So I entered the Swirlydoos Card Challenge for October 2014. Here are the twists for this month.
#1: Basic colors of your
card have to be white/off white/cream/beige/light brown/light blue. You
can use them all or just 1, it is up to you. You can use 1 different
color, for example, the flowers. (you may use different shades of this
color for your flowers) Of course it is okay to use black or dark brown
for your sentiments.
#2: Stenciling/ or stamping
#3: Use some sisal/ unraffled twine/ thin thread, as long as it adds texture!
I'm on Team 2, week 2, following Linda Pekrul's card from week 1, here's her pretty card:
I basically stayed true to Linda's card. I used some blue and brown/creme winter papers from my stash. I used some blue ribbon instead of twine and a snowflake instead of a flower. I used my "Noel" stamp for my sentiment and used a few blue gems dotted around the card along with some lace. Here is my lift of Linda's card:

I decided since I was doing layouts for our daughters wedding album for her I should do a page with one of the invitations I did for them. The layout is based on a sketch I found on Pinterest but now I can't remember who's sketch it was, if anyone knows let me know so I can give credit where credit is due. So here's the result, hope you like it!

Another page for the wedding album. I just love both of these photos of my husband and his/our daughter. I love how happy our daughter looks in these photos and how happy my husband is, he is so happy that Noelle has found such a wonderful husband and he knows he doesn't have to worry about her anymore...even though he'll still worry, you know how men can be about their daughters, lol. The papers I've used for this layout is a wedding kit that I bought at Walmart. The paper is not really a heavy type of card stock but it's still good for these wedding layouts. The black flowers I've used were in my stash but I believe they are from Petaloo and the white flower is from Manorhouse. The die cut white branch & leaves are from Die-namite's dies. I'm quite pleased at how it turned out. TFL!

Well I seem to be on a roll, I've actually managed to do another layout for our daughters Wedding album. This one is a photo of her engagement ring. It was so cute, she was saying how sparkly it was when she sent this photo to me. A few minutes later she text me a 10 second video of her hand moving so I could see how it sparkled, lol. For this layout I used Websters "Hollywood Vogue" collection that I had in my stash. Once I started laying things down it came together quite quickly...I think my mojo finally decided to come home from vacation. Anyway here's the finished project, TFL!

Well I've been in a real scrapping funk these days, my mojo went on vacation and forgot to take me, lol. I promised our daughter that I would do a scrapbook of her wedding for her. Yesterday I got my butt in gear and did the first layout for the album. I started with a photo that the kids got taken on the night they got engaged. I was texting back and forth with Noelle about getting engaged and she filled me in on exactly how Frank proposed to her. I took her words from that text and used it for the journalling on the layout. I thought that it would be cool for their future kids to read this and see how it all happened and how happy their Mom was by reading her own words. So here is the layout, I hope you like it! TFL
