Layout of the Week

My first wedding layout, A Perfect Day, was chosen as Layout of the Week! Thank you to Swirlydoos.


Roger wanted to ride the chopper down the aisle. I thought it was a great idea (I really think he thought I would disagree with it!). But, hey, it's our wedding so we can do what we want, right? So, we hopped on the chopper and rode it around the neighborhood on our way to the backyard where the ceremony would take place. Everyone loved it. I just had to ride side-saddle and make sure to keep my dress away from the pipes.
I used a PageMaps sketch for inspiration on this lo. All the papers are from the Inspiration kit. I added some flowers that were GM'd to match the papers. tfl!

The dress

What a whirlwind it was getting ready for our wedding. We decided to get married during our housewarming/engagement party. It would be a surprise for all of our guests. We spent fourteen hours in Springfield ordering and buying everything for the wedding that would happen in less than eleven days. We made over twenty-four stops on our whirlwind tour of Springfield. We did everything from ordering the cake to picking out my dress. Yes, we were a little unorthodox. The groom was there to help decide on the dress. It did need altering and we were told that with only ten days until the wedding it was too late to have alterations done. But, we were able to persuade the Russian seamstress to take the dress to her daughter for the alterations. She loved our surprise wedding plans and wanted to help make it happen.
Another lo using the latest kit from Swirlydoos.
This is the resist paper that was included in the kit. I did use the Prima brick mask to emboss in black with TH embossing powder. All inks were TH distress inks. tfl!

The rings

Here is another one wedding lo using the Inspiration kit. My dd took this picture of the rings and bouquet. I forgot the bouquet during the ceremony so I ran back in to get it for the pictures at least!
All the flowers were Petaloo or Prima whites that were GM'd to match the flowers in the forgotten bouquet. Again, the clocks were a perfect embelly just to represent the fourteen long years it took us to get to this point in our lives. Although I forgot the bouquet, the day was unforgettable. So, the page is titled, "Unforgettable."

Living on a prayer

Another wedding lo using a past kit from Swirlydoos.  This one is pretty simple to showcase the photo. My dh really likes this picture and wanted it to be big so this is what I came up with at his request.
The Basic Grey cb letters were coated in TH Rock Candy and a 7G rub on was added to the photo. This picture of us praying right before the ceremony was caught by my dd. tfl!

With this ring...

And, here's day 3 from my new scraproom.
I used a PageMaps sketch from August as my inspiration.


Hey, I scrapped three days in a row. Here's my entry for the Swirlydoos butterfly challenge. I used Camilla's Anatomy of a Layout from December of 2011 as my guide. All the papers are from the latest kit, Inspiration.

A Perfect Day

I am sooo happy! Not only did we move into our new home on the lake and get married in our own backyard to the surprise of our family and friends; I am actually scrapping again! This is my entry for the Swirlydoos  sketch challenge. I used some photos from our wedding that my dd took for us.
We invited about 60 family and friends to our home for a housewarming/engagement party. We BBQ'd during the day and played horseshoes, washers, and hillybilly golf. The pool and hot tub were open and, of course, some people enjoyed swimming in the lake. Once the DJ arrived, we announced that the engagement was off because we were getting married in one hour! We made our grand entrance on Roger's chopper then enjoyed a catered dinner and music. It was a great night!
