gift for a lovely friend.

my wedding anniversary is coming up in a couple of months, and i've finally gotten a chance to slow down to enjoy our pictures from that lovely day.  since i DIY-ED a lot of elements for our wedding i lost my scrapping/crafting mojo, but i think it's coming back.  our wedding was held at our close family friends Ray and Michelle Dixon.  their backyard was the ideal setting for our night wedding.  i wanted to give Michelle some of our wedding pictures, but not sure how to arrange them i held off for a few months, but i was walking through Micheal's a few weeks ago and saw this awesome album stand.  this is what i came up with...

the stand had 12 pages and these are just a few.  i'm very, very pleased with the outcome of her gift, and i'm thinking about making one for myself or even as a Christmas gift for my Maid of Honor, Jeane.  in the past i've poured myself into a few different gifts for either birthdays or Christmas, but sadly they weren't welcomed with loving arm like i'd hope.  on the other hand, Michelle LOVED this gift!  and i was very happy to see her face light up with every page she turned. 

** supplies // the stand from Michael's, paper pack + twine from CTMH (sorry i can't remember what it's called), random embellishments from various scrap stores, photos printed at Cost Co, MS score board.
