the happy couple returned from their honeymoon I was able to place a big Photobox order and make a start on the album.

The photos are absolutely beautiful and I'm so inspired, I can't wait to scrap them all! My first layout was of their first dance. I used Crate Paper Portrait which I have been saving especially for their album. I have decided to keep the whole album uniform by using white cardstock backgrounds but other than that anything goes! I used a line from their song as the little.
This second layout is one I've had in my head for over a year! When she bought her dress I kept a note of all the details so I could document it in the album.

This page was done using scraps, I do love a thrifty layout!

I have lots more ideas and loads of photos to get through, I am planning on this being a long project that I am really going to take my time over and make them an album that they can treasure forever.

Making an album for someone is definately a labour of love, I am sure they will cherish it. We love looking at our wedding album together. I love the second layout - often cheapest is best!

What a great idea using white cardstock as the connecting element. Two and a half years after my wedding I've only scrapped one layout, and TBH I don't even really like it, not my style. I feel quite inspired to start on my own, but since the photographer gave us a beautiful album already, it has to go underneath the travel photos, and the many, many baby photos! You are a very good friend!
