The Best of Summer 2011

Saturday, June 30, 2012

This honestly has to be one of my favorite photos of Alex and I to date.  This photo was taken July 4, 2011.  Summer 2011 was the busiest, craziest summer for us: we planned our wedding party, which took up most of the entire summer.  We really didn't have much time to hang out with family or friends and just barbeque and have fun.  Luckily, we had this awesome night at my Aunt's house.  What started out to be a late celebration for my Mom's birthday, turned into an awesome fun night.  It's one of my favorite memories from 2011, so I knew I had to document it.

I created this 2-page layout for a Chinese Whispers Challenge on Club CK.  Now, I will admit, and some friends might know, I struggle with 12x12 layouts.  I find there to be so much open space to fill and since I mostly scrap with 4x6 photos, it's really hard to fit exactly what I want on the pages.  This layout, however, I am super happy with.  I was determined not to get stressed, and just let it flow.  I'm so happy that I challenged myself to scrapbook a summer memory in honor of it being summer.  I truly am so so proud!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

PS: I will update with the "products used" later.  Unfortunately, a storm hit us a little hard and we are taking temporary shelter at Alex's parents' house.  Hope to be home tomorrow.
