Silver Wedding Anniversary with a difference!!

This is my first BIG special commission and it had me really worried I can tell you! EEKS!!

I have done scrapbooking before, but only ever for me and my family, never for someone else.

The man in the photos wanted to do 'something different' for his wife for their 25th wedding anniversary, and this is what we came up with (it was a conspiracy you see).

We chose the K and Co Madelline range for this, 12x12 papers, matt pack, rub-ons and journaling labels. The other 'bits and bobs' are just stuff from my stash! Except the gold ribbon and bow from the first wedding page, that came from a box of chocolates!! lol.

Anyway, he kind of gave me a 'free hand' with this project and I'm glad he did really, because as the couple are Indian I would have really struggled in places. Still I think I've covered all the bases, and judging by the phone call I received after he presented it to her, everyone was thrilled to bits!!

I have now been asked to add to it later on when the sons graduation photos are done, so this is going to be an ongoing project.

I can now relax a bit knowing it went down well and everybody liked it.

Apologies for the pictures though, these things are not really that easy to photograph, and I did my best.

I feel I still have a lot to learn on the Scrapbooking side of things, so I'll keep doing 'research' and playing with mini albums, untill I get better at it.

Not bad for a 'proper' first attempt though, even if I do say so myself! lol.

Thanks for looking in and so sorry for the mega post.

Take care
