Sweet & Silly

I've got another layout to share today. I am a little late in posting, but it's Sunday and I don't do a lot of rushing around on Sunday...just take some time to enjoy everything!! It's usually one of my days off from work...which means it's a lazy day. Went out to breakfast with my hubby, hit the fabric store, and then did some crafting. I will be back in a bit today to share a card I am making for the Lawnscaping challenge, but I wanted to get my layout up!!

I put together another page from my sister-in-law's wedding. This one showcases a pic of her daughter (my neice and God-daughter...funny that both of my neices are my God-daughters!!). I used my super zoom lens (not sure of the mm's right now so that's what I am calling it) for most of the wedding. I really wanted to capture the moments and facial expressions as much as possible. For some of the posed pics, I did switch over to the normal lens which allowed me to capture the dress, etc. Love this photo of my neice though...she's making a face at the other flower girl...and it was just too cute!! I didn't even know how cute it was until I was going through the pics after the wedding!! I used the latest Shimelle sketch for this layout too. Funny story in that I saw her layout on 2peas and LOVED it...then a few days later she's got that up as the inspiration for the sketch!!

I used a lot of Circa 1934 on this layout's going to sit opposit the layout a did lat week so I wanted to make sure they flowed well to my eye. I also used my Labels One die and some Papertrey Ink Coaster Board for my embellishment clusters. Die cut perfectly!!! Love that coaster board!!! I also used some lace that I've had in my stash for a while!! Adhered it with glossy accents (best stuff to hold things like this...they aren't going anywhere)!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
