The week that went in the blink of an eye. I’m going to be honest, I don’t remember much of this week. It was the week before our wedding reception. I had one of the worst toothaches I have ever had. We also had my god daughter early in the week and CJ’s family descended on us from Perth, towards the end of the week. If that was not enough, this layout is packed with memorabilia and detail. I spent hours this week making 50 meters of paper garland and other decorations for our reception. I could not part with it after all was said and done, so I added a piece to my spread. Other memorabilia included this week can be found in the pocket on the title card. It’s a phone number a guy slipped me while we were waiting in a long line. I’d never dream of calling him but I still found it very flattering. I don’t think I’d been asked out in a very long time. There is also a tag from the stamps I bought from Kelly Purkey’s store the week she closed it. I love this ‘quote of the day’ card. It sums up perfectly the character of both Chris and Demi. They both have a wickedly dark sense of humour. Must run in the family. This week also had an insert: The hand stitched titles are a particular favourite of mine. It was accomplished by typing up a template in word and using it as a stencil, much the same as you would an Amy Tangerine stencil.
While there can be no doubt this is a departure from my normal style, I enjoyed pushing myself to be less colour coordinated.
