    As many of you know, I'm not having actual bridesmaids, but I'm having 8 honorary BMs. All an HBM does is get their heads superimposed on a silly picture. It was just a way to tell 8 of my friends I love them without the hassle of having BMs. Most of them can't attend the wedding anyway.

    Here are the albums I just finished making. I tried to pick the silliest pictures of us:

    Planning details:
    The plastic albums were 50 cents at AC Moore. They hold 24 pictures.

    I bought 1000 prints off ebay for snapfish for $13 to keep print costs low. I had to print over 200 pictures to fill 8 of these.

    Here is the thread about superimposing thier heads on pictures

    I also bought a quote stack at AC Moore about friends. There are some quotes throughout the books. Then I typed up my own captions & taked them to a few pictures.

    I can't wait to give these to 3 of my HBMs on Friday when they fly up. I still need to finish up one for a local friend so I can give them to the 2 locals friends. 2 girls will get there at the wedding & another will get hers when she drives to NC in May.

          I started back in 2005 after a wedding I was in. She gave us albums of silly pictures. It was my favorite BM gift. So I've been collection silly pictures as I think about it. I spent a lot of time scanning them in, because many are from before I had a digital camera.

          Once I started planning a DW & decided not to have BMs, I wanted to still make these.
