Beautiful Wedding

Wow I can't believe it's Sept 26th already, it's been a crazy month what with weddings, company and a short little 2 day girls weekend. . The wedding was beautiful, ceremony on the beach at sunset, walking down the beach with her Dad, just brought tears to my eyes, she was so beautiful. That little girl I'd known since she was five had grown into this beautiful bride that looked so happy as she stood facing her husband. I looked at my husband as he watched them exchange their vows, blinking to hold back the tears, he was one very proud Dad! Here are a couple of photos.
Now I have my work cut out for me as I try to get all of these photos scrapped to give them their wedding album, hopefully by Christmas, lol.

Countdown

Only  11 more days until our daughters wedding! Since they live on the mainland and we are here on Vancouver Island we are not to involved in all of the planning and organizing, that's mostly up to Noelle & her fiancee and her Mom. It's going to be a small wedding with the ceremony on the beach and reception at a local club. 

My dh and I went shopping for a new suit for him this past weekend, I must say he looked pretty sharp when he tried it on. I managed to find a nice out fit yesterday at only the second store I went into, so I'm very happy about that and it should look nice with with my dh's new suit. My dh even managed to get his speech all written out for when he makes his toast to the couple. I think he's getting nervous, I'm pretty sure he'll have a few tears in his eyes when he gives her away!

I did the invitations for them for the wedding. They found one they liked, with a fall theme on the internet but it had owls in the tree and they wanted to have 2 cats with their tails forming a heart. So I drew the cats and basically copied the tree in my Paint Shop Pro program. They really liked it so it was basically printing the invitations off and matting them with a nice burnt orange color card stock and they were done. Here's the finished project.
Thanks for stopping by!

Funny Face

I swear my scrap mojo has gone on vacation and totally forgot to take me with it. I've only done two layouts all summer and this one would be no.#2. Thank goodness for sketch's that help us out when this happens. This layout was my take on the July 2014 Celestial Summer sketch challenge at Swirlydoos Kit Club. This is the sketch.


I'm a scrapper who believes in scrapping all sorts of photos of our lives, beautiful moments, family gatherings, Christmas, birthdays and yes even silly photos. So with that said I had this very funny photo strip of my grandson & I. The wedding that we went to in August the couple had rented one of those photo booths you see in the malls. The fellow that owned it had all of these silly costumes and things you could use. So I had the big bow on my head and my grandson had this silly half mask on. I love the pic of my dgs kissing my cheek with those exaggerated lips, lol. So here's my take on the sketch, I hope you like it!
