Yet another wedding layout...sorry :)

Yes, I know, you've probably seen enough layouts of my wedding. I couldn't help it. This is one of the photo's that was in the photo stash I'm trying to diminish. It is one of our favourites, such an awesome depiction of the guests at our wedding.

I think that the title should have been a tad smaller, but I really didn't want to waste the paper or work that went into putting them all through the cuttlebug, in different folders.

The paper used for the banners beneath the photo are all Kaisercraft, and come from the 8x8 Christmas paper pad.

River Rafting

When I started Scrapbooking in 2009 (has it been that long already?), I wasn't a huge fan of bright and colourful scrapbook pages. I gravitated towards floral, soft and understated papers. I find that, now, four years later, I am starting to absolutely love bright and colourful pages and embellishments. My style has definitely evolved, and while I still love my good ole romantic and undertoned colour schemes, I am enjoying the exploration of this new found enjoyment.

I have already done a layout of the day Stephan and I went river rafting for his birthday in 2012, but had a few extra's lying around. I've recently decided to try and get rid of all the photo's I have printed in the past, in order to force myself to scrap instead of hoard...


This layout used more of the Simple Stories 24/7 range. Loving it, such an awesome collection of paper and embellishments.Would you believe me if I told you I have had the above 'Water' sentiment in my stash for 3 and a half years? At least I am getting rid of the 'old' to make space for some new :) lol!

Jenga's first craft lesson

When we got Jenga (read: cute, flat faced, pekingnese...), it was in the middle of winter. The little fluffball would love to cuddle in her fleece blanket, on someone's lap. This is something she still loves to do.

I was putting together mini notecards for a local scrapbook store to make into kits when Jenga decided it was time for her blankie. Did you know dogs could be so demanding? for someone who can be very indecisive, it sure is an adjustment having a dog that is very much the opposite!

Naturally, I asked hubby to grab the camera for the moment :) and Jenga's first craft lesson began...

She thought it was the Best Day Ever! at that point :) Look how nicely she posed for the camera too :) I used leftover's from a Simple Stories kit (24/7 range) I got from  a scrapbook weekend away last year, and a sheet of black cardstock.

My hubby loves the speech bubble next to Jenga, lol! he thinks it's too funny :) I think it's too clever :)
