Today we have a sketch challenge for you today at TGF. We are using Angie's fabulous sketch. Make sure to hop over to the fabulous Design Teams blogs and give them some love. You have until next Thursday to join in this challenge and be in the running for the prize.

This page is 7+ years in the making. I have a really sad story to share.... Our photographer did not show up to our wedding so we only have snap shots from family and friends. For the longest time I couldn't even look at the pictures because it upset me so much. I still feel sad when I think of it, but time has "healed that wound" so to speak. I've scrapbooked a few of these pictures now and will have a few pictures of our special day. I just remind myself of what a great man I married that day and it make me feel better.

Stamp & Create's
challenge is to use Ribbon (and items sold in store TGF) Hope you will join us for this wonderful sketch challenge.

Hi Jacilynn,

Oeh, I like this page, love the butterflies on it, because that's what you feel of course, on a day like that! But, yes, that's sad... your photographer didn't show up! How can he!!But when you set yourself to do the snapshots that you do have, to make beautiful pages like this and put them together in a book, you will have the most original wedding book ever!! Then you can also let friends and family write something on the pages to let them tell their memories of the day (I'm sure they will want to!) and you'll have a book of beautiful memories and hopefully soon forget the sad memories about the day! Most important is how you felt and how happy you are now!!!
Thank you for also becoming my follower!
A big hug to you!
Wendy

Hi Jacilynn,
This is so beautiful and very special.
How sad that your photographer did not show for your wedding, at least you have the snapshots from your friends and family and of course your memories which no-one can take away.
Hugs, Clare x

What a great photo of you and your dh!!! I love it! I can't believe your stupid photographer didn't show up! Punk butt! LOL! Wish I knew you then, I would have taken your photograph! Sorry to hear that but you're right, you got a good man and that's all that matters! You should renew your vows! LOL! OK, you may/may not kick me for that! LOL! Tryin' to put some humor in it. Anyhow, this photo of you guys is super cute!!!! Great take on the LO!!! So Sweet!

OH bummer.. I hope you told that photographer off!!.. My wedding was nearly 23 years ago and most of it was just family taking photo's.. I was lucky that my uncle dabbled in photography so he took 300 photo's of my day. Not great ones but at least I have some. Love this layout using the sketch.. great with the butterflies . Xx

I'm sure the sweet memories of your wedding day is something that no one can take away from you, not even by the photographer who didn't show up. I think that the picture you scrapped here is absolutely precious!
