scrapbooking convention a couple weeks ago I have been inspired to start working on our wedding scrapbook again. Our one year anniversary is coming up in two weeks! I really hadn't liked the second page I did for the bridal shower - I didn't feel like it went well with the first page I designed for it which is I think what put me off scrapbooking for a while.
I decided to move past that one for now until I got some inspiration for it and move on to my bachelor/bachelorette party page. The inspiration for this one started from the combination of papers and colors. I was thinking about the pictures we took that night and realized I wanted to bring in the pinks, purples and greens from the girls shirts and combine it with the more muted colors the boys were wearing. In my head, I thought there shirts were black, but they were actually grey. Oh well, close enough. I found the zebra paper first and then the pink polka dot paper, which is one of my favorites. I knew the hot green washi tape would perfectly complement the design.
I wanted to do something a bit different with the journaling on this page so I decided to do it in circles instead of squares like I often do. I then started playing around with the design of it and came to love the idea of including all the random multi colored circles at various spots around the page.
I was also really excited to have a chance to use the jewel sheets I got from the scrapbooking convention. I thought they added a bit of bling to the page. I thought I had them in pink but I pretty much had every color but pink. The washi tape underneath them I also bought from the scrapbooking convention. I bought a set of five black and white tapes that I absolutely love!
