Here's a new layout I made using a picture I took at Loose Park in Kansas City, MO. I used an overlay from Delicious Scraps and made the digital paper myself. The flowers are from Mary Ann Wise Delightful Felt Flowers Kit found at Design House Digital. The Spring circle is from Carina Gardner Spring Stamps. The font is Scriptina and Sylfaen.

Our 1 Year Wedding Anniversary was Oct. 17, 2010! Hard to believe one year came and went so quickly! I loved planning our wedding and getting married. It was so much fun and I was able to use all of my creative abilities.  Our first year of marriage was good and not too exciting, which was sort of nice.

We decided to keep this year's anniversary simple. We were very tired. So it consisted of going to mass at the church we got married at, Holy Rosary, in Kansas City, MO. It was nice to spend the morning together. That evening we made dinner together... spaghetti and garlic bread..fancy I know. We also had some champagne and tasted our top tier cake from 1 year ago. Surprisingly, the cake tasted decent but it just grosses me out eating something that is a year old! Erik also gave me some pretty roses.Here are a few pictures from our wedding anniversary!

So I had taken a long vacation from digital scrapbooking because of my new photography business, but today I started missing it and did two new layouts with some old pictures. The first one is a layout using pictures from our honeymoon to Chichen Itza. It was a super hot day but a really cool experience seeing the ancient pyramids in Mexico.  And look how skinny I was just a year or so ago... ahh what marriage does to you :)

This layout is really simple. I need to get back into the scrapping swing of things. I used a paper from my Summertime Sweets Kit which can be found here in my Etsy shop. The leaves are from the Delicious Scraps Fresh kit. The font is Moksha and Vrinda.

This second layout uses pictures from New Years Eve with my hubby last year. I tried to use the triangle design principle that my sister-in-law talks about in her blog here. More information on design principles can be found here. All of the elements are from Delicious Scraps Fresh Kit and the font is Palace Script MT.

Hopefully, I will get back to scrapping more often now!
