My DD album (image heavy)

Post by Guest on Tue 4 Aug 2009 - 17:42

Finally finished, I started this album for Becky as a birthday present, I've just covered the last year as this last year she really bloomed I think, beforehand she was in a serious relationship almost 5 years and years before that with someone, they did go out anf have friends but I think Becky found herself (if you know what I mean) made new friends too.
There are just too many pages to picture so I chose a few, the ones you can't see are photos of all of the family on a plain photo collage. A page where she she met Lemar which you've seen, more friends pages and I left the back page for a photo of her and her boyfriend as they'll have a holiday snap to include there.

I forgot to say, the papers are mainly Dovecraft Wild Blossom

Front cover


First pages


Beckys favourites, the flap opens up for more.


Flatmates


She'll kill me for this photo, she took it to show me her new sofas.


Flatmates again


Friends


Party Girls. Stamped with unity stamp and diamontes which don't show up.


More


I made a mini wallet/concertina for each page with photos front & back of Becky, I used to always take photos of her and brothers if they were going on a night out so she carried it on to show me and any new dress she's bought or out with friends.



Unfolded


Unfolded 2 Also a vellum envelope with a lovely verse i found and a slushy letter from me.

This is just a super super thing, and she will absolutely love it. Such a great idea to cover a year like that - i loved the sofa shot and the favourites idea especially, and the pull out outfits.... This is something she can not only treasure but can look back on in years to come.

youve done a really great job of it.

Thankyou I enjoyed doing this for her. Becky came earlier and she loved it all, and she did say she would treasure it, we added some photos of her boyfriend as she brought some holiday photos round.. my girl has fallen in love , it's still early days at 4 months but he is lovely.
