wedding planning journal: crystal and paul

I recently had the privilege to put together this "wedding planning and memento" journal for a sweet lady in Ireland - Anita. She wanted the journal so she could document the wedding planning with her son and soon-to-be daughter-in-law. 
She wanted the journal fun, pink and pretty :) I've never put together a pink and girly journal - so it was fun to coordinate a bunch of different papers, envelopes, and embellished pages. I made a "confetti page" instead of a confetti window - I sewed the clear window material directly to a glitter cardstock page. LOVE it (will definitely be exploring this concept more with other projects ;)).
I used my Silhouette to cut out a few pages of "key places" in the couple's story - where they are each from and where they met.
I also used a doily, baker's twine, ribbon, tulle, diecuts and other things to embellish the pages.
I love how it turned out. I love how I made a new friend halfway across the world via our back and forth convos about the book :) Thanks so much, Anita! SO great to work with you on this book and am thankful to have "met" you :)
