Where did those years go?

I know people say the older you get the quicker time seems to go!  But I can honestly say I don't believe I can have been married 23 years, I mean how is it possible when I'm only 23 in my head lol.

We had a beautiful Wedding  and its still is so fresh in my mind - I remember nearly every detail. But 23 years ago it was, last Saturday - and I still haven't really scrapped the photos - but I did make a start on it, with this layout - you may have seen it over on the Gotta Craft blog, but for those that didn't, here it is :)

I've actually started feeling a lot more creative recently, and even managed two layouts at the crop last night - that's unheard of for me, but I watched a video of Shimelle's over on the Ali Edwards blog recently - and she really got me thinking about scrapping the little moments in our lives.  I know I started to with my daily coffee a few months back, but she has made me think of how to look around me and scrap my everyday - so I'll be sharing those moments with you ..... I hope you don't mind :)

  3. Well done you for being married 23 years !! Life seems to move at such a fast pace, I wish the roundabout would stop now and then so I could get off for a while......

  6. Lovely LO Sandra. It is surprising how good everyday stuff can look when scrapped. Shimelle did a 'scrap your day' course a couple of years ago where you took photos on the 25th of every month including getting up, meals, and a view from a window and it was lovely being able to see the changes through the year.

  18. Happy Anniversary! You certainly don't look old enough to celebrate 23 years! Wow. And such a gorgeous layout to mark the day. So pretty with lots of little elements to draw the eye. Just lovely.

    Scrapping the everyday? I do this most of the time and it's SO rewarding. I look forward to seeing some of this from you. Glad to hear you seem to have got your scrapping mojo back.
