Getting Close to Completion :)

Thanks for stopping in today!  I have a few more photos of my son's wedding scrapbook, and then I'll show you some of the beautiful cards I've been working on...then we'll get back to scrapbooking!  I sure hope you're loving both.  Oh, there's also the family/name frames...they're so cool!!!  And they can be done in any fit any decor...well, THAT was quite the tease, wasn't it...LOL

Anyway, back to the wedding scrapbook...

I kept the same colour scheme throughout because those were the colours our beautiful bride chose for her colour scheme.  I was fortunate enough to be able to incorporate a variety of patterns as well...keeping all the colours the same.

This shows some background stamping as well as a variety of patterened paper and punched flowers.
Here, I used the same ideas as before but with the varied paper patterns and different punches.

In this series of pages, I used a bit of ribbon and fabric.  The Mr. & Mrs. ribbon came from the couple's gift boxes.  This way, I get to keep so many parts of their big day!

A closer image of the page.
Here, you can see the ribbon used, as well as some "bling."

On this page, I stamped the background, added some bling and some punched flowers.  Sometimes, I find simple is better.
Of course, a closer look at the flowers and stamped background.

New Pages

I have some more pages to show you from my son & daughter-in-law's scrapbook.  So far, I'm hoping you like what you've seen.  I just love creating these pages...
If you'd like to learn how to create your own memories, I'm happy to show you how...just ask :)

I love the way this turned out...the four photos on the right are perfect together!
AND, I used the negative image from the swirl on the left-hand page to compliment
that side of the series of photos.  I love it!

Here is a closer view of the right-hand page.  The photographer was
a photo journalist and her photos are just stunning.

The "banners" say "Kids at Heart"
Which is exactly what this series of photographs reminds me of.
I absolutely adore these photographs and how fun they are.
So Sweet
Isn't this adorable???

More Goodies :)

Good morning!!!

This is the cover - it shows one of their engagement photos
I have a few more goodies to show you today.  I made a wedding album for myself with photos from my son's wedding.  I'm so happy with the way it turned out.  I'll share a few pages each day.  I like to put plenty of 3-dimensional embellishments when I can.  Notice on page two there are 3-dimensional daisies.  My daughter-in-law had beautiful daisies as accents, so I incorporated them into my album in several colours.  I hope you like pages so far...

This is page one - I have no particular order in my album

A closer view of page two

Second page - again, no particular order
