A scrapbook from Prince Charles and Princess Diana's 1981 wedding, went up for sale last week. It is is expected to cause a bidding frenzy among royal family enthusiasts.

According to experts, the scrapbook is expected to fetch as much as $8,000 in an online auction.

The scrapbook was created by Princess of Wales' wedding dress designer, Elizabeth Emanuel, who fashioned the book out of lace and fabrics from Princess Diana's wedding gown and her bridesmaid's dresses.

The 5-page scrapbook incorporates the specially commissioned Nottingham lace used on the bodice of Princess Diana's bridal gown on the cover, and fragments of bridal tulle, ivory faille bow, pearl beads, lace used on the hem and two swatches of silk all taken from the late Princess of Wales' bridal gown fabric.

The memento also features an original watercolor sketch of the gown, press clippings from the wedding and an autograph from Emanuel herself.
