Family Album

This is another wedding gift. It's a bit of a different style ... I used the Lisa Bearnson Family album kit.
I love the box it comes in. A little bit harder to access, but so totally worth it!
The book is a little too fat for the box, though. You think they would have thought of that when they made them to go together ...

There are a lot of hidden journaling pockets and slides. On every page there is the artwork and journaling on the left and then a lightly decorated page on the right to place a photo (or a few).

I love the slide with the love rubon above!!! I wanted it!

I hope they like yellow :)
It's so hard when creating something for someone else to not think about keeping it and what you would do if it were for you ... it's an internal struggle.
You want it to look good for that other person, but you don't feel the need to have it be perfect because it won't be yours. However, you don't want to make mistakes - the cuts need to be the clean, the measurements precise, etc because it's a gift ... you may forgive some poor execution, torn paper, skewed angle, etc on your own stuff, but you don't want to give it away ... weird, but so true.

I hope you like it!

I know just what you mean. I am not great at scrapping for others, for all the reasons you have so cleverly put into words. you have done a fantastic job though. Sure they will be blown away by your effort & thoughtfulness ;-)
