Some of the wedding pages

I'm still working on these. I wish i could scrapbook all day but thats not the way this Suzy's life goes. (especially when everyone
is still on vacation and are around every day. I keep reminding myself Monday is just around the corner)
I will admit to going a little crazy with embellishments which is something i don't ever do. I used my Martha hydrangea punch to create vellum flowers and a bunch of MME Bohemia clear gems (then i ran out. yeah i had to buy some more gems. i ended up with some Jewelry & Craft brand ones from Michaels). As I said i'm not normally one to put lots of shtuff on my pages but in this case - well i said what the heck. My wedding dress was very classic - princess-like really. But what made it really gorgeous was all these clear sequins sewn into the lace on top. I still remember my Aunt saying to me she thought i was wearing a diamonds around my wrist. It wasn't diamonds - it was my dress. It was very understated I assure you - i'm just not a sparkly kinda girl but that dress - i still remember finding it and saying now THAT'S my dress.
Oh i should also remind you these pictures were proofs we bought - not the best photos that were put into the final photographers album. But i still love these pictures.
I don't plan to spend this much time on the rest of the pages but who knows. Once you get started sometimes these projects take on a life of their own. And i know something else - i like the pages and i don't care if anyone but me and my family do! ha! (believe me this is brave Suzy talk but i'm thrilled that I can honestly say it doesnt matter to me what anyone else thinks)
ok i need to get moving. I've already got a few more pages setup to glue down. I'm gonna do that while i still have a little free time left to myself.

I love your pages. I have been checking your blogs a few times each day hoping you would post some more of your projects you accomplished while the rest of the family did beach. The hydrangea punch with vellum is elegant. A perfect touch! You right-brain people amaze me with how easily you create such beauty. Oh! and I love the dp on your grotto pages too :)

Aw, what a pretty bride!!! Love those pages Tracy, they are beautiful, the vellum flowers look great.

Did you really have to post a link to Martha Stewart - now I think I NEED that punch, and perhaps a few other bits and pieces ....

Well, I certainly love these pages. I just wish I could see them better. Believe me, though, I KNOW FOR SURE that Suzy is not about to bother with scanning and stitching those 12x12 pages....fuggedaboudit! LOL.
