Lasting Memories/Starting the Matt Book


I have hopes of completing a scrapbook for AS3 before he graduates in 2 weeks...not sure I'll accomplish my goal but I did manage 3 layouts for it this weekend.  This first one uses the challenge from Lasting Memories
Couldn't get much easier than this layout...it took only 45 minutes including deciding on paper and photos! Can you spot the "metal?"
I love these cork letters from Close To My Heart!
Yes, there's my metal...a Tim Holtz clock :)

This second layout is from Homecoming. I always have a tough time taking pictures of layouts.  Anyone got advice for improvements?
The paper is from the Roxie collection (CTMH) and the flower is from a Hero Arts wooden stamp (I, um, think...)  The stars and heart and mini envelope were created with punches.
This mini CTMH calendar continues to be one of my favorite stamps...it's so versatile.  Unfortunately, it's not available any more.

And finally: a picnic in the park layout :)

Here's a photo of the bride and groom per Sharon's request :) Check out her blog - you'll love the work and the wit.  (We don't have any of the professional photos yet :)


Bride and groom with bride's parents. Yep, that would be the HH and me.

Thanks for stopping by,
Marie with a :)
