We are in one of our favorite restaurants in this picture and we had just come from a morning wedding. He was all dressed up and I snapped a picture.  My Husband whom I love very much is a very important person in my life.  We serve God together, we tag team it with the kids together, we both work to support our family together, we are just a good team.  Sure we have our ups and downs but I love him and I love our life together. We make a great TEAM!  I took me a while to finish this layout mostly because he made me mad a few times while creating this layout LOL but I did finish it and it turned out great I think!  I used some of everything and that fancy paper clip page charm tassle is what I created and things I am currently selling in my Etsy Shop.  I am actually sponsoring this months challenge on Picture This.

Not So Picture Perfect Challenge! ( Picture This)

Happy Monday!  I am excited that we have a brand new challenge for you this month on Picture This. This time around we are creating No So Picture Perfect layouts. You know those photo's that are not so good.  Well I choose this photo because although I love the two ladies that are in it. My daughter and myself The lighting kinda of messed this one up. It was really sunny out even though it was still a little chilly out. So if I had not had this challenge I would never had scrapped this photo.  Also there was too much in the background which I did get to cover a little with the butterfly embellishment.  I also used papers from different brands and used some of my favorite things.

I also got to use my handmade page charms that I have been making to put in my etsy shop.  The little doohickey to the left with the beads and lace.  I attached it to a colored paperclip.  Also did some paper layering , used my cricuit and twine.  I had fun with this one.  Go on over to Picture This where you can see more inspiration to use those not so good photo's and make great layouts with them.  They are still memories right? So go on over and be inspired to scrap those "Not So Picture Perfect Photos.  See you over there!!!!!
