40 years ago...

.... next week my parents got married.

Next weekend we are having a modest family get together in a restaurant near their home to celebrate their Ruby wedding anniversary.

Here are all the finished projects I have made for them as a gift.

This is the mini album I made for them. After a mad dash to WHSmith's to get some more double sided tape, I was able to finish this off quite quickly. It is a really simple design, but one I love, and I can see me making more of these in the future.

I used Bazzill cardstock, and the embossing on the kraft card is done with Cuttlebug embossing folders. The paper is a mixture of My Minds Eye, October afternoon and an unknown source. I used my Cricut to cut the label shapes. I used a wedding set of stamprs from Papertrey Ink, and finished off with a Prima flower on the front and some Papermania buttons on the inside pages.
All the photos are from their wedding day. I scanned in the originals and reprinted them at home.
I ended up going to see Tom's friend by myself today, as by the time the doctors had done their rounds yesterday it was too late to visit. I made a card, but then forgot to photograph it... The wee man is hopefully on his way home today.
Well its the start of 4 days at work for me, and the start of the 2 week October holidays for the kids. Not a lot of peace around here for a while then ....
