My first wedding scrapbook page

Our 1 year anniversary is coming up on September 15 and we haven’t even started our scrapbook.  I’ve been trying to get my wife to do it with me, but she’s been putting all her creativity into her cooking lately (not that I’m complaining about that).  So… I’m taking the initiative.  I’ll be obscuring our boy’s face with digital stickers because of the public nature of blogging, but everything else will be paper, stickers, my own writing and drawing, and embellishments.  All the photos are from our amazing photographer- Brian Hale at  And here’s the first page:

ImageThe layout came from “Sketch n Scrap” (  It was so clean and simple it was just perfect for first page of a wedding scrapbook.  My beautiful wife is on the left and I’m on the right.  This was made with a really pretty velum with dried flowers in it, ribbon, and card stock, and stickers.  The little glittery flowers in the upper left hand corner have tiny pearl-like beads in the center.  I have a feeling they’ll be making several appearances throughout the scrapbook.
