Done and Done!

I bought this book over five years ago with absolutely no idea what I was going to use it for, but I liked the design.

I am so happy to report that I found the perfect use for it – a wedding scrapbook! I actually began this scrapbook a long time ago. One of the best things about having a blog is that I can look back and see that on May 18, 2009 (wow, almost two full years ago) I wrote about starting the scrapbook and being so happy that I was half-way finished. Little did I know!

Now I am not huge into scrapbooking at all. I don’t do the fancy papers or use cool scissors to cut different designs. Give me a few decoration thingies from the dollar store, a marker, photos, and tape and I’m all set. Except do you know how long it takes to sort through hundreds of pictures and choose only a few? I had to scour friends’ facebook pages for random pictures I didn't have personal copies of and print off terrible quality photos, but such is life. AND, rejoice, it's done and I am so relieved! It's lovely :)

Pretty much every detail about our wedding is included in this book from the engagement to celebrating our first anniversary. I think it’ll be really nice to look back on it to remember our wedding day.

I know they're small pictures but here's a few sample pages so you can get an idea of what the book entails.
I'm pretty proud of the finished product!
I can finally cross this off my 36 in 365 list! Ahhh, feels good!


  1. Congratulations on finishing your wedding scrapbook!! From what I can see of it, it looks great! I can't wait to read it in person. Why don't you bring it home with you in June or at least bring it to the cottage in July. Everyone would love to see it.

  2. Oh... is there anyway you can airbrush the pictures with your dad's moustache? It looks so weird now to see it on him. lol

  3. Mom, so since it took me three years to finish this book, you should be expecting your parent album by 2014 :)

    I know, doesn't dad look like a big weirdo with that 'stache?

  4. Looks great! I cant wait to see it!

  5. No worries about the parent album. I have faith in you, daughter!!!
