Artists, start your scrapbook engines

The honeymoon scrapping has begun. I'm so excited. I make a layout and then run to show Henry so we can smile and laugh all over again at our blessings. This is a trip (and I don't just mean the cruise) we never would have imagined possible. Thank you for sharing this journey with us.

I was a bit rusty from my scrapping layoff during wedding planning. My only creations in 2008 prior to this were framed scrapbook art and a few digital pieces that I never got around to making into Hybrid pieces.... I did a ton of stuff for the wedding and designed more than I used, plus a fun PowerPoint presentation and several cards but no real pages in months.

This layout is from our Nassau photos and features all the musical elements of our day. I really got a jump start in the design by using layout sketches. I want to thank the talented people at Pencil Lines. com for getting me going.

Other worthy credits for the Nassau layout today go to:

My Mind's Eye-Tres Jolie reversible stripe (flower left, background layer right)
Worldwin-linen texture green card stock (base, both sides)
Green natural paper-Ellie Poo
Print Vellum-Cathy B by EK Success--it's raised and glazed
Shimmer scraps orange and yellow--not sure

Thanks for stopping by. I've finished 10 pages (five 2-page layouts) and I'm excited to be back in the game.
