Paper Wing's April Blog Hop



I did this scrapbook page a while ago. I also made a card to go with it. I was intending to send it to The Angel Company for a contest..but I never got it into the mailbox! When I saw the April Blog Hop theme was weddings I decided I would share the layout with everyone! I will re-post the picture (hopefully it will come out better) tomorrow....I going to try to take it outside in the daytime with the nature light.


Making this page was so much fun! I enjoyed looking through my parent's wedding pictures to find the picture that I wanted to showcase. I also enjoyed seeing my parents and their wedding party. Most of my parent's wedding party were close family friends and we grew up knowing them all. The picture brings back many special memories we shared with them.


This picture also includes a picture of my Uncle Eddie (last man on the right) who passed away before any of my parent's children were born. I enjoy seeing pictures of my uncle and remembering all the wonderful stories that my grandmother shared with me about my father and his little brother.


When I scrap a page, I always enjoy the memories that are connected to the images that I am working with. It is funny, I seem to have tears in my eyes sometimes when I scrap! Even with the tears in my eyes I love scrapbooking! I always tell people in order to have those tears you have to have wonderful memories!! I hope that I have shared some of my memories with others and hopefully will open one of my scrapbooks someday and be able to share stories about my family and friends with some of our children's children!


All paper and images used were from The Angel Company. The papers were some of the free down loads from The Angel Company. The Angel company offers two different sets of free black and white paper which can be downloaded they are Black and White and More Black and White.


Hop over to my fellow Angel's blogs and see there creations for the April Blog Hop! Check them out....Rita K., Chelsea, Shirley, Teresa and Rita W.
