First Dance

Back in the day when I got married, there were no iPhones or Blackberries to take videos of our joyous celebration.....but we had a dear family friend who brought his cassette player to the reception and recorded the majority of the festivities.  Thirty years later that cassette still plays and a co-worker actually took that cassette recording and transferred it to a CD for me.........Anyways the point of this story is that because of that recording, I was able to listen to the song that played for our first dance.  It was George Jones and the song was "Walk Through this World With Me."  With the aid of the internet, I printed the lyrics to the song on parchment paper, tore the edges and finished the page off with some wedding stickers.  Since that day, I had lost my father and when I listened to the CD, I still get the opportunity to hear his voice!  Caught me off guard the first time I heard it. (I will always miss him).  I hope you like this layout!

Holyrood Castle, Edinburgh, Scotland

On a high school band trip to Edinburgh, Scotland, we visited Holyrood Castle.  With this layout, I took one of the photos of the castle, and lightened it and printed it out as background paper on a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock.  I then printed out smaller photos from this adventure to complete the layout. 

High School Orchestra Concert

This is a two-page layout from my daughter's concert.  I took the sheet music from the concert, copied it on parchment paper, and tore it diagonally to use on each page of the layout.  I finished it off with the program and a couple of photos.  Hope you enjoy and leave comments!

My daughter was in the high school marching band (clarinet) and I came up with this layout to display some of the hundreds of photos that I have.  The pictures in whole were hard to see, but when cut into smaller cubes, they were easier to manage.  For the home coming football games the students would have a police escorted parade thru town so that all the residents could show their support.
