Mellow Yellow

Have you ever had a project that was so daunting that you put it off...and put it off again? That is how I have felt about my wedding scrapbook. I am obviously an avid scrapbooker so people assume I would have finished months ago but I am just so intimated by it that for the last ten months all I had done was buy the paper! I mean how do you go about picking pictures when you have over 800 images and you love 110% of them! So a few weeks ago, with the help of my friend Michelle, I FINALLY got started on a layout. I started with a sketch by Becky Fleck and some beautiful paper I bought by the ton by Pebbles.

I really like this paper because the black and white is so elegant and the yellow just gives it the right pop of color. And a special thank you to Michelle for letting me raid her letter stickers and giving me the idea for making a "ring!"

Now let's hope it doesn't take me another 10 months to make a second layout! I'm entering this in a contest over at Scrap It With a Song which is a really fun blog that posts challenges that are inspired by songs. This week's challenge is to create a project inspired by Coldplay's "Yellow." I'm also entering it over at ScrapFIT's Salt and Pepper Workout!

I'm off to finish the last book in The Hunger Games trilogy. I can't put it down!

You look gorgeous in the photo! I'm glad you got started on your wedding photos, so hopefully it won't be so daunting now. We can meet and scrap together if you want to make a second page.
