Back in August, my husband and I celebrated our 9 year anniversary. We went to Boondocks on our date, and we had so.much.fun!! I was so excited that they had a photo booth there, and I was happy to get some pictures in the booth. I had the pictures hanging in my room, just waiting to be scrapbooked, and I finally got to it! I am so happy about the way this page turned out! If you’ve been reading this blog long, you’ve probably noticed that I normally use a piece of cardstock for the base of my pages, well, on this one, I used ALL patterned paper, except for the title. It was really fun to challenge myself.
I thought this bottle cap was a fun element to add.
As anyone who has been married for 9 or more years, you would probably agree that there have been ups and downs in your marriage, that is why I used the Mini Monograms cartridge for my Cricut to cut the title. The font is all different, but when put together it looks great, just like a marriage that’s been through ups and downs. Am I even making any sense, lol!
I saved the receipt from that night and put it on the page as well. I didn’t think about it until after that I hope the information doesn’t disappear because of the kind of receipt it is. I might have to pull it off and copy it then put the page back together with the copy. We will see. 🙂
I did minimal journaling on the front, but I wrote a note to my husband on the back, that is something I want recorded, but I don’t want everyone who looks at my scrapbooks to read.
I’m so glad to have the memory of our 9 year anniversary date, and to have it put down on paper as well.
Have you scrapbooked any anniversary layouts? I would love to see them. If so, leave a link in the comments.
