Well this is what I came up with in the time I had available. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig for the dots up the side.

More Pages for my Bros Wedding Album

I've been doing a bit of scrap booking lately! There has been a fire put under my rear to get this thing done! Ha ha! Anyway, this layout is not my favorite, I had big ideas for these pages and it didn't turn out as cute as I thought it would.

There are watermarks for each page. Please excuse the terrible pictures but on the first page is says Rachel and Aaron, and on the second page is says Forever Family.
I really like how this layout turned out, I don't know if it belongs in a wedding album but it is there to stay unless my bro and sis-in-law have something else in mind for it.

Again, the pictures are not that great so you can't see all the detail but I softened up the edges by sponging in Pale Plum.

I wanted to use some of my rub ons for this next layout. I think I had high hopes for this one too and still not sure if I love it.

I think it is the pictures that make the pages anyway!
