November Series, Layout Rewind, Day 1, Wedded Bliss

I thought for the month of November, I would share some of my older layouts as a way of getting all of the layouts I've done since I've started scrapping up on this here blog.  I've made over 300 layouts since I started scrapping and I find it really interesting to go back and look at where I started to where I am now.  I don't ever have the urge to redo a layout - mostly because there are always new and better pictures to scrap - but there are some of these that make me cringe when I look at them.  Hey, it's all part of the process of learning, right?

So for the next 30 days, I hope to share with you pages I've made as scrapping has gone from a hobby to a passion for me.  The layouts won't be posted in any particular order and I'll share what I remember about them as best I can.

I hope you enjoy looking back with me.

And now, to stop babbling and get started....

This layout was created in early 2010.  It's the first time I printed a photo at 8x10 and used that photo as the basis for my entire layout.  The photo in the bottom right is the one printed at 8x10.  I learned a valuable lesson with this layout.  See the pearls - they were straight when I put them in the binder.  Always let things dry first - or a better way to do pearls is to actually string them and then attach the string to the page.  Each layout teaches us something!
