Christmas presents

I kinda feel like I failed this year at Christmas gifts. I mean, I know that's not what Christmas is all about, seriously. But usually I at least give non-lame gifts. I even got pretty sweet gifts. The ones of note were my new monitor and a label-maker. Yep, I'm a dork like that. I love it and I use it all the time.

But this post is to show you my most non-lame gift that I actually gave this year. It was for the parents, mine and his.

I first made these flippy books back in June after a wedding I shot and I totally fell in love with them. I had resolved at that point to make my own for gifts at Christmas.

This is the front on the left, my very favorite picture of the day :) and the back is on the right. It's a close up of my bouquet. Which I thought was the most exquisite bouquet I've ever seen. And it just so happened to be my own! The covers are both in metallic so they are slightly reflective and very eye-catching.

Then first is the inside when you open it up. It was hard to pick for this book, honestly because I felt like I had so many good ones! But I was really happy with the ones I chose in the end :) From left to right, there is a picture with the 5 guys, then the picture of my hand was taken when I was writing a card to Steve. I wanted to have a close up of my ring and I really liked the character in this one. Then the next picture was taken at Mendon Ponds after the wedding and the last is me with the 5 of my girls. I just looooove that picture :)

This now is the back side of the book. I decided to do only one picture per page here so that I could fit in a few more. Plus, the vertical pictures don't pan out over two spaces very well ;) Left to right there is my favorite close-up of me that day. Then my Dad and I walking across the bridge, the pastor blessing our rings, our parents praying over us, the recessional and then my favorite clos-up of Steve :)

Here's a view of just the back. It's size is 2.5x3.5 inches and is just so adorable I could eat it. Ok, so maybe not, but ya, it's really just that cute :)

So, what was your favorite Christmas gift to give and get this year?
