First ever mini book

Two first's here: First time I have made a complete mini book from scratch, and first time I have photographed rather than scanned LO's so please bear with me. This book has been nearly 18 months in the making as that is how long Laura and Wayne have been building their first house together and how long it has taken to gather the photos together.

Wayne doesnt really 'do' photography and hates having his photo's taken so I had to be a bit discreet about taking these and also try not to annoy him turning up on site YET AGAIN with my camera. I know that in 15 years time they are going to thank me for it and wish that more photos had been taken but there you go.
Having taken the photos Laura wanted a 'coffee table' book to show all her visitors about how her new home came about. This is the result, based on the mini book Shimelle demo's on the Fiskars site. Lots of Crate paper Katie and most of the other embellies made from scratch myself as it was difficult to find appropriate 'bellies.

I also used Stamps Away stamps (from Clevercuts) to make the journalling labels which Laura can fill in herself.
