I know the wedding has been over for a couple of weeks now, but I still haven't gotten the professional photos to scrap! But, Jenna got a hardbound book as part of her photography package and they emailed it to us to proof, it's beautiful! The photographer was awesome, I would recommend him to anyone!!! I don't know if the link will work, but I'm going to try. Let me know what you think!

Well, today Jenna wanted to ride around and take pictures of the local scenery. The leaves haven't started changing a whole lot, but it was a pretty day. So, we rode, and we walked. And we walked some more. We walked all over the town square, then we went to the river and walked. Then we went to the pumpkin farm and walked AND then we went to Amicalola Falls State Park and walked some more, with many, many steps. 850 steps to be exact. And did we do the smart thing and walk up and then have the easiest last by coming down???? Nope, we walked down, then had to turn around and walk back up! I probably won't be able to lift my legs tomorrow! But we got some decent pics. We just have to do it all over once the leaves change a bit more! Anyway, here is a sampling of the photos we got!!

But it was fun while it lasted!!! In a way I'm glad I'm out, this week's class is going to be tough. It's about breaking all the rules in scrapping! So it's out of the box scrapping, and I'm not an out of the box scrapper!!!!
Anyway, here's a page that I did for my lss. It's a picture of the beach in Destin with a storm coming in. I just loved the look and thought the pic was perfect for the Creative Imaginations Tidepool paper!!! I added some other stuff too!!!
Thanks for stopping by, I'm hoping to do some more wedding layouts soon!

Well, I made it to round 5, this may be my stumbling block!!! This week's class in "color theory and using neutral colors to tie your other colors together", it's by the talented Miss Heidi Sonboul. It helps you to take any colors and use them together when you use the right neutral color, like white/black. This is not my typical style, but it's what I came up with. Cross your fingers for me, and my girls Gabi and Tracey too!!!

Well, we haven't gotten the professional photos yet, but I couldn't wait to start scrapping, so this is using a pic taken by my cousin. It's Jenna with one of her bf's little girl. This page just came together so easily. I used some of the new Laundry Line by My Mind's Eye. I can't wait to get more pics!!!
I made it to the next round of Top Designer over at Bad Girls! This is week 5! I'm really enjoying it this year, but this week's assignment was tough for me. It was pulling out colors of a photo and tying it all together with neutral colors! I got a page done and turned in, now I'll hold my breath and see!!! I may post it here later!

Well, I was nervous but I made it through to Round 4 at the Bad Girls Top Designer class. This week our class was on ACCESSORIZING, and for some reason I struggled with it. I'm not sure why! I used some Fall colors and embellies for this one. Lots of texture and playing. I used alcohol inks and paint to cover the chipboard title to match the page, then put Crystal Accents on top for shine. I stamped the leaves and crumpled them. I also painted some torn cardboard for texture! I hope it's balanced enough and has enough flow to it! My fingers & toes are crossed!!!
