To Have & to Hold Scrapbook pages



A couple more scrapbook pages to show you! This time featuring my daughter's wedding which was held on New Year's eve 2 years ago. I used the SU set, To Have & To Hold and some retired River Rock DP & Cardstock along with classic black and white cardstock. The ceremony & reception were held in a historic ballroom. I chose these colors, papers and stamps hoping they would reflect a bit of that charm.

You can double click on the first 2 photos to get a closer look at some of the shimmery detail. I used my Clear, Gold & Black Spica Glitter Pens to add a touch of shimmering elegance :) . I even used the Clear Spica on the black grosgrain and white taffeta ribbons so they sparkle too. I also used Kaiser self-adhesive pearls and a Martha Stewart Edge punch. I like using the self-adhesive pearls, because they're inexpensive plus you get 3 different sizes...so you always have just the right size! My pages today were both 8x8" size.


Incase you haven't heard...the new Spring Summer SU catalog is out and there are some super fun new stamps, papers and accessories! So far, my favorite new stamp set is Owl Together Now :) and you can see it right HERE. Isn't that just too cute? I'm being patient and trying to wait till Feb 1st to order it, so I can get some free SAB goodies. If you don't have a copy of the catalog yet, you can always check it out online right HERE or if you'd like your own copy, you can get one FREE, just by placing an order online, Feb 1st-April 30th. It's SU's way of saying thank you! Sale-a-bration is coming right up on Feb 1st. Another way to get free goodies just for placing an order! Whoo-hoo :) !!!


This will be my last post for a few days. After being back in Corvallis for 2 days, we're headed back to Portland tomorrow to take little Miss Chloe to the hospital for her next surgery on Thursday. I'll try to share updates when I can. Thank you so much for stopping by :) ... have a great week!
