I decided there was no way to try and fit the wedding into a normal weekly spread in my Project Life album. SO many hilarious photos popped up on Facebook and it would have been wrong to leave out any of them.
I love the idea that someday my kids will look through our albums, come to this spread, and say, "Mom, I don't get it... I thought you only did craft projects and grew tomatoes before we were born... and now it looks like you had friends?!" And I'll be like, "I know kids. I hate to burst that bubble. Also, your father is an excellent dancer."
(click the photos above to enlarge and the images will become [somewhat] clearer.)
So that's it, just oodles of photos and some paper pieces from the wedding. Most were snatched from our friend Kyle's facebook album. They are totally web quality not print quality and I totally don't care.
To "decorate" the spread, I stapled gold star sequins right to the photos.
Kind of fun without being over-powering.
Much like the Palm Springs spread from early August, I wanted these pages to have a little "bonus" so I added in another divider. Instead of painting this one, I used PVA glue (similar to mod podge) and covered the whole thing with gold glitter. It was supposed to have sort of an ombre effect, but as you might know, glitter is hard to control.
The glitter was falling off EVERYWHERE, so I went over it again with another coat of glue and that sealed it up well. I added a stamped "RAD" on paper right on top.
And then, I included a bit of text about the weekend on a piece of 5x7 cardstock. I slipped it into a 5x7 pocket and added it right between the pages. Very simple method and I'll be doing this again with additional text for sure.
Super fun. Weddings are the best. Paul makes me laugh.
