My family and I headed to California in September for my cousin's wedding. We had a GREAT time and it was great seeing everyone and being able to sightsee in Gilroy and San Francisco! Hopefully you will be able to see the layouts from those fun days here soon!
Here is a picture of my family, Grandma and Burt with the bride and groom.
Here is a picture of Melinda with her family.
But my focus of this blog will be on the cute wedding gift that I made for the bride and groom from my whole family! Which brings me to my title!
Weddings over...now what?? Just because you are now married doesn't mean that the dating is over!! We helped Melinda and Ruben out by giving them a date book to some popular resturants!!
I was able to get this idea for a mini album from Anna Jarnagin who shared directions with CTMH consultants to create a Flip Flap photobook. Thanks Anna!!
Throughout the album I was able to include a poem, pictures and gift cards. Note with the gift cards I was able to use the slogan from the resturant! I loved how the picture worked with the slogan!! I didn't even plan that!! Enjoy!
In the pictures above and the two pictures below I was able to use the hot pink ribbons from the table decorations! It helped add some color to these pages!! The reception hall was so beautiful with the black, white and HOT pink!!
We decided not to use a gift card for the above as there might be a favorite resturant or place that Melinda and Ruben may go to...Or they may want to go back to the place where it all started and since we didn't know where it was and not familiar with the San Jose area we decided to gift them money so I made a mini paper gift card pocket to the money in.
I was also able to make a cute little matching gift bag for the date book. It was easy to make. One sheet of cardstock cut and score to make this cute little bag!!
The gift was a popular gift and the bride and groom were happy to have pictures to show off while waiting for the photographer to get their pictures to them!! Here they are looking at their gift!!
