When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

NCM Project # 14 - 20: Wedding Scrapbook

Today is my birthday but not really up to celebrating it.  DH being away really depresses me.  Anyways, my girlfriend Lia treat us to dinner and I'm glad that we went out.  It made the rest of my day alot better.  She told me that she finally brought the wedding guestbook to her friend last night.  She was happy when she saw it and Lia told me that she almost cried when she saw the guestbook.  I felt really good about it.  Well it always feels good when you made somebody happy, right!?

Since today is my birthday, I decided to take a day off from crafting.  Yeah, I maybe MIA for the last couple weeks but rest assured I'm home and doing what I loved best - crafting.  My recent project is for my dear girlfriend Lia again and I am making a wedding scrapbook for her friend Cynthia.  She's the same bride who got the wedding guestbook.  Anways, just want to you share with the first 7 pages of scrapbook and hope y'all like it.

BTW, one LO will be entered as one entry for NCM project.  Hope I can get done with the rest of the pages before March ends.

First Page - Wedding Book poem
 Second Page - The Beginning, which is a short story of how the couple met and build their relationship.
 Journaling was inserted and can be pulled out using the satin ribbon.
Third Page - The Proposal
Journaling for this page was adhered on the actual LO.
Love this 3-D engagement ring embellishment from Jolee's.
Fourth Page - Engagement 1
I used rub-ons and 3-D stickers for embellishment.
Fifth Page - Engagement 2
Again, journaling block was inserted behind the picture mat.
Sixth Page - Planning of the Wedding
Cut the die-cuts using Cricut E.
Again, I used Jolees for emebllishment for the page.
Seventh Page - The Bridal Shower

Hope I'll be able to get done with this project before the end of the month.  Please know that I really appreciate your participation in the NCM challenge.  I will be leaving comments on your projects soon.  Take care ladies...

Until next project!
