A Friends Special Day

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!  We here in Texas are going through the HOTTEST summer we have had in a long time!  So, in order to keep cool I stay in doors most of the time, ha!  Today I started my day really early, had some coffee, played some Words With Friends then started doing my weekend chores.  Then once I got our dinner going in the crockpot I went into my studio to create the page I am sharing with you today.

I have some friends who shared their special day with us on and so wanted to document it on this great paper "Posh" by Teresa Collins.  Want to know a secret?!  I have been hoarding this paper and finally decided I needed to create with it!  Love how it turned out and it does have journaling to it, but in true Nancy form it is hidden.

You can click on all photos to see them in a larger size.

Here is the page, it's simple not too much going on and I like how it turned out except for one thing.  Now that I have it photographed and cropped that space between the family photo and the "m" piece is a bit odd to me.  I think I should have centered the family photo a bit better so I may have to add a little something to that spot?  What do you think?

Above you can see where I have pulled out the journaling card and highlighted it for you.  It is a folded card and it's inside that card that I have written down my thoughts about their special day.  I simply used some stampin' up dimensional's to pop up the photo piece.  I was sure to put dimensional's in just the right spot. By doing that its stop my journaling card where so it would allow for it to peek out.

In the photo above I wanted to share with you a little info on the "M" piece, you see that isn't the monogram for the family's last name.  Nope, it is the first letter of ALL their names!  YEP! How cool is that!  And another secret, I was a total ditz and didn't catch on to that until they got married, ha!

My friends decided to do things a little backwards but I think it worked out just right!  They first got together, then bought a house then had two beautiful boys to fill it.  Then, after being together for 10 years they decided to make it official and had a beautiful wedding on 10.10.10!  How cool is that!

Well, thanks for stopping in and hope you are staying cool and having a great weekend!
