It's a Wedding Kind of Week.....


I love weddings. Mine was two and half years ago, and--ahem--I have yet to complete a scrapbook about it. I'm really delinquent in scrapbooking large life events.

Given this delinquency, I was pleased to find out that the topic for the Write. Click. Scrapbook gallery this month was weddings! You can see the whole gallery here.

For my layout, I focused on one element of the day, the fact that I gained a new family as well as a husband. I used lots of Crate Paper's Portrait line, and some Studio Calico veneer butterflies for good measure.

And a little closeup:

Up there in the corner is one of my favorite punches--the Martha Stewart starburst. It's an oldie, but a goodie. I think it just adds the perfect touch to any project, whether used as a circle or cut in half. (And no, I'm not getting paid for this. I'm just a huge starburst fan)

And now, down to some business:

GIVEAWAY WINNER!!!!!!!!

I have to pick another (let's hope it's the last!) winner for my blog giveaway--the Random.org # is 21, and the winner is Meredith!

I must confess I haven't purged for some time but every now and then I slip a few things my daughter and sons way for them to scrap with (they are 4, 6, 8, 9!!) They love it!
I love the haul of goodies that you have there!!

Also, I promised a prize pack to whoever guessed what my blog secret was--and the winner of that is Sarah Webb!

I am going to guess an inspirational series... Something on scrapping ;) Maybe something for Ella? Looking forward to what it might be!

So tell me--are YOU as bad as I am in scrapping events like weddings??

  4. Um yes, I still need to scrap my daughter's 1st birthday, and I've never scrapped my honeymoon. I am attending a retreat next weekend, and I need to scrap this big events: 1st birthday, 2nd birthday, last halloween, and I know that I have oodles of other stuff to, but those are the big events that come to mind right now :)

  5. I've been married 13 years and have never scrapped a wedding picture -lol! I love your layout. I just might go scan some of my wedding pictures and try it out!

  6. I've been married for almost two years. I've done a couple layouts for our honeymoon and wedding each. But other people's weddings? I love doing those. I think it's because there's a lot less pressure when it's not my own wedding. I don't care as much about making it perfect -- and there are definitely a lot fewer photos, too!

  8. Beautiful page - you looked so pretty! I did scrapbook a lot of my wedding photos but it was a while back, before kids, and it's pretty but it's not what I would do today. For that reason I suppose I am glad I went with pretty classic style.

  17. I too have neglected my wedding "album". Until a few months ago, when I just decided to start scrapping my favorite pictures from the wedding. I have about 8 pages now. Eventually those layouts will end up in a wedding album, kinda a hodge podge mix.
    Love your layout!

  18. ok - i'm convinced we are destined to be friends "in real life" -- i finally had time to catch up on blogs tonight and had a million tabs open with your blog being one of the tabs when i got your comment on my blog...small world!

    i am actually pretty good at documenting the "big events"....b/c i normally have pics of them...for me the tougher part is those everyday moments b/c i'm not as good as taking pics of these!

  19. Lovely layout! Yes, I am terrible at scrapping big events like this. I made a mini, but have not really scrapped any of our wedding photos in a 12x12 format.

  20. Ummmm, YES! I am bad at big stuff. Especially trips...I tend to do a couple of pages and then just stick all the rest of pictures into photo pages. Then feel a little bit like a failure of a scrapper! ;)

    I love that you mentioned and "oldy but goody" punch. I have a few I've owned for more than a decade and they still get used a lot. Love that! Although...I DON'T have the one you mentioned, but now I want it.

  21. This is terrific! I may have to get that punch if I can find it.

  22. I love this subtle layout Keshet! Am SUCH a Crate fan!! And YES I can totally relate to not scrapping the major events - I haven't done my wedding album yet either (and my eldest is 18 LOL!)
