Wedding Album (layout 232-247)

Hello everyone, I have been away for the last little while since I have been crazy busy doing home renos. Our contractor finally finished his first part of the renos, last Friday so last weekend I was finally given the go-ahead to paint and since I have been wanting to paint for about three weeks I jumped at the opportunity (even cancelled camping to do so). I knew it would be a big job but it took all weekend but finally got it finished. Friday night I did the 1st coat in my son's room, Saturday morning did the 2nd coat. Saturday afternoon put the 1st coat in the kitchen and hallway. Saturday night did the 1st coat in the living room. Sunday morning did the 2nd coat in the kitchen/hallway and put my son's room back together. Sunday night 2nd coat in the living room. So by Sunday night my arms were exhausted and needed a break.

Unfortunately there is no rest for the wicked (hehehe not that i'm that wicked), as I leave for holidays this upcoming week and wanted to make a wedding album for my cousin who is getting married in September but figured since I'll be seeing them on holidays that i could bring it with me and save on shipping. So this week (after I put the kitchen, living room, and hallway back together), I have been frantically working on a wedding album. And because I have been going crazy on it I was actually get some scrapping for myself done as well (see next posts. . .yes i said postS)!!

Here is my cousin's wedding album (you will have to wait a little longer to see the renos since our floors aren't in yet nor is our kitchen done and i want to show the complete transformation so will have to wait a couple more weeks):

235&236: based on a PageMaps sketch

237&238: based on one page sketch by Vicki Saulnier (aka princess pea) as part of Let's Capture our Memories (LCOM) sketch #79. When I first saw this sketch I thought it would make the most amazing two page sketch for this wedding album because of all the journaling blocks that I used from Simple Stories (story of us). Hope you can play along with LCOM:

Here is LCOM's sketch inspiration:
And my take (turning it into a 2-page):

241-242: based on a sketch by Laura Whitaker for ScrapMuch? July 4th reveal:

Here is my take, I pretty much stuck to the sketch except I used larger flowers (to keep with the rest of the album) and added a bunch more embellishments and journaling blocks. Hope you can play along this month with ScrapMuch?

Thank you for stopping by, i really enjoyed making this album and was going for a more elegant and clean look as my cousin is a little older, it is his second marriage, and they are having a smaller more intimate wedding so it will be a little more low-key.

Supplies used:
Papers: bazzill basics (blackbird cardstock), martha stewart (kraft doily lace & neutrals)
journaling blocks: simple stories (story of us)
die-cuts: simple stories (story of us)
punch: martha stewart (lattice border, heart)
flowers: petaloo (color me crazy mulberry), dollar store
gems: my mind's eye (lush 2 navy)
ink: distress ink (seedless preserves), tattered angels (sapphire, patina), perfect pearls mist (grape fizz), distress stain (seedless preserves), lindy's stamp gang (sweet violet purple teal, gregarious grey)
stickers: dollar store
brads: unknown (been in my stash forever)

Have a great day :)
