Princess Wedding Surprise Blog Hop


Welcome and thank you for joining us to celebrate the fairytale wedding of 
my very dear friend
 " Princess Heather".

( You should have come from Kristy's blog, if not please start from the beginning here) .

  Today, January 28th, 2012, is her wedding day and while you are hopping she could be getting dressed, walking down the aisle, or already celebrating her new life with
Prince Charming.

I am so excited!!! This is my first blog Hop-- that I am actually a part of and not just a viewer. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a whole new world for me. This is an extra special Hop for me as the "Princess" being honored in this hop is a very dear friend. I am super excited to be a part of her wedding today. I know that she will make a beautiful "Princess Bride". Congrats to you both Heather & Kenny!

This blog hop is dedicated strictly to 12 x12 scrapbook layouts.
All layouts you see in this hop are being put together into a wedding surprise scrapbook album for Heather, a gift fitting of any young princess. You are going to be amazed at what creations these fabulous ladies have designed. A big Thank You to Liz at Tryin 2 Craft " Mother of the bride" for including me in on this hop.

For my project today I made 2 LO using the Sweethearts cartridge--what other cartridge would I use hehe.

 The first LO I used my invite to the wedding so that she could include her invite in her scrapbook. I cut

the bride and groom at 4", the phrase "I Do... was also cut from Sweethearts.

 Everything I used was stuff I already had so sorry I don't remember the exact names for the brand of paper I used.  I tried making the page very simple because the background paper was a little busy and glittery and I wanted the main focus to be the invite.

The cuts on the second page were also from Sweethearts.

 Hope you like.  Thanks for stopping by, your next stop should be Cory W!  Happy Scrappin!!!

This is a photo book I made as a give-away for my boys football team. Not too bad for being my first time making one.  The Raider guy was cut using SCAL.


Here is a Banner I made for my son Lucas when he made his First Holy Communion.  I used Inspired Heart (beautiful cartridge) Second picture is his invitation.  I was really happy with the way they turned out.


2 Retirement banners not sure you can see these very well.


This is a Retirement Banner I made for a friend of my Sisters it read "Happy Retirement" I used My Creative Time with Emma stamps for the Chic Lady holding the wine glass. The second banner is a "happy Birthday" banner using "Celebrations"
