Growing in Unity, DAY FOUR...

and HIP HOP THURSDAY! WOO HOO!  What could be better?  To join in the Hip Hop fun, go the the UNITY BLOG to start the DT hop (ALWAYS AMAZING WORK) and to see all of the specials and new stamps for the day.  Then join us for a day of fun on the SCS forum HERE .  I will announce the winner of my Unity Single on that forum later in the evening.  (Which will be the Owl Journal Box, since it was almost a unanimous choice)

So here is the mini album in a DVD tin that I made for my friends birthday.  She called me a few weeks ago to say she was getting married (eloping) in April and couldn't believe all there was to do. She was glad she wasn't planning a HUGE wedding cause she couldn't handle it.  So I thought I would make her a cute little planner that would also be a great way to remember the memories after the wedding.  I hope she likes it.  I picked black, white and red and had some fun with it, she has a quirky fun personality.  This is her second wedding, so it's not the traditional theme and she was thinking of putting some RED streaks in her hair with a black or red dress.  Ok, with all that said, HERE IT IS.  (lots of pics)  Other than some basic white cardstock and DVWC sparkly red paper, all other paper is KI memories Pop Culture. 

The first pic (above) is the album in it's tin.  I used Unity's Love is Toxic and a CTMH Chipboard heart.

Here is the album cover.  I used the frame from the November KOTM and Bliss from the December KOTM.  The red font is CTMH and the White is a Quickutz font.

Left page: is for a picture of the Bride and Groom.  The smaller frame is from the December KOTM and the larger frame is from the August KOTM.  The white kiss stamps is in the November KOTM.  Right page: is for the happy couple to tell the story of how they met or whatever they want to remember about their courtship.  I used the stamp from the November KOTM that says "Home is where your Story begins" and only inked it up so that is would say Our story instead. The I {heart} you is in the August KOTM.
Left page:  The sentiment is from Hey Chick! and thought it would be GREAT with a photo of the wedding dress.  Right Page: LAUGH is from the November KOTM. I set this up as a to do list, but wanted to remind her to have FUN with it, so that's why the word LAUGH.

Left Page: I set up for photos of the rings. Right Page: The sentiment is from the August KOTM (love this kit by Jessica Rose BTW!)
This is the back of the album.  Just a little reminder is from the December KOTM.  The "sweet" heart is from the August KOTM and the XO is from Love is Toxic.

View of the inside
View of the backside.  I just added 4 pieces of binder paper for my friend to make any kind of notes on that she needs to.  The black words are run ons, but the red words are Unity stamps.  Indulge and daydream both from the August KOTM.

That's all for today, see you tomorrow for one more project!  Of course it has to involve pictures of my sweet little girls.
