I printed off pictures today especially for this sketch challenge from Let's Scrap! I used the "wallets" feature to make my photos at the bottom proportionate. I mixed it up and put my title on the left side of the page (where the 2 smaller photos are) and my journaling on the right side of the page (in addition to 2 cropped pictures).
I decided to scrapbook my fun day of trying on dresses, in search of the perfect wedding dress. The "list journaling" challenge at Scrappin-N-Chattin was perfect for this because I numbered my favorites and told a little about each one.
I used DCWV Sweet Stack for the background, cutting 2 1/2 inches from the bottom and flipping it so that the white scallop lace was facing down instead of up. The journaling on the next page says "3 generations. 2 hour appointment. 1 wedding dress." That is my grandma and mom with me.
I'm so glad my Mom took TONS of pictures that day. Here I am looking in the mirror after trying on "the one". And my smiling, yet panicked face, as I paid for the first wedding expense. Click on the photo to enlarge, if you are interested in the journaling.
So here is my dilemma~ does this layout go in the wedding scrapbook, regular chronological scrapbook (mixed in with our spring layouts because that is when I bought it), or do I do a separate album of wedding "prep" stuff and other things I want to save about our day that wouldn't go in the actual wedding album? Any thoughts/advice? :)
