Altered wedding photo album

Hello again! This is the wedding album I made to go with the card from yesterday.  The flower paper is Bo Bunny - Alissa and the spot paper is Doodlebug. The bracket is cut from black card using a Tim Holtz on the edge die and the words 'Our Wedding' are cut with the Cameo (dear joe font). To cover the join in the papers I used white seam binding and baker's twine. The little flower is punched with SU's Boho blossoms punch and a little Papermania button added to the centre.
I forgot to take a picture of the album before I started but it was similar to the one at the bottom of this post here .

I made a box for the album with 2 sheets of 12x12" white card using the Woodware groovy duo scoring board (it's brilliant for making boxes).

The title and scrolls were cut with the Cameo and the box is tied with Baker's twine. The flowers are punched with SU Boho blossoms punch and a tiny pearl added to the centre.

You wouldn't believe how quiet it is here today, the children are back to school (not too happy about it either) and Richard's back at's a little bit lonely!  Ah well, it'll not be for long :)
Yesterday while clearing the study I found some lovely stuff I'd forgotten about so I'm off to finish the study first and then have a wee play.

Hope you have a great day wherever you are, and thanks for visiting!

Oh what a special keepsake and the box just adds that special touch :) Love the floral papers and the Blk & White combo.
