White Weddings

Yes, it's June, and that time of year.   Love is in the air and CYDI is celebrating with a fun challenge called "White Weddings".   The definition of "white weddings" for the challenge is this:

"So when I think of June I think of weddings. And weddings make me think of white, love, and cake. Oh and you can't have a wedding without a pop of color and no, black doesn't count, because it's totally expected.

So these are the neutral colors that won't count towards your pop of color: black, brown, navy."

I was married three years ago to my high school sweetheart and love of my life, Jeff.  We weren't married 35 years ago, and it's kinda a long story, but suffice to say we found each other again through Facebook!!  I'm still scrapping some of the wedding photos, so this was a good opportunity to put two of my favorites together on one page.

In this layout I used Nice Day Cafe paper, and lest you think I'm over Grunge Neutrals, I also used one of the white papers in that pack (for grunging up the doily)!

The Astoria Assassin

Hi!  Today's challenge at Can You Digi It? is "Yellow".  Well, yellow is not my favorite color, though I agree it does have its place at times!  So I decided to use a shade of yellow -- sepia -- in this layout.  I've been getting into family history, and chose to focus on my great grand-uncle.  I don't have too many pictures of him, but fortunately there are several floating around the internet because he was a light-heavyweight boxing champ back in the 1920's!

You are going to think I'm stuck on Grunge Neutrals, and I guess I am.  I used some of the papers in that pack here in this LO.  I'm just finding them so versatile!!

Hope you find some time to craft today, and be sure to check out the blog challenge and post your submission!
