Wedding Anniversary Hanging

Wow! 25 years of marriage!
 That's how long my friends Mandy and Peter have been married.  Not many people reach this anniversary these days, so its nice to see there are still people out there that are so happy together after all those years.

For their special day, I decided that I would make them a pocket wall hanging that I learned how to make at the Victoria Stamping Group I attend each month. The class was taught by a lady called Lynne from an idea that came from Jo over at Jozart, so check out her blog as there are more samples and ideas there for this  hanging and a great variety of other craft items too.
 There is also a tutorial that I set up over on my you tube channel . I'm still on a learning curve doing videos but it gives a really good idea of how to make the hangings.

For this special hanging, I decided to make little booklets to slot inside the pockets, showing pictures of their memorable wedding day. There are 4 little booklets, one of the bride, then one of the happy couple, one of he guests, then last but not least the party. I still had a few pictures left and wanted to use them, but sadly did not have enough room in the pockets, so I placed the extra pictures on the back to decorate it instead of leaving it plain. To make it into a hanger, I made a coat hanger out of heavy wire and tied ribbons onto it.

I would love to take this opportunity to say Happy Silver Wedding Anniversary to my special friends Peter & Mandy xxxxxxxx 
May you have many more wonderful years together!
