Good Morning gals..
Been feeling a bit under the weather this week.. Actually, I've been hungover from celebrating my cousins 40th Birthday last Saturday, I must be getting too old to party...LOL, but I still really wanted to work on a layout or two..
Sandi Clarkson at Soft Side of Sandi does these amazing heritage layouts and I really really really wanted to try one.. So, here is my first attemptt.. These photos are of my grandparents wedding day back in 1967.. my grandfather is actually my moms step-dad, my mom was about 21yrs old when her mom re-married..
My grandmothers favorite color was soft pink, so I wanted to incorporate that into the layout, but without over drowning it in pink..just a little accent here and there... The photo on the bottom of the layout is not of my grandparents, just an image I had in my stash..
Here are some close ups and all of the details to making this layout..
Here is a close up of the happy couple.. My mom actually took these photos, so thats why she's not in them..LOL
My aunt (my dads sister) is standing on my grandmothers side.

Here is my journaling box.. I found that cute quote on scrapbook.com
