Hi friends! I feel like I have been on hiatus for entirely too long...well no actually I have just been really busy! Started my sabbatical from work on Oct 14, got married on Oct 19, went to Costa Rica for our honeymoon on Oct 27 and we just got back yesterday!!! So there are LOTSSS more pics and layouts and posts to share for the next few months... I will be attempting to start scrapping all these photos as well as make lots of crafty/photo gifts for family for the holidays! So it's gonna be crazy around here, but the good kind of crazy- the creative kind! I am even going to start posting on my fb page a few items I will be selling for the holidays, so stay tuned for that! I am so excited things will kind of be 'back to normal' except that.... I am now Mrs. James L. Hollister!!!!! :) soooo happy:))
Ok. so enough newlywed mushy stuff. I was able to do 3 layouts last week after the wedding and this is the first one I will share up today. These photos are from my scrapping girls weekend in Biloxi, MS with 2 of my very favorite ladies...Carmen and Leanne. We went to an all weekend crop retreat and spent the next day at the spa and pool all day at the casino...it was fabulous!!! Here's my layout:
Here is another photo of the whole thing:
A close up of one of the clusters. I used one of the Tim Holtz fragments that Monica and I made/ played with at convention. They are so fun to make, will have to share up a tutorial on how to make those on here soon maybe...or maybe we'll have a class on them at Scrapping Frenzy! Also I used a large yellow fabric rose, some raffia ribbon underneath, tickets, paper flowers and a button and resin rose.
I don't know why but I have this thing with taking pictures of my feet lately :) lol
And for my journaling, i used a basic shipping tag that i inked and then tied a bit of teal colored tulle on.
A close up of the stamping near my title and the cool fiber piece i used to underline it.
Ok, well that is all for today, short and sweet! Stop back in tomorrow for another fun layout and keep checking in with me this month as I share up new projects, layouts, and handmade items I will be selling for the holidays on my fb page...thanks friends! Until next time, Peace Y'all~ VV
