Wedding Album - used some of Chris' files

Jeff and I celebrated 30 years on June 25th.  We camped for a week to celebrate.  He fished and I scrapbooked.  Finished a few details when I got home.  You can see the entire album here:

Visual Designs by Chris files were used digitally by importing them into PSE 8:
#freebie Your Love Lifts Me Up
#CD00550 Love title
#CD00451 Your Love Brings Me Peace
#CD00883 Digital stamp - Next to You is Where I Belong
#CD00498 Wedding Titles - used the word GUESTS

I used the same products throughout for continuity:
*Colors:  Pink, Silver/Gray, Black, White and Dark Green
*Fonts:  Times New Roman and Wendy Medium
*Alphas:  Heidi Grace sticker letters (got on clearance at JoAnn's a few weeks ago) & Girls are Wierd Sizzix dies
*Scherenschnitte pieces by Gina Bear (purchased in 1999) I started running out of the pieces so I used a frame sheet that came with them and cut some Tim Holtz Tattered Banners (got that die on clearance a few weeks ago too)
*Heidi Grace epoxy hearts (40% off at JoAnn's)
*Pearls (50% off at Hobby Lobby)
*Mix of Prima, KI, and Paper Studio flowers (used coupons)
*Patterned Papers:  Anna Griffin QVC kit purchased in 2003, Becky Higgins Project Life: Wedding Edition Kit & some Midnight Core Kit
*Washi tape:  KI memories - $1 bin at Wal-Mart.  I tore some of it to look like an arrow and wrote people's names on it.  
*Stickers:  Cloud 9, 7 Gypsies and Paper Studio - all purchased on clearance
*Glitz and Glimmer Wedding stickers (40% off at HL) - used these on the covers and the outside of the page protectors.
*Rose Ribbon - purchased on clearance in 1999

I used 1/4" Corner Chomper which almost matches the Project Life corners

I created pennants from some patterned paper and many of the stickers.

This was my first time doing pocket scrapbooking.  It was fun, but I'm not certain I like the flimsiness of the pages.  I used a Pioneer strap hinge album.  Even with the pocket scrapbooking, I like my pages to appear as a book.  

Sorry for the glare.  I tried to use natural light without a flash but it still glared a bit.  

As you can see, I had been planning this for a long time with some of my purchases.  I am glad to have it finished.  Here's to 30 more years!

** I also photo copied our marriage license to include on one of the last pages of the album.  It was fun doing these photos.  I am glad I didn't do them when I was a newbie scrapper.  *smile*
