Anniversary Bitty Book

I've made many of these retired SU Books. This one is extra special: 50 years of Marriage is quite a milestone for any wedding couple. Their invitation in the shade of Old Olive set the foundation for this project. Shown here is the gift wrapped with an organdy ribbon.

Shown is the cover of the project with the accompanying card:

A close-up of the album: Silver charms on the spine of the album. The names are computer generated. Added touches of Sizzix die cut swirls around the hearts along with embossed texture background (Cuttlebug Tapestry Embossing Folder) used. The Scallop Oval Punch and Large oval used, too.

Here's the album cover: Again with textured background and computer generated message. Note this chipboard album was pre-painted with white prior to any decorating.

Inside album cover: The photo is from the invitation sent. Aren't they just the handsome couple? The photo was cut down to fit into the album pages.......there are more pages for other photos.

The inside cover message is computer generated: and truly their 50 years is a magical adventure............he's also a practicing Magician!

The accompanying gift card:
