All the patterned papers came from the DCWV Amber Autumn matstack, 4.5x6.5, so not much waste of paper. I used textured cardstock for all the solid color pages. Here's a few more pages.
My husband is on the left and that's me on the right. Notice all the beautiful flowers. The landscaping was so beautiful throughout the whole village and so well maintained. I used butterfly and dragonfly mini-punches to decorate the edges.
I did some journaling (typed on my computer) and created a pull-out card from behind the picture. Had a few of these throughout the album.
The flower shapes were cut using my Cricut and the Accent Essentials cartridge. I probably only had 4 cartridges then--the ones that came with my original bundle! The back cover is green to match the front cover, and left un-embellished.
