Scrapagogo Goodness

My September Scrapagogo kit arrived yesterday in the post and it is gorgeous, totally up my street, and to prove it I've done 3 layouts already with it!

I'm so excited about tonight - we are off house hunting! We've been trawling through house details and have picked out a couple to go and view this evening. It will be great to get a better idea of what is available so I can't wait!

We are also getting on well with our wedding photo album, all the details are with the album makers, just got to finalise the details and choose which pictures to have in black and white and which in colour, then off to print - yay!

It is a while since I felt inspired to scrap, but finally my mojo is back so I took the opportunity to scrap a couple of wedding and honeymoon photos.

The first is a layout of Michael - this photo was taken just before the wedding ceremony - we had two photographers so during the morning one was with me and the other with michael and his groomsmen. I was so pleased we decided to do it as he got some great shots, especially of them all playing pool! I used some of the July Scrapagogo kit for this one, only adding an Autumn Leaves stamp.

Some honeymoon pictures for this one - from the San Fransisco leg of our trip. I was really looking forward to seeing the painted ladies, I had read about the juxtaposition of the beautiful old houses and the San Fran financial district skyline in the background. The reality didn't disappoint - a gorgeous view! When I saw the little house rub ons from Heidi Grace in the August scrapgogo kit I knew they had to go with these photos!

Finally, one of my favourite wedding photos - i love the classic feel of it in black and white. It really was a perfect day and I'm enjoying scrapping it - at first I felt a bit of pressure to get the layouts so amazing to do justice to the photos, but now I realise that I can just print them off and scrap them again if I want so I should just enjoy it! Anyway, I used little yellow bicycle paper, chipboard and journalling block, making memories glitter letters and journalling blocks, metallic thickers, american crafts chipboard shapes, random lace from scrapagogo kits and stemma big brads, acrylic shape and clip.
