A Posh Wedding Album

I'm really sorry about this posting....maybe because there are too many details and they don't want to line up and there are soooo many spaces inbetween.............sorry about that - I keep trying to fix it but no success................
Get ready.............sit down with a cup of beverage........because there are 35 photos of this album.......with lots to see, too. So, let's get to it: the "Happily Ever After Mini Album" instructions can be purchased from Laura Denison (of following the Paper Trail) - check out her Ustream tutorials and her AMAZING projects. Last year, another wedding album using Laura's instructions for my friend was posted here. A couple changes to the cover (see photos below) was made to this one. The album is pictured here with the wedding card that was posted yesterday. they look really good together............ finished album size is 7" x 7-1/2" x 2".

The album front: Love the sheer roses: also made by Teresa Collins. They match perfectly to the paper. And the Mr. & Mrs. Tag is oh so subtle
