What a week! It has been great! It rained, excuse me, I meant to say, we had thunderstorms from the moment I woke up to the time I went to bed so it was a perfect week to scrapbook and scrap I did! I finished 5 pages, one of them being a double layout, for my wedding album, one layout for my one year anniversary album and one card!

The picture on the left is my fishy (his name is Navi) and you can see through the window how bad the weather was! (pic taken at 10 AM)

Anyway, here are the layouts that I finished. Just a warning, this will be a long post!

This is the first page I make for my one year anniversary album, which, as you all know, my husband and I spent it in Bahamas and it was awesome! I used Sketch Inspiration Sketch #126 for this one and I went with a monochromatic blue look, since we were sitting on a boat on our way to go kayaking. The blue flourish mimics the waves and I cut it with my pazzles, as well as the title (it was pain to glue down every single tiny letter!). I made the flourishes with blue and white 3D paint. The flowers are from my stash that I've had for years now and I know for sure that the smaller blue ones are from Oriental Trading. The dark blue paper is from the Mariposa Stack by DCWV (I just got it last weekend and I love it!). The wavy backgroud is based on Gabi's Tutorial on her blog.

I think this is my all time favorite layout for my wedding album! I love the close ups of our hands exchanging the rings so I made them the focus of this layout. I made the bling rings using rhinestones that I purchased from Joann. The title and black flourishes in the bottom I cut with the Pazzles. The greenery I handcut and stickled. The butterfly and white flowers are prima and the die cut paper is by Creative Imaginations.

This was a fun layout to do and I finished it in less than 2 hrs! It's a record for me, ok? Because we got married in a park, we couldn't have open flames so I googled and found out about the sand ceremony which I though suited us more, living in Miami and having an outdoor wedding, so we went with it. It's pretty much the same idea as the candle ceremony. The green (we chose the colors) symbolizes God, white was mine and black was my husband, so we get God in the bottom, the foundation of our marriage, the my husband's layer as a person, a white layer, symbolizing myself as one, then another green layer, God over us and then both my husband and I pour our sand, mixing it, symbolizing marriage and that we are now one. It is finished with another green layer, God sealing the marriage. This page has a lot of meaning to me so I decided to go simple with it. I made the bling flourish with 3D paint and rhinestones. The background paper, flowers and the lace frame are by Prima.

I love how this page came out too! I absolutely love the green die cut paper by Pink Paislee! I handmade the butterflies and bling flourishes with stickles and 3D white paint. I handcut and stickled the greenery. The flowers are from Prima and the black background paper is from the Mariposa Stack by DCWV. The cream ribbon pleat was part of the big box of goodies that I won from! It's also from Pink Paislee.

Last but not least, this is our parents double layout. I struggled a little with a double page spread but I'm happy with the result.I used Martha Stewart lace punch to mat the large picture and her scallop dot punch for the bottom border. Again, I handmade the bling flourishes and butterflies and handcut the greenery.

If you made if this far and you are still awake, thank you! You just have two more cards to go! :)

I made this card for a friend who just turned 25 and she loved it! As you all know, I love to make my own flowers and I recently got a terrific book from Susan Tierney Cockburn. The title is "Paper bouquet-using paper punches to create Beautiful Flowers"-it's awesome! Anyway, the butterfly was an accident. I tried printing it in purple to match the rest of the card but my blue ink died and pink came out. I like it though! I embossed the background purple paper with my cuttlebug and handmade the 3D paint flourishes.

This card I made using only scraps and it's just a generic (women) birthday card. Very nice, simple but quick!

Thanks again for stopping by my blog! I appreciate it!
