Getting creative....

Well the creative time has been a little thin of late with needing to bring a lot of work home to get through it, however I did escape and spent a decent part of 12 hours scrapping at Scraploot on Saturday. I got super productive and made my christmas cards, so I was stoked at getting through the fiddly process of it and knocking it over, as the next few weeks are going to be hectic! I even managed to get almost 2 LO's complete as well. Just as I was about to hit the picture button to upload, I just realised that I haven't actually taken photos yet, so you will have to wait for those sorry! I do however have a few other pages and an album I can share with you though....

To start with, a layout featuring the WOW School Days title....

And a few close ups for good measure....
And an album I've been working on for a while.... a lovely WOW mdf album.... When it first arrived, I immediately knew I wanted to capture the weddings from this year in it. We've had plenty of them, so it wasn't hard to find pics!

This one features a WOW chipboard title and garden chair.
I've kept the album in date order. We started off the year with Emily & Ryan's wedding at the Opera House. I have covered the WOW candleabra in pink glitter to fit with the pink glitzy theme of the wedding.

Next up was James & Nicole's big day. James is my husband's cousin and we headed down to Melbourne for this one. It was a lovely day and bitter sweet at the same time, as we had laid Ben's grandfather to rest the week earlier. It was lovely to see the family relax and unwind after a tense few weeks. A very emotional wedding! I have used a WOW corner flourish and part of the back of the frame from the next page.

Then just before we set off on our holiday, we celebrated Jason & Sue's wedding. Another emotional one! Jason is my brother's best friend and his family are long time family friends, so it was like watching another little brother getting married. My brother was the best man and it was so much fun. I have used a WOW mini chippie frame and was able to capture a few extra pics in it.
Only a few weeks ago, we celebrated the wedding of our very good friends, Andrew & Emma. Seems the emotion kept growing at each wedding we went to. The scenic Whale Beach was a beautiful backdrop. We all travelled together earlier in the year and were thrilled to be able to be there with them when they set off to get their wedding rings from Tiffany's in New York. We caught up with them just as the sales guy was handing over the beautifully wrapped boxes! This is the beautiful moment....
The most recent wedding was Manda & Dean's. Manda's mum and my mum have been friends for what seems like forever! Manda's beautiful mum Vicki was my mum's bridesmaid at her wedding! There is a little pic of them in the bottom corner, it's their trademark photo! A very emotional ceremony and reception speeches. Mum was in tears before the ceremony even started, god love her! It was a beautiful day and so much fun, the happy couple did not stop laughing and smiling from the word go, it was beautiful to see. I've used the WOW lace doily with this page.
And last up is ready to go as the wedding isn't until November. I was able to match the colours with the invite, so I can be super organised! Adam is a mate of Ben's from his ten pin bowling team. This one features the WOW chipboard circles and padlock.

And that's about it on the creative front for tonight.... back to finish off some more work before heading to bed.

Night all and until next time, happy scrapping! Don't forget to head over to the WOW Blog for more creative inspiration and to stock up on your scrapping supplies, head over to the new Scraploot website!
