My First Scrapbook Is My Little Sister's Wedding!

27 July 2010 - 03:17 PM

Arg! Talk about taking on too much! I'm not sure this is the right place to ask this, but here it goes.. My little sister, Lori, got married a couple of years ago and her photographer was terrible. And I really mean it, terrible.. The photographers photos are not much of a better quality than the amateur candid photos that Lori has. I have decided to undertake a huge project and see if I can make a scrapbook out of what good pictures we do have for her. I'll probably do them in mostly black and white to help fix the lighting and color issues that I have. The only problem is that I've only ever done 1 paper scrapbook in my life for my then boyfriend (now husband!) and it wasn't very impressive. I believe his exact words were "I love it because you made it for me... but it'll be better next time." I've had MUCH better luck scrapbooking a couple of pages digitally (aka, my husband likes them), but I've run into a snag. You all have such great layouts for single pages and it's so neat to get ideas from you, but how do you take all your ideas and make the scrapbook flow and match the other pages? Or, does it matter if they don't really match each other? I thought about starting with base colors - her wedding colors light pink, mint green, and brown - and try to unify it that way, but the colors are turning out to be really boring.. I really want this to look nice and would appreciate any advice you can give. Where should I start?

My 5 Year Old Niece

This is as described by my twin sister, Christina, about her daughter Heidi:

Christina gets Avon books every now and then from one of her friends. Apparently Heidi really liked some of the sparkly flip flops in the magazine because Christina caught her with the magazine on the floor and her foot on top of the picture of the flip flops. "Heidi, what are you doing??" "I was trying to see if they fit, mommy!"
