Artbooking in August #2

Wow, does time fly when you are pushed to create every week.  You should have arrived here from
Adeline's Blog
This week I have chosen to tackle a bitter sweet memory...my wedding day.
For years, I said to myself "soon, soon I will find the right paper, the right embellishments to do this album up right" then Brian died.
Now I am faced with the dilemma of scrapbooking one of the happiest days of my life, without infusing it with bitter sweet memories.
Then this Artbooking cartridge came along.
Perfectly beautifully designed layouts, that do justice to the memory.

This is the layout I chose, with a few alterations.
First, I added a pocket behind the main picture.


I also added a bit of bling to the layout 


One of the neatest things about this Artbooking cartridge is the "background" paper.
You can make stunning layouts using only cardstock.

Now let see what   Paige  has created.

  6. OMG - love the tip about using an envelope to hold a pull out. I so wish I had thought of that a couple of months ago when I did one on a layout!

    On a personal note, my heart goes out to you for your loss. Your layouts are a beautiful celebration of a moment in time and capture the love and joy of the day. Now I truly understand why you rock out on layouts and mini albums - you truly understand the reason why we all need to scrapbook.

    Love ya girl! Hugs,

    Paige
