It's New Year's Eve!

Happy New Year's Eve friends,

Do you have big plans for the event?  It's our anniversary.  Seventeen years ago today, I said "I do" to the sweetest guy I know.  It's been a wonderful journey of growing, and learning together, and best of all welcoming our three girls into this world, and into our family.  It hasn't always been easy, but Ecclesiastes 4:12 "though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." (the verse we used as our wedding verse) proves to be steadfast and true as we navigate the rough waters, and occasionally take in the view from the mountain top of marriage.  We will celebrate tonight by going for a dinner at a fancy - shmancy restaurant, then over to a friend's place for hanging out in the hot tub, more munchies, and games.

I have something a little different for you today as far as scrappy inspiration for the day goes.

This week Brenshevia had a bit of a challenge for the Let's Get Sketchy DT.  She challenged us to scrap a photo that was less than perfect.  This provided a great opportunity for me to scrap these photos of D and I from his birthday evening.  It was a pretty low key day, filled with lots of football, and at home down time, just like he likes it.  We sported our Bears jersey's and watched them beat the pants off of the Vikings.  It was a great game.  Since then they've not played so well, but that's besides the point.  These photos were taken inside, in the evening, and are a little shaky.  It's not so easy to tell through the screen, you'll just have to take my word for it. 
I used My Mind's Eye Indie Chic papers, combined with a lot of Chic Tags, and some other goodies from my stash.
This basket weave cut was made using my Silhouette Cameo.
The "wonderful you" title cut was also purchased through the Silhouette store.
Love this little cluster, using some Chic Tags, Studio Calico veneers, and some MME bling, and a strip of paper.
How about you, have you ever scrapped less than perfect photos?  You can see what the rest of the DT created by popping over to the Let's Get Sketchy blog.

From my family to yours we wish you a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2013! Pin It
