And here is the flip side of the book!

Exchanging of rings and now presenting 
Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Roteman - 

The first dance and cutting the cake...

The Roteman Family and Cindy's beautiful bouquet-

I am sharing the rest again with Robin's Scrap Nest and Word Art Wednesday Anything goes Challenge #151.


This is an album I made for my step nephew and his bride of their wedding day.  I finally sent it to them as they celebrated their first anniversary.  I forgot to take photos or to blog it but Cindy posted the photos on Facebook so I wanted to share them here.  I struggle with anything smaller than 12x12 and this was probably about 5"x7" mini accordian book.  I remember struggling with the page edges so I dipped them in glue and gold glitter.  

Here we go - 

The Cover-

I had picked out a lot of different wedding embellishments and you will see several quotes throughout.  The photo of them is from the invitation.

This is the wedding party making their entrance.  The photo on the right includes my Step Brother Jeff who was the best man and the cute little tot with him and the Maid of Honor is Cindy & Tim's cute little son Elijah.

The flower girls are Tim's niece Kaitlyn and Cindy's daughter Nicole.  And finally - here comes the beautiful Bride with her Dad.

On the left is a copy of the cover of their ceremony program and on the right a photo saying their vows.

Here are the rings!

These pages were the front side of the book...Hopefully she will share the flip side so I can show you the rest!  Watch for another post coming soon!

I have shared these with Robin's Scrap Nest and I am also posting to Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes challenge #151.

Thanks for checking out my memories of this beautiful day!

I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!

From a wonderful trip to Ohio. I met some awesome online friends 'in real life', stayed with Robin of Robin's Scrap Nest and her awesome family and then went to a fabulous fun 4 day crop at Rivercrest Barn!  There I met many more online friends 'in real life' and had lots of fun.  There will be a batch of layouts with photos from there coming soon.  

For tonite I am sharing the book I made while I was there as a gift for Robin.

I had hoped to get everyone that was there to sign in on this page but I know that a few did not get to sign. 

If you look carefully below you can see that the word SMILE is embossed on the box on the right.

It's hard to see but the bottom block has an epoxy that reads "Don't squat with your spurs on!"

I thought the 12" embossing folder used below was just perfect as if you look you will see there is a robin on the bottom!

My next page was done using the layout for Scrapping Everyday Miracles Mini-Crop Challenge #2.

The Sketch:

Don't you love my new embossing folder on the mats below?  I know it will quickly become one of my favorites.  The flower is wood!

The stars I used here are burlap and the two sparkly things holding up the acrylic word are tiny clothespins!

This was the perfect opportunity to use this embossing folder.  Rivercrest barn has the most spectacular chandeliers everywhere throughout the barn!

The cute little animal paper piecings are from a swap that I was in years ago in a group called Kroppin Kids.  So happy I finally found the perfect place to use them.

I hope you enjoyed getting to see my book and wait until I start sharing the fun photos of the crop!  We had a truly awesome time!

I am also going to share this gift with Word Art Wednesday for their Anything Goes challenge #151.
