Hi everyone. This is my latest wedding album contribution. I have used a fabulous paper from the DCWV (Die Cuts With a View) Once Upon A Time Paper Pads for this double page spread. I don't know if you can see it very well but the background paper has a sketch of the inside of a huge cathedral..... which I thought rather appropriate for my photos of the ceremony. Our church wasn't as grand as this.... but it was still rather cute.
I have decided to add lots of hidden journalling behind the photos so that the kids can get a real feel for the day. Lots of information that wouldn't interest anyone else. Like we didn't choose the church. The priest I wanted was retired and had to ask a friend if he could borrow their church for the day. So we only got to see the church when we turned up for rehersal, but there was a mix up that night and we couldn't get in.... we actually did our rehersal in front of the church... So the first time we saw the church was when we turned up to get married. It looked great though as my mother made crotchet bells and flower bunches to hang from the pews and anywhere else they would fit. Also Father Mel was undergoing chemotherapy at the time so he was a little forgetful and forgot to say "you may now kiss the bride".... but we got there at the end.... and most bizarre of all when we were married the church bells were rung.... the first dong sounded more thud because there was a pigeon in the bell who got squashed by the ringing of the bell. So the bell ringer was showered in carcass and feathers..... Hmmmm lucky we're not superstitious!
My point is though that we have alot of memories to share with the kids and often in trying to fit that into a layout we shortcut the information so I'm going to do both. The visible information of general interest and then the hidden pull out or lift up journalling to fill in all the quirky information the kids will love reading about!

...." I don't have a CLUE about what to do next...an embellishment? Journaling? Arghhhh!" That's the little voice in your head by the way - lol. ...and don't worry - you're not alone. We've all got one. Without a doubt, the toughest part of scrapbooking is coming up with new ideas .... ...And when the ideas dry up, so does the motivation... ...But don't let a lack of ideas stop you from PRESERVING your memories.... ...Because behind each photo, there's a STORY... ...A story that needs to be told... ...So people aren't forgotten and those special occasions will always be REMEMBERED ... ...So if you get stuck for new ideas, I want to help re-ignite your creative spark, so you can: • Make SERIOUS progress on that pile of photos you've been meaning to turn into pages.... • Get more CREATIVE than ever before...and produce layouts that looks like art. ... • Create pag
Scrapbooking is a wonderful hobby! Besides being relaxing and fun, it also allows you to be creative and to spend quality time with your family and friends. Plus, it results in a storybook of lifelong memories. One very important element of scrapbooking is getting it all organized. This includes, but is not limited to: storing all of your supplies in an organized fashion so they can be found instantly when you need them. remembering what supplies to pick up at the store, and eliminating duplicate purchases. finding time to research new and creative ways to spruce up your scrapbooks. finding enough time to enjoy the art of scrapbooking in your busy life. TELL A STORY. Plan your photos, before you shoot. Instead of taking random shots of someone standing here, or someone else sitting there, tell a story. For example, let's say it's Halloween. You may plan on taking four photos of your child: on the hayride taking him/her to the pumpkin field.
