Precious Memories ..... locked in a scrapbook

Yes... I made this scrapbook months back but just couldn't post it. This was a made on order scrapbook. The young girl wanted to gift something different to her fiancee ( they are  happily married by now :) where in she wanted to share with him all the moments they  had spent together till then .... right from the day they met .. So whats better than a scrapbook where one can not only take a ride through their past but also can mention their plans for future ..

The good thing was she knew what she wanted and was open to suggestions and ideas.

She was very fond of one of his childhood pics so we decided to use that on the cover page ... The scrapbook covered the guy's journey right from his childhood ( we purposely fabricated it along  so as to give space even to his parents and friends to write their feelings about him )

I made a little vintage looking cover page to give that nostalgic feel ...



Again a page dedicated to his friends and his passion.... photography .... Each page had lots and lots of hidden pockets and tags ....



That girl and her fiancee had met through an matrimonial site .... I used the photographs they had posted on that site ... Again lots of tags to write what she felt when she saw his profile for the first time ...


This page defines the period between the first meet and engagement :)




Some special moments ... some notes .... 



Again some tags ...



A page dedicated to one of the special moment in one's life ...... engagement 




Some casual moments spent together .....




Now... This is my favorite page ... I made a puzzle based on the moments in their life....  
The tags below are clues like first gift from her to him and so on..... All the answers are in the puzzle...
I asked her to solve the puzzle first and the tags behind that puzzle are gifts ..
...... if he is able to crack it in the same time frame 




I enjoyed making this album as that girl knew what she wanted but at the same time I had the liberty to place it the way I wanted... Thanks Girl :)

Happy Crafting,
Meghna
