Scrapbook Sunday

Yay, I ♥ scrapbooking! These are two of my favorite photos of Joshua and I, taken with the self timer on our camera at a hotel in Raleigh, NC. It was one of our many weekend rendezvous last year. I believe he had just gotten back from a longer field op/training exercise, and it had been nearly a month since I'd seen him. My dearest daddy graciously purchased a plane ticket for me from Albany to Raleigh to spend the weekend with my love!

I swear I'm going to get better at crediting images/people/products used, so let's start here! For this 8x8 layout, I used the following:

  • The embellishments & stickers are all Me & My Big Ideas Soft Spoken EmbellishmentsRachel's Notebook— Love
  • The page itself is DCWV Textured CardstockBrights (8"x8")
  • The black shimmer paper I mounted the photos on and the silver shimmer paper I wrote out the place and date on (which didn't scan well, but I promise they're shimmery!) are scrap papers from when I worked at American Greetings
  • The two little brads in the corners are American Crafts Elements— Mini Brads (in black)

I love having a blog, because it really does keep me accountable for getting things done that I want and need to get done. Maybe I did take a brief hiatus, but I'm back and I'm so glad I set time aside this weekend for my personal "Scrapbook Sunday!" My cousin Amanda came over and made a birthday card for her friend while I played around with these two photos for a few hours... haha, it seriously takes me forever to do one page. No wonder no one ever wants to scrapbook with me!
