Finally making some time for us....My First Wedding Scrapbook Page : )

I know I can't be the only one who gets caught up in everything else in life and never makes time for us.  It has been years in the making in my mind, but I have FINALLY decided to take a slow start into making a wedding scrapbook for my own wedding.  I have made the first page, and wanted to see how well I liked it to see whether I wanted me to be the one to contintue on making the pages.   I have decided that for a first try, that I think I like it fine and hope that I will improve as time goes on.  I think at the very least, I have captured the style that I was hoping for.  I just hope that I can do the entire book justice, as this is one that I hope to treasure for many years to come.  I have 4 more books that I would like to create to treasure for many years.....one for each of my children.  My own treasures in this life!!  I hope that you all have found time to create some things like this for your families.  We deserve to enjoy the rewards of our crafting as much as anyone else does, right?

Thank you for sharing this with me, and I hope that you enjoy and are inspired to create something special for yourself and your family.   Have a beautiful day!

Oh Carolyn if this is just the beginning I can't wait to see more! I love, love, love the front, especially the butterflies in flight! BTW, I love the 1st song on your playlist, one of my favs....reminds me of Soph every time I hear it.

Hope you're having a wonderful summer so far:)
