A Wedding Gift

It just so happened that I came across some hilarious (slightly embarrassing) photos of my cousin just in time to make a gift for his new wife-to-be this Saturday. I will not post them here but let's just say it was at the Burning Man festival in Neveda and people wear some crazy stuff.





I made a quilted mini book/ frame. One picture can slide in the side of the frame and others are held in the pocket. I thought this would be pretty to take to the office or meet friends and show off a few wedding photos.



My Mom is taking it to the wedding in CT. this weekend. I hope she likes it and I hope the family has a good time looking at the photos. At my wedding a couple people had made me albums with pictures from childhood, highschool, and college, and we had a great time looking through them. Also, there are always people at the wedding that didn't know you when you were younger and it's fun to see those other sides of folks.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
