Welcome and thank you for joining us to celebrate the fairytale wedding of Princess Heather, the beautiful daughter of our hostess Liz Cline.
Today, January 28th, 2012, is Heather's wedding day. While you are hopping she will be getting dressed, walking down the aisle, and already celebrating her new life with Prince Charming.
This blog hop is dedicated strictly to 12 x 12 scrapbook layouts. All layouts you see in this hop have been sent to Liz and assembled into a wedding surprise scrapbook album for Heather, a gift fitting of any young princess. You are going to be amazed at what creations these fabulous ladies have designed.
As a “thank you” to blog hoppers, Liz has secured some dreamy blog candy to offer.

Without further ado before the "I Do!", let me tell you a secret: I was ALMOST unable to post a picture of my layout I did for Heather because (duhhhh), I skipped town before creating and scheduling this post. The picture of the layout I created is on my computer back home, and I am visiting my two favorite lovebirds, my parents Ed and Dot -- married 61 years -- in Florida.
... but, luckily for me, I finished my layout and mailed it to Heather's Mom Liz -- who despite all the hub-bub around her house, was able to take a pic of my layout and send me a picture of it to post here. Thank you, so much Liz, for doing that for me.
Here is the layout I created:
|I intentionally kept the layout clean, classic and elegant ... and in the bride's colors of ice pink and silver. I'm partial to the ice pink myself, since it's the color I wore as a bride when I married John (the love of my life!) nearly 13 years ago. It was the second-time (LAST time!) around me as a bride, and I just loved my elegant beaded jacket over a long chiffon dress. |
When I was worried that I would have nothing to post for this hop, I caroused a few of the many blogs I
stalk follow, and found these two gorgeous layouts -- ones I now WISH I had done for Heather. Perhaps I can scraplift one of these to have a re-do, once I'm back from Florida and home to my crafting supplies:
|This layout was done by Danielle Flanders and is currently featured on her blog, Homespun With Heart. She made it using the new "Victorian" line of Melissa Frances' "C'est La Vie" papers -- and I think it is simply GORGEOUS!!|
|This layout was done by international scrapper, Karola Witczak. It is featured on the manufacturer's blog of Melissa Frances Papers. Gorgeous, especially in that it features silver and gentle pink, the colors our Princess bride, Heather, has chosen for her wedding. |
These two BEAUTIFUL layouts remind me that I am a cardmaker at heart -- and how utterly beautiful layouts can be when we follow expert crafters. Oh, I'm just so jealous of the abilities it takes to make layouts like these. Beautifully done, Danielle and Karola!!
I'm sure you'll find more inspiration along the Hop! Please hop over to these Hops and leave comments/love. Your next stop is SHANNON.
