The Honeymoon, challenge 8

The best part of the wedding??? The Honeymoon!
Create a mini album for a honeymoon or vacation that you’ve taken or are getting ready to take.  Please click here to see some other great work.
I just took two quick trips to Wilmington, NC to visit my dearest friend who was working there for six weeks.  They were two amazing long weekends filled with extraordinary experiences.
My mini album is 7” x 7” and bound with my Zutter Bind-it-all, one of my favorite new tools.  The pages are made with recycled brown craft packing paper from one of my Crop Chocolate orders that I cut to size and sewed together.  This was inspired by a fellow Crop Chocolatier, Michele, who is on the Design Team.  Check it out over at The Crop.  The ribbons in the binding were inspired by yet another extremely talented CCer, D2.  You should definately see what she is up to by clicking here.
