Bridal Shower

Ching says, KAYA!

Hello Ladies,

This is my first time to make a mini album. I decided to choose my Bridal Shower story for the Mini Album Challenge given by Marian. I enjoyed every moment in the preparation and completion of this project.

1 - Front Cover: Title
"Bridal Shower"

2 - It was Fall when I had my Bridal Shower,
but it was ,like an endless Summer. The day
was perfect for me to enjoy the gifts from my
many friends.

3 - I know my upcoming marriage will change
many things, but not my love for lingerie

4 - Nothing will match the thrill of wildly open,
beautiful wrapped packages to see what lies
with in!

5 - Life is so much better when you know your
friends are not living on the financial edge
and can afford to give you a gift from Victoria
Secrets, Estee Lauder, Celine Dion, etc...


6 - Now, with my soon to be groom, I hope
to spend my days and nights wearing the
wonderful gifts my relativea and friends
gave to me.


7 - Spread out the front 6 pages of the album...


8 - and the back 4 pages of the album

About Me:
Ching, a stay at home mom to a 15 years old son and married to a wonderful man. We live on the Southeast coast of USA. I started scrapbooking in 2004, but like most, I have more supplies than pages, done. I eagerly began scrapping again when I joined the PinoyScrapbookers group in January, 2008 and quickly did some albums of layouts for my family. I love to make double layouts with 2 to 4 photos each.
