Wedding Album


I love doing these albums, you can't help but smile and feel full of love while creating these pages. I have created a few of these now - they are 6x6 albums that the happy couple can add photo's to the pages. A-Z albums are such a treasure.

Itsy Bitsy Spider

Awhile back, I hosted a swap - it was to be a 2 page 9x9 layout - you were to put a story that you love to read with your kids... This was one of my all-time favorite swaps. i did 2 different stories so that i could have two completed books for my girls.

Celebrate your love of reading and create a memory book... imagine, a storyteller (me) making a book about storytelling!! Love it! Places for your pictures or journalling - what a great gift to a new family as well.
