Aquamarine #10

Entry for ScrapbookSteals Mid-Week Mojo Aquamarine #10:

Photo taken with my phone so not the greatest but hey at least it's done! From my sister-in-law & her husband's wedding (on a cruise), they celebrated their 5th anniversary this year *oops*.  I don't know why I have been dragging my feet on this album, I guess kid pages are just more fun ;-).  But I've committed myself to each week using mid-week mojo to finally give this event the attention & preservation it deserves.

Aquamarine #8

Quick post tonight for my second mid-week mojo layout completed on time ... 2 in a row, on a roll now :-)

This week's sketch can be found on Scrapbook Steal's blog.  When I first saw the sketch I thought of the poor forgotten wedding cruise album from 2008, I just ordered prints for it.. 2 of which are from Ft. Lauderdale & with some nautical embellishments I just ordered from Studio Calico they seemed like a perfect fit.  ....

Well due to the holiday weekend the prints haven't arrived yet & I really don't like pre-making pages without the corresponding prints...weird I know, for some reason I don't have the same issue with albums meant to be gifts (for the recipient to fill in).  Anyways, I decided to make Dillon his first official personal page instead.  I love this picture & the memories surrounding it but it's just been sitting around collecting dust...what's that you say? not even in a drawer?!  Indeed it's true!...but now it has the place of honor it deserves.


This picture is funny because it tells the exact opposite story of what really happened, Dillon looks so "meh why am I here!", almost miserable even but in reality he loved the whole trip taking in the colors & especially the music!   I love the Collectable line by My Mind's Eye, I think I have at least 90%  of it by now, so I made this page entirely from it (excluding Disney memorabilia).  Now I don't usually mix colors & patterns this much but it's become a big trend so I tried my hand at it & fairly pleased with the results ;-).
