Going back in time again this Friday

Hi back again with a blast from the past.  This was a gift I made for my parents Ruby Wedding Anniversary back in 2007.  It was a blank purse and the papers were by Rusty pickle. 
If nothing else I can see that my photography skills have improved in the last 6 years.  Not a great couple of pictures but as I don't have the project I can't retake them.  Still you will get the general idea. 

I love creating mini books for special occasions.  It has been too long since I made one...confession time....I have a cupboard in my craft room full of mini book blanks....just waiting to be altered, all shapes, sizes and mediums and even a couple of projects that have been started.  I need to set aside the time to play!
The idea behind this book was to have one side with their wedding photographs and the other with them bang up to date as they are now.

That's all for me today, if you want to know what crafting I got up to on Monday then you can see my post tomorrow over at It's a Creative World.  If you are happy to wait I will share it next week with you.  Have a super weekend and enjoy the sunshine. 

Happy crafting.  x

Hi Erika, this is such a lovely idea for an anniversary,Ruby, I can't think how many years that is, but it's a lot, so lots to put into it. Great keepsake,Kate x

Erika what a fab idea for those big anniversaries. I think we all have a cupboard like that, or in my case drawers I see things that I think I can use that in a basket and buy a few, then don't get round to using them for ages. Mainly it's baby towels or bibs etc, so at least they don't go out of date. My other big thing is ribbon.
