wedding layouts

I spent yesterday afternoon and evening, catching up on layouts from my stepdaughters wedding from just shy of 2 years ago.    We are going to Orlando in April so I wanted to have more of her album complete so I can take it with me to show her.    Their wedding was at the Isleworth Country Club in Windemere, FL  (area made famous as the home of Tiger Wood)

The second layout with the pictures of her walking down the aisle with her Dad and her brother is the one that I entered this week in the TPV sewing challenge.

The wedding was outside at sunset and was absolutely the most elegant wedding I have ever attended.

Barbara spent months and months and months planning it and her attention to detail really paid off.

So here are the layouts I worked on yesterday.

Gray rainy day only good for scrapping

Another cold and gray day out, so all I could think of to do was one more layout.

This came to me this morning.   I didn't think I would come up with another layout for Scrappin-n-Chattin in February, but then I thought of the new comedy on ABC that started a couple of weeks ago, called Mr. Sunshine and describes Kai so well, thus the layout I made.   This picture was taken when he was about 18 months old, I cropped him out of a group picture for the layout.  I actually finished all 10 layouts now for this month, never thinking I would get that many completed, but I did with even a few days to spare.

I even used old and new, the 2 pieces of paper came out of the new paper pack I bought on Monday, plus for the sun I used the latest cricut cartridge that I had bought most recently.   The old is the gold ribbon, I had saved a long piece of it that was on a Christmas gift several years ago, was just to pretty to throw out, so now I've used some of it.

my lasting memories challenge layout

I do have a blog

With so many people in the scrapbooking world having a blog, I was beginning to think that I was the only person that didn't. But then I remembered years ago everyone in my family started one and I found mine. Surprise Surprise !!! So hopefully this will be something I will keep up and learn more about and not bore everyone to death with.
So now I can get my blinky from Lasting Memories from their challenge that I just entered and every other fun thing that all you bloggers do. but then I have to find out how to do all of that too. Another new process for me. But I'm going to give it a try. and see what I can accomplish here.
Plus I'll be sharing my layouts and such here just like all you other ladies do so well.

To get this started, I'm offering blog candy to any new followers that join this week. I'll make a selection of cricut die-cuts to whoever joins and makes a new comment to this post after reading some of my old comments from years ago and mentions one of them. I'll use random number generator to pick a comment and announce the winner Sunday February 20th.

Thanks for following.
