I’m back with another freebie, which just happens to be another coordinating page to our November *Days Gone By* challenge posting bonus, *Glitterfall*!
I really had no idea that I would end up scrapping wedding photos with *Glitterfall*, but I really like the way these two have turned out AND the kids DID get married a few days into the OFFICIAL “Fall” season!!! I chuckle as it was a SWELTERING 104 degrees on the 26th of September and I kid you not when I say that the wedding party, as well as the guests, were melting! LOL! I can laugh now, but it was not SO funny at the time as I think we were all a little delirious! I know, in retrospect, I did not capture several photos I would have liked to, but the kids were simply TOO hot (yes, beads of perspiration upon each of their sweet little faces) to give us the time we would have liked to have had with them. Anyhoo, Jessica, looking stunningly beautiful walking down the aisle, arm-in-arm with her dad, to the song, “At Last” by Etta James. I have used the lyrics to the song as my journaling for the first page! ROFL! Yup, I even scrapped backwards as the first layout I posted last week is now page two! He, he …

Here is what both pages will look like together. I changed the background paper on the second page to match the first as these will go into a photobook! WOO HOO! My VERY first and I am SUPER excited about gettin’ ‘er done! *wink*
I think I mentioned that Mark and Jessica’s wedding was not of the traditional variety and I LOVED every moment of it! They were married in the backyard of one of Jessica’s aunt and uncle’s homes that sits atop a hill (or small mountain!) with no other home for miles and a GORGEOUS 360-degree view! They even say that on a REALLY clear day, you can spy Half Dome in Yosemite National Park!!! All I can say is that it is breathtaking and I would have NO problem waking up to Dan and Kelly’s view every morning! The two lovebirds were joined in holy matrimony by a dear and long-time family friend who rode in on his Harley! So, needless to say, that Harley became an instant prop for LOTS of photos and you’d have thought that my other three sons and the best man ALL looked like the Secret Service!!! With it being SOOOOOO hot and the wedding party facing the sun, the guys ALL wore their sunglasses along with black slacks, white shirts and black ties! LOL! Can we say, “Men in Black”? Uh, huh! I will share a few more photos next blog post!
REMINDER: If you would like to receive the kit, *Glitterfall* (featured below) for FREE, all you need to do is check out our November *Days Gone By* challenge in the Scrapland Express Forum (must register first in both the forum and the gallery), create a layout and then post in the Scrapland Express Gallery.
