This mini album is for the #10 – 52 challenge. Note: This mini album measures 8” x 8”. Each page has 8 holes punched in (with eyelets) to be held together by ribbons. Sorry each page is separate – it was easier with the scanner this way.
I was going to give this mini album as a gift for an upcoming wedding, but my son said “aw mom, go to Target and get something they registered for.' I thought – You know – I think I'll do just that, and keep this for myself for now. There's plenty of space for photos, but I have also added a bunch of ‘Suggestions for a Happy Marriage'. Please keep in mind that sometimes I have a weird sense of humor and… it kinda shows here.
I originally got the idea for this a while back, when I made an anniversary card for my sister, using some of the same quotes. But her book didn't have places for pictures. It was more of a large 4-page card. So this time I wanted it to have places for pictures with it.
Computer made quadruple heart with big LOVE and filled with little ‘love's. Paper flowers, and loads of awesome Basic Grey Rub-ons. Also cute little clock embellishment from my local scrapbook store (unknown maker)
