A LITTLE TABLE-TOP WEDDING MINI ALBUM

Hi!  I finally made it back!!!  Thank you so much for being patient in waiting for me; I've been trying to post this project since yesterday but was detained by the hubby all day yesterday, and immediately after posting the RAK winners earlier this evening we received unexpected company ( a nice surprise and most pleasant visit).

Okay, at last I get to share the little wedding project I've been promising.  It's a little coin envelope table-top mini wedding photo book.  This is the top of the book and the letter "Z" is the last initial of the couple receiving it:


The book is kept closed by a tab with a magnet attached and each of the envelopes hold a tag which is removed by pulling it out using the rhinestones at the top of the tags.  The embellishment on the first page is a bird made of polymer clay that I molded, painted and glittered:


Here's a picture with all the tags on the envelope-pages pulled out:


There are also tags tucked into the top of the album that can be pulled out for pictures:


And, there are pockets with more tags that pull out for photos and/or to hold sweet little love notes...lol:




Although I haven't shown each individual page, there is embossing, pearl and crystal swirls, and wedding bell Peel-Offs on the pages; you may need to click on the photos just to get a better view of what I do have pictured. 

This was such a fun project, and I really wish you could see this up close and personal because it really looks better in person than the pictures give it justice.   I haven't gotten to it yet but I'm going to make a matching box with a wedding wish on the top and give this is lieu of a card to the happy couple.  I hope they like it!  I hope you like it too!!!

Would you believe I'm working on another wedding project!  Don't know how soon it'll be before it's completed but you will be one of the first to see it... lol!!!

The other evening I had the opportunity to visit with many of you, and so enjoyed your projects or just saying "hi".  Unfortunately, I've still got a lot more rounds to make, so I'll be seeing more of you as soon as I can.

In the meantime, as I'll be spending time this weekend doing some last minute Mother's Day shopping and celebrating with auntie and family, I wish you all a very happy and blessed Mother's Day!

Hugs!

How are you doing these days? I feel like it has been an eternity since I visited your blog. Well, it has been an eternity since I visited anyone. I have been swamped ith school work and helping my parents out.

School is finally out and things seem to be sloing down, and I am so glad.

Woww!! Is this album a stunner or what! I love all the lace around the edge and that pretty bling. When i sa the inside, it just blew my mind. Each and every component: JUST BEAUTIFUL!!!

I will be back to visit very soon.
Love you,
Charlotte
