My young hairdresser, Jess, is getting married in a week's tomorrow!. She is a fabulous hairdresser and I always walk away from Dextress Hair Face and Body at Murrumba Downs feeling refreshed, and sometimes with a completely new look in colour or style, given my level of confidence in their ability.
Although Jess and I had discussed her upcoming wedding, I did not ask too many questions which may fall into the 'surprise' category. However, I wanted to make something special for her so I phoned the salon owner, Becc and was able to glean that the dress will be nude/ivory and the touch of colour, aqua. That is all I needed to get my creative thoughts flowing. I used an image by 'Designs Galore' for the front cover
I enjoy 'starting from scratch' with an idea and a colour theme and look forward to the end result once I have sorted and found the 'perfect' fabrics/lace and embellishments I want to use. In this instance I opted for a small 7"x7" D ring album with 6.5" x 6.5" top loading photo pages to be inserted. This is obviously not going to be the main album, really a keepsake gift with the added advantage of being able to add small items from the wedding, and store in the lace pockets on the inside and back covers. I really enjoyed making this lovely album and was happy with the outcome. Fortunately, Jess really liked it too.
