My Dress - Maggie Holmes Collection

It has been awhile since I have blogged mainly because it has been a chore to get our house ready to list and then keep it clean. We luckily have had some showings this week and more tomorrow so keeping my fingers crossed.

Well, today I am sharing a layout I made with the Maggie Holmes Collection for Crate Paper. I really love this collection but did not feel I had a lot of use for it since I have two boys. However, I ended up deciding to use it to scrap my wedding photos. Scrapping wedding photos seems like such a "big" moment to scrap - I really was never sure how I would do it. Then I listened to THIS Paperclipping Roundtable episode that got me thinking. I decided that I might as well scrap my wedding pictures like I like to scrap because it is for me anyways. I got all my proofs in 4x6, and I have a high resolution CD so really I can reprint picture if I don't like how a layout turns out or decide later I want something different. Anyways, here is my first (and unfortunately, only) layout I have made of my wedding 1/2 years ago...

As far as the journaling goes, I tried to think about what I would like to now know about my mom or grandmother's wedding dress. I plan to add some more journaling about how special it was for my mom to be with me - probably with a picture of me actually in the dress...

(Also, my photographer was Jamie Schramm in Nashville, TN. I am not sure she is still doing photography as I can no longer access her website but thought I would still give her credit just in case :) .)

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a good week!
