Tiny Tux, Taffeta & Tulle

Happy Sunny Monday stampers! I hope you had a fabulously fun and productive weekend like I did! The scrapbook retreat was top notch, as always and I got.... wait for it.... TWENTY ONE pages completed! Yep, that's right. I was on a roll. And even better is that I am totally pleased with most of them (nobody's perfect, right?!).

Over the next week or so I'll show them all to you. You'll notice that several of them are wedding related. My sister got married in 2003. Somehow in my scrapbooks I left off with this event and skipped all the way to November of 2004! YIKES! I just noticed this the morning of my retreat so I changed my strategy and decided to try to catch up that 15 month gap. Anyway, that's why I'm suddenly working on pics from 7 years ago.
My son was 3 at this time and was (if I may so say) the cutest stinkin' little kid in a tux I've ever seen (I may be biased a little). I just want to go back in time and squeeze him. Nowadays I mostly see him in baseball cleats, jeans with holes in the knees and dirt in various places... although he's still cute as ever I think.
He was promised a new BB gun by my mother-in-law if he walked down the aisle just like he was told. We all thought he might back out at the last minute due to nerves, but he sure did it just like a little man. It was one of the flower girls that had last minute nerves and couldn't make it.

Anyway, this is the first of the 12x12 scrapbook spreads you'll be seeing by me. For it and all 5 wedding layouts I did I used the Designer Series paper by Stampin' Up! called Parisian Summer (retired a while back). It was SO NICE to have a collection with such soft lovely and coordinating colors to make every page look lovely together, but all be different. You'll see what I mean!

Scrappin' Tip: To help with faster and easier coordinating pages for multiple layouts of the same event try using a pack of Designer Series paper! It will make your work MUCh easier, trust me!

Thanks for visiting. My next post will be a different topic completely (still scrapbooking though!).

PS- As always my supplies will vary. Mostly I used SU stuff, but in this case the sticker title (ancient something from my stash) as well as the epoxy flowers (also ancient!) and the silver stick-on pearls are all non-SU. The background paper is Basic Gray.
