Busy Bee

Happy Friday!!

Well for the first time in a week, I was able to actually sit down and get a project completed, and worked on another one.  Whew.... many many hours today and now my back is letting me know.  lol

I completed the mini wedding album for Carissa.  I put everything in there down to the smallest detail, at least I think I did.  I incorporated all of her colors into the binding which turned out so cute.  I just love it and hope you enjoy the pictures of it.  You may want to refill your coffee mug as their are quiet a few.  I didn't retake the other ones that I had already posted.  It turned out a lot thicker than I had originally planned but it captures the entire wedding :)

The front cover with the bling on the binding and I put a heart and key charm on it.

A page for the ring pictures and in the pocket, a journal tag and other tags that they can add more pictures too.  Just love these pockets :)

The Bride/Groom page.  I finished off the frame for the bride so the sparkles wouldn't go everywhere and I put the bling for the buttons on the shirt and made a bling coursage for the lapel.

Extra tags I made for pictures and journaling for the bride and groom.

A page for her bouquet with extra tags to throwing the bouquet.

The finished cake.  The 2 layers that have their information on it both pull out and they can add pictures of the cake portion.

The toast along with more tags in the pockets.

Tags for pictures of the bridesmaids and groomsmen.

A page for the wedding party pictures along with yes, more tags for pictures and journaling.  lol

This would be my page for pictures :)  with extra tags.

A page for Brandon's Mom's pictures along with extra tags for more :)  I tell you, these pockets are fantastic!!

A special little page for the adoreable ring bearer and flower girl with more tags in the pocket.

I also started working on some thank you cards for those who were at my 50th birthday party.  It is always nice to have personalized ones for those you care about.  I'm not done but here is the start of them.

Then last but not least, I received these 2 adoreable plaques from a good friend of mine for my birthday.  She told me she saw them and said yup, that is definitely Laura and how she lives her life.  I just love them.

Well hoping things continue to slow down so I can get some more half done projects completed this weekend.  Have a great day!!
