Easter Page and a Wedding photo.....

First and foremost, my mom's wedding was on Saturday. I know many of you are probably sick of hearing me talk about this but just skip this part if so..... My dad passed away of cancer in Sept. of 2000. Since then my mom has been alone. She met Ron, her husband, at a dance that she had been attending with some of her older girlfriends who were also widowers. Anyway, true love blossomed and they dated over a year and finally tied the knot on the 4th. Both were glowing and you could feel the love in that little church. I am so happy for my mom and Ron to have a second chance at love and to be able to feel those voids in their lives and in their hearts. Here is an unaltered photo I took before the ceremony. When we get the professional photos I will post a few of those as well so you can see the bride and groom.



My Mom, waiting for the wedding to start. Isn't she so pretty ?


Again, waiting for the wedding to start (L-R) my sister Kim, my sister Peggy, Maid of Honor, my mom, and me


This is a page that Tammi did for an Easter Layout and offered to allow me to use it for a class. I absolutely love the page, the way she wove the ribbon through the scalloped edge of the Die Cut paper is unique.


This is my page. I had to change Tammi's to a 2-page layout for a class I am teaching on Thursday so this is the end result. Hope everyone likes it. It is from Making Memories Flower Patch line. It also incorporates Papertrey Inks New Leaf paper for photo backgrounds and the grass and egg die cut from Quikutz. The glitter paper used for the eggs is from DCWV.

Thanks for stopping by Precious Scraps, Bev
