Will & Kate

You can tell how far behind I am seeing as the royal couple will be celebrating their 2 year anniversary in a couple of months! Ooops!

First off I want to say that I did not go to the royal wedding and that these are not my pictures. My hubby and I got up at 4 am to watch the happy couple get married on television. For us, it was one of those moments in time you would look back on and say I remember that! My hubby and I were just in the early stages of dating when Princess Diana tragically passed away and to this day we still remember that day well. So when we were watching the wedding we thought this will be another one of those moments in time that we will look back on and remember (hence why we got up so early to watch it!). And because of that I wanted to do a layout about it. Of course, at 4 am my mind was still half asleep and I never thought to take any pictures of us watching the wedding on TV in our PJs! So instead, I went the wonderful world wide web and Googled the wedding and found some pictures I really liked. I sent them off to the printer and viola ... I had something to scrapbook!

Have any of you ever done something like that? Or scrapbooked important events that maybe you weren't there for but thought the were impactful in some way?

As I was scrapbooking these photos I found myself wondering if Kate would be scrapbooking them too.  If so I would love to see what she had done!

A&W Caravan 4 MS

Hello out there! I know it has been awhile since you have heard a peep out of me. Life seemed to get a little hectic for me the last couple of months and like most other people, I had to let some things go temporarily so that I could focus on other things. Unfortunately, that meant my blog went quiet and so did my scrapbooking! And even though life is still pretty busy right now, I thought I might be able to manage coming back to the blog world! So without further ado, I have a layout to share with you today!

After taking a break from scrapbooking, I always find sketches a great way to get back into it!  So as I eased myself back behind my craft table, grabbed my Sketches for Scrapbooking books (a real awesome resource you can find here) and started flipping through the sketches to find one I could use.  I stuck very close to the sketch only altering small details.  You have to start out slow right!?!

Thanks for stopping by!
