Congratulations Anna and Jack!

A month or so back some dear friends of mine secretly got married. Can you believe it? A total surprise, but "About Bloody Time" (Aussie slang)!! They told us by sending home some photos of their special day - very cheeky werent they!

I've been trying to think of a wedding gift to get them - what do you get for people with everything? I eventually came up with the idea of scrapping a photo from their wedding and framing it. It has been a bit hard for me to find frames that I like and I have some others on order but then I found this in Myer in the photo frams dept. It is a stainless frame that is like a shadow box with a glass front. I like the idea of the glass to protect from dust - but very hard to photograph! It was also terribly expensive ($60 eek but it was a wedding present and I'll look out for sales in the future). Its size is approx 12"x9". I also bought one that is approx 7"x7" and want to make a mothers day gift with it (Mothers day is in may in Australia!). I love the result. I want to make one for me too!
