It's only been five years...





Well, it's been almost 5 1/2 years now since our lovely vintage style wedding. I love this picture of us, so many wonderfully bright things to come our way and we didn't even know it then.

Recently I was inspired to start scrapbooking my wedding album again. This lovely artist I found over at flickr, tara anderson, is the source for my most recent scrapbooking inspiration. Her pages are just amazing!

I really thought this page out. I left it to sit out in my craft room for about a week, moving pieces around, until I settled them into one spot and glued. That brooch has been around for a few months now. Found it at a flea market near Mt. Dora and have waited for a great reason to use it. Never thinking I would keep it for myself, but I'm so glad I did. The buttons are a funny story because they were tucked way in the back of an over crowded antique store in Mt. Dora. I fell in love with at least 3 sheets full of buttons. When I went to pay for them at the counter, to my embarassment, I learned that they were around $4-$8 a button, not for the whole sheet! The grand total was around $150 and I said, "no thank you." Because of my flushed face and embarassment, I bought these two.

Now, on to more designing. I will post as I go along and accomplish one page at a time.

Your wedding page is beautiful. It really looks like a vintage album page found in grandma's attic.

Oh man those buttons were high! I probably would have bought them and made my family eat beanie weinies for a month.

Hi!
To answer your question about my art project tutorial: Use the q-tip end dipped into the paint, blot, and dab a dot or two where ever you want it. Repeat for each color until desired effect.
I hope your summer is going like a nice glass of lemonade, sipped on the porch with loved ones and friends.
Hugs,
Mary
