47 Amazing Years

My brother-in-law and his wife came to Vegas in February to celebrate their 47 wedding anniversary, I took some pictures for them and finally find some time to make this album for them

47 amazing years






I am linking this project to the challenge over at



more details of the mini album....


I printed some old (+one new) photos of my brother-in-law Dan's childhood in small sizes and used it at photo strip for the front of the album


the pages inside, we took them to red rock canyon, Dan was actually camera shy and looked away when I took their picture.


we also took them to Palms for lobster and steak, Dan likes steak and Marilyn loves lobster


Randy with Marilyn at the Bellagio fountain with Paris at the background, also the Botanical Garden at Bellagio


Dan also wanted to go to a basket ball game at UNLV, and we got him front seat tickets.


back of the album



before I go, here's a sneak peek for LESSology Challenge, check back soon
