Photo Oriented Anniversary Album !

So I had the chance of making this big 12X12 scrapbook for a couple who were completing their 10 years of togetherness. Oh well, what better way to celebrate than to flip through the pages of a beautiful scrapbook, looking at all the photos(old & new) and re-living the treasured moments :)

This 10 page album has lots of photos, and by lots I mean more than 100(hence photo-oriented :)) so I had to really push my brain to think of ways to add more photos while not adding more pages. Interactive elements saved my life and the book turned out to be awesome :)

Here is the cover


The fabric beneath the photo was upcycled from an old dress and I love the feel it gives to the cover. The photo was then stitched down on the fabric using some simple hand stitches on the corners.

Entering this for LESSology: Challenge#25 - For the love of fabric and Shahrul's Challenge to stitch at Yvonne's blog Do More With Less

Have a good week ahead my friends!
