Good day! Well, I had mentioned in my last post that I would let you in on the surprise that my girlfriends and I did for one of our friends on the weekend.

Our girlfriend, Stephanie Tierney, is getting married on World Card Making Day (October 2nd) and we decided to make her an 8x8 album for her Bridal Shower memories. Under each layout above is the friend's name who designed that page for her.

Her wedding colours are going to be brown and orange to fit the Fall season. Since her wedding scrapbook will probably be done in her wedding colours, we decided to make the bridal shower album with a purple theme because that is her favourite colour.

My girlfriends and I get together as often as we can to scrapbook. Lately, we have been renting the Oliver Road Community Centre's downstairs hall to accommodate us. We decided to spice up this gathering by presenting Stephanie with her album and throwing in a few decorations to spruce up the event.

The surprise went off without a hitch and it was a huge success.

On my 2 page layout, my "background" paper is actually fabric and I used the same fabric to make my own ribbon and tie across the bottom of the page. I used a matching Core'dinations cardstock for the photo mats; which I distressed with my new Zutter Distrezz-it-All electronic distressor. The ribbon is from Stampin' Up, the buttons & embroidery floss are from my stash and I used the Circle Nestabilities die-cuts for my round journal box.

For the last page of the album, Showered with Love, I used an old All My Memories paper line from my personal stash. I cut the umbrella (A Child's Year) & the lettering (Alphalicious) out with my Cricut machine and the upside down hearts with the EK Success small folk heart punch.

In each heart are the names of Stephanie's friends who contributed to the album. We will be placing a group shot of us on this page with my daughter's photo off to the side. The photo isn't the greatest because I could only shoot with my flash on because it had gotten late by the time I had realized that I hadn't shot this page.

For Amy's page, she used patterned papers from the Glitter Stack by Die Cuts With a View, Core'dinations cardstock, Prima Marketing flowers that she glimmer misted with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and Prima Marketing Rhinestones. This was her first time using glimmer mist and she did a fantastic job!

Well, that is all for now. It has been raining since 2:45 p.m. today. So, I thought it was appropriate to post the Bridal Shower layouts on this rainy day. Enjoy!
