"I Do" Scrapbook layout; Riley Family est. 1977.

Hi everyone, I hope you're staying warm this cold Saturday.  This is the coldest it's been here in south central Texas for a looooong time.  This is the second day in a row that I have had to chip ice out of the donkey tank and throw it out.  Yesterday I had to do it 4 times, even though I threw all of the ice out of the tank it would freeze again.  Man, I don't see how you guys up north do it with your animals.  Anyway, stay warm!!!
Here's a layout I did of me and my dear sweet husband...  and it also qualifies for a few challenges...  I've just started combining challenges and it's so much fun, but you know, that's  a challenge in itself. lol  The challenges I did on this layout are:
Creative Card Crew ~ Distressing
Quixotic ~ Hot Chocolate
If The Shoe Fits Scrap It ~ Chipboard
Frosted Designs ~ Distressing Inks
Simon Says Stamp Challenge ~ Hot Chocolate
A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ Hearts
Paper Take Weekly ~ New Beginnings
Practical Scrappers ~ Sketch & Buttons
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays ~ Celebration
Scrap and Stamp Saturdays ~ Family and use at least one Stamp

Wow 10 challenges, that's a first for me...  Hope you like my layout!  Here's what I used:
SU Chocolate Chip CS
DCWV Once Upon a Time Stack DP
Tim Holtz Distress Inks ~ Walnut Stain
Tim Holtz Distress Inks ~ Tea Dye
SU Wedding Sweet Stamp Set
Thickers ~ Jewelry Box Chipboard Letters
Heart Doilies
Heart Stick Pin
Beaded Lace Ribbon
Thank you so much for dropping in and have a wonderful weekend!
Please drop back by anytime!
Hugs :o)
Pin It!
