WOYWW

It's Wednesday again and an excuse to spend hours of blog hopping....actually, I haven't got hours today as I'm manning the shop, so I'll have to do my hopping tonight. After yesterday's mammoth post there is nothing inky or painty on any of my desks and as my desk for the day is the shop counter....this is what I have been drooling over. My daughter Sarah got married in March and her very special wedding album arrived and I just can't put it down. Even though it rained it was such a beautiful day and of course Sarah looked amazing. The book is very different from a traditional album, it really is like a book with all the photos printed directly on the pages but what is amazing is that every page lays completely flat so it a photograph spreads over two pages, there isn't a lumpy bit in the middle.
Here's a few of my favourite pictures.



If you would like to join in the blog hopping fun, click here to jump over to Julia's blog and all will be explained.

I'll be back later to hop and comment.

Have a fun day, Lin

What a lovely idea - so different. The photos are as gorgeous now as in March when we were lucky enough to see lots!! A lovely reminder of a brilliant day for you all.

Ooh, isn't that lovely? What a great idea. My son gets married next year, so will mention this to him, Lin. Thanks for sharing! She looks absolutely gorgeous, btw.

Thanks for sharing these gorgeous photos Lin. My daughter is getting married next May and she's chosen this type of reportage photography too. Much nicer and more natural than the stiff, posed photos in our Wedding album which I don't even like looking at any more.
