I'm Back to scrap...

     I have been so preoccupied with my daughter's wedding for the past 5 months I forgot how to post to my blog...  lol. I was at a 3 day Scrapbooking Retreat last weekend and found my mojo..I'M BACK!!! I cranked out a whopping 50 pages at the retreat and had so much fun laughing and meeting new and old friends- such a good time I'm going again in October.
 I just wanted to post a few layouts that I was working on- Gee guess what theme I was scrapbooking ? Yeap wedding pictures from Jamaica  and lots of them. So here we go with some layouts:
 The first one of my daughter is my favorite page I did during the weekend retreat and I also got a prize in the Layout contest for this page. I will be applying this over at The Studio Challenges  for the Vintage Theme challenge, which I believe this qualifies for in several ways. I printed the pictures in Sepia for that special effect and used distressed inks on the papers. I made the silk flower from tulle and ribbon and added a  pearl button brad in center. I found this florist greenery in silver and thought to use it for a special embellishment. I also used several rub-ons, florist pin, vellum quote, stickles, silk flowers, beaded lace ribbon and a journal spot to write my thoughts at the moment I saw her.
 Here is a layout of the handsome Groom- my new son-in law (Wayne) I simply added an overlay on top of a patterned paper- which I stamped some extra brown leaves on and cut out the area around the title- so the dots were covering it up. Matted the 3 photos on green cardstock and inked the edges.. Simple, but nice.
And here is the whole Bridal Party on a 2-page layout. I wanted the pictures to stand out and not all the patterned papers so I found some with alot of colors of the wedding - used a Recollections border punch and made some flowers out of white paper bags with punches and a brad center. And cut the title with Gypsy Font cricut cartridge. Of course my other 3 children our in the wedding party- the first two groomsmen on left side of page are my sons- and the maid of honor  the last girl on right side is my other beautiful daughter, escorted by the two best men.
     So, now that I'm back in the swing of things and have some time to myself- I will get busy and do some more blogging and scrapping..let the good times roll this summer!
