I decided to work with a quote when I did my layout using the sketch from the October challenge over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.  

Here is the great sketch by Bev Code that I used - 

I was originally planning on working on a layout about a journey and chose this quote from a batch I found about journeys.

'No man ever steps in the same ricer twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.'  Heraclitus

and here is my layout - 

Photos are of my son Thomas just after opening day of fishing season this past April.

It's getting late but I wanted to share 2 layouts that I have just recently completed.  

The first uses photos from our trip to Virgina back in October 2006 when we went to the Battle of Yorktown. While there we were able to create panels for the America's Heritage Flag, which is one of the largest handmade American flags ever seen.  It was unfurled in May 2007 at the America's 400th Anniversary weekend.

My next layout uses a sketch and color combo from Let's Get Sketchy.  Sadly I am too late to enter it in either of those challenges.  

and my layout -


I am going to share these layouts with Robin's Scrap Nest and Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes challenge #152, and in Soul Scrappers challenge ATW22 for a layout about an attraction in your home town.

Hope that you have enjoyed seeing our little part in making history and some nature photos from White Clay Creek State Park.

Sweet dreams!

And here is the flip side of the book!

Exchanging of rings and now presenting 
Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Roteman - 

The first dance and cutting the cake...

The Roteman Family and Cindy's beautiful bouquet-

I am sharing the rest again with Robin's Scrap Nest and Word Art Wednesday Anything goes Challenge #151.


This is an album I made for my step nephew and his bride of their wedding day.  I finally sent it to them as they celebrated their first anniversary.  I forgot to take photos or to blog it but Cindy posted the photos on Facebook so I wanted to share them here.  I struggle with anything smaller than 12x12 and this was probably about 5"x7" mini accordian book.  I remember struggling with the page edges so I dipped them in glue and gold glitter.  

Here we go - 

The Cover-

I had picked out a lot of different wedding embellishments and you will see several quotes throughout.  The photo of them is from the invitation.

This is the wedding party making their entrance.  The photo on the right includes my Step Brother Jeff who was the best man and the cute little tot with him and the Maid of Honor is Cindy & Tim's cute little son Elijah.

The flower girls are Tim's niece Kaitlyn and Cindy's daughter Nicole.  And finally - here comes the beautiful Bride with her Dad.

On the left is a copy of the cover of their ceremony program and on the right a photo saying their vows.

Here are the rings!

These pages were the front side of the book...Hopefully she will share the flip side so I can show you the rest!  Watch for another post coming soon!

I have shared these with Robin's Scrap Nest and I am also posting to Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes challenge #151.

Thanks for checking out my memories of this beautiful day!
