Preparation... the key, or so I've been told! 

Tonight's layout is another of the photos of my SIL's wedding photo's.  I think her wedding proved the point, she knew exactly what she wanted and what she didn't, what was important (their day, and their commitment to each other) and what wasn't (that the snow meant that a few guests couldn't make it), and the day was planed without being contrite or false.

 That said I was the one on the receiving end of the "I think I need a wrap, can you make one?" phone call at wedding day -36 hours, so maybe even the best laid plans are open to last minute adjustment - although I think if Id have said "no" it would have been fine, I just didn't dare and did as I was told :-)

I must credit the photographer Ken Peachey and his daughter for the stunning images, they have been an absolute joy to do layouts with :-)

Ken's daughter was with Nikki and I as we got ready, while Ken was with her husband and his family. 

Nothing was forced, we hardly noticed they were there (even when this photo was taken with her standing on a chair!) and it was lovely getting ready with an unbiased set of eyes offering encouragement!  My SIL and BIL chose a package that got them every image that was good enough of their day on disc, that they were free to copy and distribute as they wished - over 12 hours of photos, nearly 700 photos in all, not a moment was missed - much better than the standard package normally on offer, and although I don't know exactly how much it cost, I don't think it was much more than the standard 30 pics in an album cost of anyone else... Ken has put many of the images through photoshop (I assume) too, turning some black and white, sepia or cropping them to their best advantage as well as including the original image.  I can wholeheartedly recommend them if you know anyone looking for a wedding photographer in the South East.

Anyway, onto this layout...

This picture is of me, my HB and his sister in the last few minutes before the wedding, I'm still sorting out her dress, but I love the look that has been captured between my HB and his sister, :)

This LO was done in the my regular class at Scrapbook Sisters.  As usual my memory escapes me and I can't recall the name or manufacturer of the papers!!

 The black card stock is Bazzill and has been lifted off the paper with foam pads.  The stamp is Everyday Alphabet by Heidi Grace, and the heart border punch is by Fiskars.  Circle and circle scroll punch are from Woodware.

The scroll was also cut on the Cricut. and the flowers are varying sizes of retro flower punch by EK Success, edged with Charcoal chalk eye, with Black Diamond Stickles in the centre of each.

Hope you like this one as much as I do

Thanks for looking
