I feel like I fell off the face of the internet world the last week or two. Which to be honest, isn't necessarily a bad thing. We have had SOOOOOO much going on, with the school year coming to an end, that there were just so many other things that needed and deserved my attention. So it's been kind of nice to not sit in front of the computer as much.
I do have some photos and stories to share, and a very big project that I am hoping I can share as well. But for now, I have a very quick layout to share with you, just to get something new up on this blog of mine.
Last weekend, Stephanie (the owner and creative genious behind Bella Blvd) got married. I thought it would be fun to spend the week leading up to her wedding sharing wedding layouts from our entire design team. I asked each designer to create a layout using their own wedding photos. So many of us have used the new wedding collection for layouts, but I know that several of us use photos from friends and family members. So I challenged everyone to use their own photos.
Joe and I were married over 14 years ago. So I had to dig for photos to use. My negatives are all super organized, so I had every intention of getting some reprints made for my layout. However, time got away from me, as usual. Next thing I knew, it was the day before my layout was suposed to be up on the blog (the beauty of being the one to write the blog, is that I can get away with doing projects totally last minute!). I was sick with the stomach flu, but there was no way I was going to skip out on participating.
So I dug out the super simple album I had put together years and year ago, and I found a few photos to use. I tore them right out of the album. I should really get them reprinted, so I don't come across an empty page in the album years from now. But I also know that I probably won't reprint them, and when I come across an empty page, I'll just laugh about how I tore out photos for something else.
This layout is quite simple, and I am pretty sure it's the quickest layout I've put together in quite a while. Sometimes that's just the kind of scrapping I need.
