Will you marry me?

So I'm going to give you the happy ending first! The answer to Will you marry me? is Yes!

For the past few weeks I have been working on a client album to scrapbook their relationship story leading up to a romantic proposal for marriage.    The scrapbook album was an integral part of the 'Will you marry me' with the ring tied directly to the page.

Here is the proposal page without the ring, this page slips into the page protector:

Here is the the finished proposal page with the ring tied from one of the cherry blossoms that is attached on the outside of the page protector ( this is not the actual ring, the real one was tied there and then the toy ring was put back after the proposal).

This was a wonderful project to work on as my client was so trusting in my creative process, in the end he was over the moon with the results.  The album started out with photos of their childhood, how they met in university, trips they took together, good times with friends etc. all leading up to the important (surprise) marriage proposal.

The completed album ended up being 25 pages and here are a few peeks.  I blurred out the photos and journaling but I think you can still get the gist and design of the pages.  I apologize for the lighting, this project was time sensitive and there was only one window of opportunity to take photos of the pages before packaging the album for it's final destination to Montreal.

This was the left side of the double proposal page, I didn't want to put any photos on the left side to distract away from the right side page (because if has the ring!).  This font called LD batter-love from the Silhouette store is amazing, I love that it welds so beautifully together, I used the font throughout the album.

A page waiting for their engagement photo.

This was a favourite photo of them together, so I duplicated the image using them on photo strips.

Used Basic Grey's South Pacific collection here:

Here is a simple design to fits lots of photos, the grid cut file was designed by Ashley Horton, love it!

The hot air balloon cut file is from the Silhouette store and was so fun to make. The clouds are dry embossed for some subtle texture.

Some My Minds Eye, Authentique and Maggie Holmes Crate Paper goodies on this page, I was going for a really soft and feminine look, his journaling on this page was really endearing.

Thanks for dropping by, hope you have a wonderful crafty day! xx
