Toast The Newlyweds

I love these photos! It shows what fun loving people my brother and his wife are. They are always up for a good time and are always willing to laugh ... even if it is at themselves!

This is another layout I created using items from my stash. If I keep this up I might have to replenish ... oh who am I kidding ... I could probably survive a year without shopping (except for adhesive) but why would I want to do that! It is nice though to use up some of this older stuff though. I ran into a small issue after I had the whole layout done and went to add the final piece, my journalling.  Because my background paper was so busy the letters I had originally chosen just got lost.  So I changed them to a larger size and dark color which helped out quite a bit.  But I still had a problem with the "The" as it was so small that it was lost.  I decided to place them on this chipboard journalling piece which helped to anchor them and stand out a lot better.  Phew ... another problem solved!

This layout was based on this sketch.

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Basic Grey - Sulty Collection; Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts Thickers and Making Memories Alphas; Embellishments: Basic Grey - Sultry Collection Chipboard Set and Glossy Accents; Sketch: Allison Davis - Sketches for Scrapbooking Volume 3; Tools: Creative Memories Corner Rounder.

Your title is fabulous - I thought you'd planned it that way! Love how you kept the focus on the photos even though the paper is busy. Well done!
