My Wedding in Pictures & a few New LO's! : ]

Ok, so the Holidays have passed and I've gotten back into my scrappin' groove for now. I say for now because we're going to be moving to a NEW apartment in March, so that means I really only have until mid-February to scrap before I'll be busy packing things up and purging the house in order to make moving a little easier. Oh, and the 1st weekend in March I'll be up in Jacksonville @ my SIL's baby shower! I'm sooo excited for her & my lil' bro and totally looking forward to being an Aunt! : ]

After thinking it through I have decided to post a link to my Wedding Photo Album on my Facebook for those of you who would like to have a glimpse into Our Special Day. There were so many special moments captured by our photographer that I'm almost dreading starting work on our wedding album, lol! The sheer thought of tackling it is overwhelming so I'll most likely wait until I'm all set up in my New Scrappy Space in our New Apartment in March.

So for now, here's what I've been keeping busy working on...

 These are the pics I told y'all about that were taken of me while I was being baptized last June. I wanted to keep this LO cohesive w/the double page LO I already scrapped of the before & after shots, so I went with a plain Kraft cardstock background. To compliment I found a scrap piece of pattern paper I've probably had for years that had the vintage feel of an old book and an aged pattern that went perfectly with all the elements I wanted to use from my Vintage Chic Cafe kits.

My next creation was inspired by a sketch I found in my latest SBEtc. Magazine. I took this pic on Christmas Day of the whole Family, well, minus my sister who couldn't make it down.
 This is also the first time I've tried my hand at paper pleating-the ruffle looking strip of pp below the floral pp block the photo is on. It didn't turn out as great as I would have liked, but the technique is fairly easy. I really like the detail the paper pleating adds to a page so I plan to try again in the future and see if I can improve my skills. ; ]

For those of you who don't know, the hubby & I decided to surprise his son this year and adopted a puppy for Christmas. This is me, Jarett & our furry new addition a few days before Christmas. She is the cutest little thing-a min-pin mix. We named her Fiona after a character in one of our favorite TV shows. She is quickly becoming our spoiled little princess! LOL!!

I had fun mixing Bo-Bunny's Tis the Season line w/Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses on this LO. I was even able to incorporate some lace glitter paper that's been in my stash for more than a year! I luv how it looks over top of the bold Bo-Bunny pp's! The little trees were all hand cut from a piece of pp before being adhered to the page. I also doodled around each of the layers of pp. For the title, I mixed thickers w/rub-on's and some older alpha's from mt stash.

This last LO is the one that took me the longest to put together...and not because there's so much on it either, LOL! But because I hand stitched the cut-out heart shaped lace paper doilie to the page! Needless to say I wont be doing much hand stitching in the future! It took me 2 weeks of working on it to finally complete this page, but I'm thrilled w/how it turned out so i guess it was worth the wait!

I mixed C'oredinations cardstock w/Jenni Bowlin & a couple different papers from the Basic Grey Capella line. I also used a printed transparancy from Making Menories and cut out the heart from an old doilie i've had in my stash since last February. The red bow was made from a silk ribbon I saved from a gift my hubby gave me the day after our wedding. <3

Thanks for stopping by!
