The gift box with the book nestled inside.
We have a little folded 6 x 6 scrapbook that we like to make for special occasions. My granddaughter, Molly, wanted to make a special one for her parents' 19th wedding anniversary. She started it in August and yesterday, Saturday, she came over to finish it. The pictures do not do it justice. She wanted it all in black and white with a little pale yellow for contrast. We took the pictures with my camera, from my scrapbook from 1990, and sent them to the drugstore on line, asked them to make them black and white, and two hours later they were ready to pick up! What a day and age in which we live!!
The 'innards' are pretty full, so we have a fairly stuffed little book!!
The ribbon is untied and we are ready to explore the book.
This book has lots of little 'nooks and crannies' which makes it fun!
Here we have the backsides of the two flaps on the top
and the first full page.
At this point each page opens to reveal several more pages.
Yes, the young man with the wild wooly hair is my son, Jonathan...
and his best friend, as well as my three nephews.
Molly did the words, scriptures, and poems on the computer.
These two little doors open for more pics inside.
Here's the book somewhat unfolded, but it goes back together again
a easily as can be.
Here are two more little doors to open!
She had places to stick pictures in--the children came
much later. I'm not sure why she wanted their pics in the wedding album!
Here is the same view with the pictures pulled out of their little pocket.
This shows a full page with the little 'doors' opened.
If you are still here, thanks for letting me share Molly's creativity with you. I thought it was lovely for a little 14 years old to think up. When she presented the ideas to me, I wasn't sure how the black and white pictures would look, but it turned out well. Her Daddy will be overwhelmed with this book. It doesn't take much to reduce him to tears! I wish I could be a little mouse in the corner when she gives it to them!
