My son and daughter in law had a destination wedding in Cabo Dec 5, 2008 and I've scrapped so many of those pictures already. But her parents also wanted them to have a church wedding, so their "1st" wedding was in their church on Nov 1st. There weren't a lot of pictures there as the guy who was taking pictures something happened to his camera, but I did manage to get these pictures from my seat.
So wanted to add these layouts to their album. "finally"

In the scrapbooking group I'm in SnC "Scrappin n Chattin" we are having a photo a day challenge for the month of May and the prompt for todays picture was a sunset or sunrise. So I got up at the ungodly hour of 5:30 am and was out walking in the yard to take this sunrise picture. I loved it so much I wanted to make a layout of it. I used the May challenge sketch from www.thesamplerkitclub.com. It was the perfect sketch for this because I just wanted to highlight the picture and not take away from it with the background paper or embellishments. So found this piece of solid color paper, put a small mat around the pic in another solid for and then got out my cricut and just used white paper to cut the swirls from the "Lovely Floral" cartridge

This sketch worked out just great for some of the fun photos I got this week of Bruce (my brother) we were both joking around with our i-phones and started taking pictures of each other at the same time.
If nothing else we have fun together, never a dull moment.
These are just a few of the pictures I took at Mud Island. I used the May sketch at Authentique bloodspot and used the Authentique Journey collection. I'm really loving their papers. I thought the background paper went well with the pictures, with the twists and different colors, just like the twists and depths that are cut into the walks at Mud Island.
