    Default 170 snap shots, 20 pages and 4 hours

    Equels a wedding album with 107 cropped and scroapbooked pictures for my cousen and her new husband of there wedding from my views this past 6/7/08.

    I am in NY and had non of my scrap booking supplies with me (they are home in GA). Bought a 20 page book with black pages, 2 sheets of wedding clear stickers (sayings) and 4oz of random pastel card stock 3x3 paper and a pair of scalloped edge sisers. Cost $60 after picture prints. After 4 hours of working on it all the pages are full.

    I love the first 12 of the book they are the formal pages and out layouts (took me the most time) of the traditional wedding events. Then I have 5 pages of other parts of the wedding mostly dancing and party shots still scrap booked just more a relaxed feel to them. And the last 2 pages are more like collages. They are full of only smaller cut out shaped pictures no layout just page covering with arranged pictures, they are of the guest I know she will like to remember at the wedding, mostly head shots. Page 18 1 is of me and her in candid shots during the day I was her matron of honor and she is like a sister to me and I had a hard time not putting them all in so I just made a page dictated to us.

    I love it but I hope her DH won't be upset that other then the formal shots his family is not represented to the extent mine is (my camera just did not point at them that day I guess) in the book. I am giving it to them tonight as a late wedding gift.

    I also had all the prints put on CD's for them so they can see them uncropped or order more if they like, and have the 60 snap shots that I did not deam scrapbook worthy to hand them also.

    So my plan is to give this to her and we got him a Irish cookbook ($6) and AAA pocket travel Ireland book ($9) to open as she is looking at the scrapbook. They are going to Ireland for honeymoon in 4 weeks.

    Dose that sound like a good wedding gift? $75 spent on everything. I hope so, and it will give them some wedding pics to look at while they wait on the professional ones.

    And can you believe I wrapped it all up before taking a pic to share with everyone!! OOps maybe after she opens it I can get some shots of the inside pages for you.

    "Is that a good wedding gift?!" It's a FABULOUS gift!!! WOW, she's gonna love it! I hope you can catch some pics when she opens it, because I'm doing the same for my sister for her wedding present. That was so sweet of you.

    They loved it. And where surprised at how many shots I got. They said I capture the day just like they want to remember it. Funny thing is the Candi college page with random head shots of guest is the page they had the most fun looking at. And Kris loved seeing the ones taken of her in the Solon getting all ready in her sweat suit that said "future Mrs .... " on the back with her hair all done and Vale on (I got a pic of that page to post soon). They thought the CD of all the uncapped pics was a nice addition to the scrapbook. It was so nice to hear over and over as they looked at it "When did you have time to do this?" And "Now I can bring it to school before it ends and show everyone pics." (they are both teachers) Many people have sent e-mails with photos to them, but this is the first set of prints they have received and to have them in a book the show off was so much fun to watch them flip each page. When I gave it to her she thought it was an empty album and was even gratful for that. I wish I got a shot of her face when I told her to open it. And then more when she realized it was a full done book not just the first page.

    It was fun so often you never see the bride and groom open the gift you get them. Even the AAA travel book they got all excited over as so far they have nothing like if for the trip and Kirs LOL when he saw the cookbook as he is chef in the house hold.

    At first I was upset to be doing with out my tools. But after it was done it was cool to see the entire book not only have a wedding theme but the use of same colored papers and scalloped edge cropping. It definitely gave it a unity effect. It also made the work of scrap booking go much faster as I could crop all the pics at once and then worry about placement after the cutting was done.

    Pic of opening coming after we get home next week so I can upload to our computer.

    I did a similar thing for friends last summer! I'd just started scrapbooking and I had nothing with me but we had all of these pics of their wedding and I wanted to DO something with them. Bought a paper trimmer, a kit and some extra embellishments and gave it to them a few days after the wedding. They were SO excited to have something so quickly and I loved making them something so unique!! That's the thing I love most about this hobby--really, we are gifting lots of memories

    Can't wait to see your pics!

    and Snacky, my sunshine boy.

    Sweet angels in our hearts 6/09 & 9/10. I will always carry you.
