Amber 3, when 3... became 1

I have finally started scrapping my wedding pictures from almost 5 yars ago. I used the weekly sketch from Scrapbook steals to bring these two very special pictures together. You can check the sketch out here

I wanted to use papers that I normally wouldn't because teh softer tones don't always go with pictures of rowdy boys. Carta Bella papers went perfect with these pictures. My husand and I knew we wanted to involve his son in our ceremony because I was marrying him just as much as his dad that day.

Thanks for stopping by.

Amber 2, APA June Babies, Mama Meet Up

I have been very blessed in my life, not with material things but the little things that matter most. When I was pregnant with Andru, I found an on line forum, American Pregnancy Association. It split up expecting mothers into groups by the month you were due, I was due in June. We all shared experiences and could talk about whatever it was amazing. I have been lucky enough to meet five of our June moms and babies in person.

I used this weeks Scrapbook steals sketch, which can be found HERE for this page. I have had these photos of Andru and Mason since June 2011, they were just under two years old. When they were moving to Mississippi from Montana, my little town was a rest stop for the night and we were able to meet up for a morning play date. The kids had a blast jumping on the bed.

Our History in the Making

This picture is of my husband and I from 2003. We were just 19/20 years old and I think this was taken just a few months after we started dating. It is amazing to look back at the pictures and see how much we have grown and how our lives have changed.

I scrapped off the sketch with this layout, I came up with the idea all my own and just ran with it. I just LOVE Echo Parks Sweet Day. I am not one to use just one collection but this page I did with the exception of two elements.  The soft tones of this collection really took on the newness of the relationship and give it a nice feel. I cut two journal cards that are tucked behind the photo and photo mat from the Large Tag set from Kiwi Lane. The Scallops on each row of paper was hand cut by using Kiwi Lane mini scallop template.
