...and they lived Happily Ever After (2 Pager)

Hello everyone!!  Doesn't the weekend just fly by??  It sure does for me, especially when I'm scrapping..  The only person that came over this weekend was our son and he stayed out at the shop and helped his dad, so I was pretty much on my own!!! :o)  Next week all of the family, My husband and I, our son and his wife and 2 little ones, our daughter and her husband are all going on a little "family" vacation and I can't wait.  It's actually our first one and I know we are going to have a blast!!  So I guess they were letting me "rest up" this weekend!! lol...  Anyway, since I was on my own I decided to do a few of the challenges out there in blogland...   The first one I remembered was The Pink Elephant Scrapbook challenge, which was to make your own  paper flowers.  :o(   I knew that one would really be a challenge for me, and then the new challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches came up on Friday, and we were given the sketch, BUT, it was a 2 pager!!  Another challenge for me since I don't do many of those....  So I knew I was going to combine these two challenges for sure, Now I just had to find the right photos for it..  And I always say, when in doubt go to the "Wedding drawer".  I can always find something in there and I do need to get them scrapped..  So, here are three (3) photos from Amanda's Wedding Reception.  Actually the Reception is over and they are leaving and if you look closely you can see them walking through all of the bubbles.
I did follow the sketch for the most part, but I still wandered just a little.  But, hey, that's okay..  And I am very proud of myself for making all of the flowers on both pages!!!!  I can see now why you just make the little ones... The 2 large ones really stand up pretty high and I'm not for sure I can get them in the sleeves...  Oh well, live and learn.. I still like 'em...  And I hope you like 'em as well...  I really wanted to add some little flower buds, but, just don't know if I could have made them...  After I get this posted, I may go back and put some little buds in with the blooms.. (Please don't tell on me)!!!! :o)
