Shine & Swagger

OK .. So I just LOVE this photo! My photographer snapped a few good shots of this "pose," but this one is by far my favorite. All the guys' faces are just priceless. Sure makes me wish I could go through my wedding day again! :)

This photo is 10x10 and what is nice about it ...  I didn't order it like that! After we got all of our professional photos back (and the copyright), we put all of the photos into Shutterfly books. Eight of them... 12x12 books... about $50 a book... you do the math! We did it when they were 40% off around Christmas, but it still was spendy.. but SO worth it! Who knows if I will ever scrapbook all the photos or even half of the photos, but at least all of the photos will be in books so that they can always be easily looked at!

Well.. this photo actually comes from one of those Shutterfly books. One of the books we received had two ink splatters on two different pages. I contacted Shutterfly and they sent me out a new book! What else would I do with the "ruined" book but cut out some of the pictures and use them on scrapbook pages.. right?!


I love this page! I knew there was not going to be much for layering like I usually do, but I wanted to have three embellishment clusters. I stitched in purple around the outside because it went with the turquoise that I used throughout the page and it was my wedding color. I figured I wouldn't be using purple much at all in my wedding photos because well, let's face it, purple isn't used much in scrapbooking! 


And Elle's Studio tag is always a good addition to a page! 



And a mix up of alphas! I have to say that I just LOVE that Lullaby font and color of Thickers AND I am running VERY low on them! :( A few pieces of washi tape and some gems and this layout was finished! Thanks for looking!

Oh I love it! I think I told you that on on Instagram already. :) The Lullaby font is so cute. I don't think I have that one! I like how the black and white photo keeps the page simple and not overwhelming. Plus the stitching looks fab!
