Wedding mini album for a colleague

Once same sex marriages became legal in Florida, I knew it wasn't long before my friend married his true love.  They were married last week and I created this little mini album for them.

All products used CTMH except the Vellum Quotes and liquid glue.
Most of the products I used are already retired and no longer available, but I wanted these products and the blue color was specifically requested.

For the cover, I used my Silhouette to cut out the names attached to the blue oval. I typed the text and attached it to the oval path.  I learned how to do this by watching videos by CleverSomeday on YouTube. Her videos can be found here.  I also created an offset to place behind the names.  The date was cut on the same mat with the other items.
The first page has a Vellum quote that can be left as is or placed over a photo. I left it for the couple to decide.  Once they do, I'll help them finish the page.

The next two pages are the left and right side inside the album.  They have places for a photo on each page.

The last page has a Vellum quote with a torn edge that can be placed on top of another photo.
The front and back cover are cut from black chipboard. I don't remember where that came from.  It is lightweight chipboard.  I punced holes that line up with the 6" page protectors and tied it all together with black Tulle.  I wanted a binding system that can be expanded for more pages if desired.
