Magical Moments Scrapbook!

My hands were itching to create something different and creative. My hubby suggested a wedding scrap book as a gift for his cousin. Here is the result. Proud to say that everything is handmade :)

Front cover is decorated with stars and silver ribbon on to a Navy blue background.Is there any one who doesn't love stars and counting it!!!  There is a tag,with cartoon faces which represents sweet couple. The pages are placed in a frame type box, lid. 

(Note: For contest purpose, used our photos )

The photo is very special as it reminds me of our marriage days and brings freshness. Photos are embodied in a traditional look. One side is decorated with quilled sunflowers and leaves. Other side decorated with Marigold flowers, Plantain stems, Torana,  rangoli, ganapati as in Hindu marriages. All the decorations are hand cut from papers. The ganesha is cut from a plastic sheet.


Used patten papers to create the Eiffel tower and Statue of Liberty scenes. The cartoons are created using sketch pens. The girl lives in Paris and boy lives in America. Girl is a chemistry scholar and Boy is a physics scholar. So came up with this idea of showing their love to each other despite distance and fields :)
Left side bears the message: I’m a pint of lemon and he a pinch of salt. Together we journey on a neutral plane over a blue sky.
Right side bears the message: Hello, I’m a proton falling for an electron!  Together we shall cause an explosion, using nuclear fusion :-) 

These photos were taken at Yumthang valley full of Rhododenus flowers. One of the best trip we had.   Yay! it's sikkim , God's garden..
