In September, we celebrated my mother-in-law and father-in-law’s 50th wedding anniversary. One thing we did was have the attendees write down memories they had. some of them were hilarious! I’m so glad we did that because it was a hoot to read through all of them :).
Anyway, now some months later, I finally got around to putting the memories into a book. I was looking for ideas, and saw several albums made from a pattern by Kathy Orta, called a mini album. I just love the look. Everything is handmade, from the covers to the binding system to the pages. The pages are awesome because they are filled from one end to the other with pockets which makes tons of places for tags and photo mats. I also added some handmade flowers that I’ve been learning to make.
Here are my results in a quick slide show on YouTube with their favorite song, Theme from A Summer Place.
