Golden Wedding Gift

We went to a lovely Golden Wedding lunch the other day - 50 years! Gulp!

The invitation specified no presents - our friends are hoping to move house soon, and I think the thought of more stuff was just too daunting. So I took my camera, and took loads of photos, then set to work on this.....

The chipboard book is by Bo Bunny, and I covered the pages in the glitziest golden papers I could find, and added quite a lot of bling - well, fifty years deserves a bit of sparkle......look, there's me, in the blue top at the bottom of  one of the pages....

I loved these photos of Jan with her daughter and granddaughter

I love doing these books as gifts, but find that you can't really use the latest scrapbook styles - there just isn't room. The other pages have a collage of all the friends and family that were there at the lunch - it's a lot to fit into one little book.
They loved it, I sent it by mail and they called me as soon as it arrived, Jan was quite tearful (I THINK they were tears of joy, at least, I hope so....) 


  1. What a wonderful idea for a gift. We attended a golden brunch on Sunday and I wished I would have thought of doing something like this!!! The children had planned a "get away" vacation for their parents and we donated to that. (A great idea also) Enjoy your trip and sunshine!

  2. A wonderful keepsake to treasure...hope you're enjoying your life on the ocean wave...ahoy me hearties...hugs kath xxx

  3. A super gift and keepsake all rolled into one.

    Hope you are enjoying life afloat and that you are taking things easy.
