Scrapbook layouts:A perfect memory, Us & Fulfillment

Good afternoon,

I hope everybody is enjoying their weekend. I know i am! I have a cup of tea, heating is on and i am crafting away. What more do you want, right? My hubby is away this week and i have the house to myself, meaning no cleaning and no cooking ( just a little bit) just crafting. Well i am enjoying it very much. After making over 40 valentine's card and valentine's gifts i thought it was time for something else so i started to make some scrapbook pages.

The color room #94 "a perfect memory"

This was the color pallet and i was not feeling it at all. It was a big struggle for me and that's why i was too late with entering it. But i still wanted to share it with you because i love the little boy that is in the picture.
This is my little boyfriend called Roan, he is 2 years old. He is very wise, gorgeous and talks a lot. There are 2 things that he always takes with him "doeki & beesie". Although he is only two he is quit the traveler, i cant remember where this picture was taken Mallorca? Los Angeles? on a cruise ship?  He likes to call me and thank god for modern technology we use an "App"on our phone so we can also see each other. 

CSI Case file # 03 "Fulfillment"

Evidence Used: Tags, Sheer ribbon, doily print and circular elements. 
The little on in the picture is me in my younger years. Yes i am aware that i looked like a little boy! I am getting more in to the journaling part of the challenges, i added some words on the little round tags and all these words come back on my journaling on the hidden tag behind the doily:

When you are young and innocent, the smallest things in life can satisfy you…Over the years that changes as you have your own goals, dreams and expectations.The beauty of life is that when you get older those small things in life come back again and the only thing that matters is that you and your loved ones are happy ,healthy and filled with laughter!

The Color room #95 "us"

I had a good feeling with this palette, i love red and black so i got started yesterday....... I wanted to make a clean and simple page but is was not as simple as i thought. I took a white blank scrapbook page and destroyed two after that. I brought my husband to the airport at 4:30am and stayed awake until 2:30am the next morning because i wanted to finish this page. I tried it with gesso, fabric, misting nothing worked...eventually this was the ending result and i am quit happy with it. 

Both pictures are from our wedding, it's a before and after picture. Before because i was getting dressed by my friend jennifer and After in the hotel, our wedding clothes were off. 

Also on this page there is a hidden journaling tag. I attached it to the layout with a brad so when it is in an album you can't see it, i did not want to put it on to the page as i wanted to keep it as blank as possible. 

On the tag:
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" But when a woman gets married she ones to be the prettiest one of the day. My friend jennifer helped me get dressed on my wedding day. We had a great day, it was beautiful and nice to be a princess for one day but it was really really hot. (40 Celsius)  At the end of the day the only think i wanted was to rip off my dress. Being a beauty has its price!

I hope you enjoyed my long post for today. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
