Been dying to share this!

 In August this year my cousin Jennifer and her boyfriend Tim visited Ireland for a holiday.  On their first night Tim suprised Jen by taking her to a local castle / hotel and proposed marriage to her.  As we only live 5 mins drive from the hotel my husband and I went down for a drink with them later that night and I took my camera to take a few shots of them to remember the night.  A few days later we took off and did a little photo shoot with them and I compiled the shots in this book for them.  The box was just an afterthought to ensure the book is kept safe and that the book arrived to Boston safely.

I used 2 collections of My Minds Eye to make the book and loved the papers so much that I don't want to use up the last of the papers LOL!

I was just about to package the book and noticed that I forgot to dress the book rings - so I quickly dressed them with ribbons to pretty them up.  Jen & Tim loved the book and he was so cute, he was at home when it arrived and Jen asked him to open it up and describe it to her, and he asked her to wait to open it together when she got home - Ahh!

Right we are snowed in - it's -5 right now and day 4 of snow and OMG I am so over the snow!  Enjoy and stay warm!!!
