I based the cover on the colour scheme we had for the saturday, which was burgandy and worked from there. This front shows the first of my mistakes (I am sure you will notice more) in that I cut too many holes down the side - but having practised I now know how to do the correct number only!!
The first page holds a handmade envelope which inside is a letter to my son reminding him of how proud we are of him and that he is capable of anything if he sets his mind to it.
These are the pictures of us ready for the Saturday morning - hence the phrase - suited and booted (and we were raring to go!!!!)
And here we are on the Sunday. I know so many people don't like peel offs but I think they work on this page
And here are my two boys (hence brother's love) but I must say it's a rarity to find them together with a smile on their faces. And I used my new thickers for this too and added the nestabilities for the frames - see I am beginning to get a little more adventurous.
anyway) doing their speeches on the night.
I even added a tag which slides out behind the picture of my hubby speaking with some personal words hidden on it (see - that's adventurous too!!)
And here is my favourite page - the one showing the present I got off my hubby - but that's hidden behind the flap (getting daring now)
The second page is of the dancing on the evening with Alex up in a chair - hence the title.
And this last page is of Alex and his friends because without them the weekend wouldn't have been the same to him.
Thank you for looking at my first attempt and I hope you like it.
