Wedding Memories....

Hi All :)

Last week I finished a project that was a bit of a 'What shall we do???' dilemma!

A friend I work with was going to a 'Secret Wedding', not that secret that the Bride & Groom didn't know - just secret enough that they wanted to do it quietly without a fuss and with only a handful of family in attendance.
My friend orders loads of cards and Nappy Cakes off me.....and anything else I fancy playing with actually - so we had to come up with a special gift.

The card was easy enough - she'd sent me a stunning photo she wanted using and as there was no 'colour-scheme' I felt a black & white theme would be best, all trimmed with silver.

Then for that special gift we decided on a 'Wedding Memories Book'! As they weren't having a formal photographer I thought this type of scrap book gift would work well. I cut lots of cards with Nesties for the guests to write on (I couldn't stand the thought of them writing on the actual pages....they might use different coloured pens!) I also included some 'bits & pieces' for her to decorate the pages with.

 It was  wrapped in a piece of gem encrusted Organza material and placed in a matching box....

Here's a couple of close ups of some of the details....

She e-mailed me yesterday and said it was a HUGE hit! They loved it :)
