And so, for the final pictures.
This page I edited from before. I removed some things and added others that will hopefully tie in the album a bit better (Aug 5)
I'm really pleased with how this page turned out, especially since it was hard to figure out what to do since the one photo was an odd size. (Aug 3)

The above photo is of the guest list page, and the redid page that I had posted in my last post. The bright yellow one? Yeah, completely different... paper, photos, etc. (July 28)
This one I could finally work on since I had the pictures of us signing now. I wanted to have the photo of the women singing the song that I typed up, but that was a color photo, and to keep both of these pics of us each signing, it wouldn't have worked. Plus, it just wasn't the greatest quality photo either. (July 28)

First some older pages I did ages ago.
This was the last page I did before I quit for 2 years. I quite like this page, so all I did was add the 'boy meets girl' title.
This is yet another old page. Lots going on here. I'm not thinking I'll change this one.
This one needs to change I think. At least adding some borders to the photos would be good. This was my very first page I did.
I love these pics, and as a second page, I think I did much better (I added borders, which helped). I added the 'I'm Yours' title to it today.
This is going to be completely redone. The colors are far too harsh for the album, so the page is going to be taken out completely and I'll be adding in different 'getting ready' pics instead. Sad, really. Then the adjacent page is for the guest list, and the paper shown there is what I'll be using for that.
I finished this page last week Tuesday. I had started on it Monday and was thinking I'd leave it and do 5x7's for the pics instead, but I didn't feel like waiting on it (hahaha) so I just left it with the 4x6's. The 'black squares' in the corner are mirror pieces. I think it turned out rather lovely (July 20-21).
I just finished this page today, and I'm rather happy with it. I got the pics in yesterday (I love Photolab.ca... I can pick my pics online at home, and then the next time we go shopping just go to pick them up). This was one of the pages I skipped due to not having any pics of me coming down the aisle. (July 25-26)
This one I did today. Yup... decided it would be good to do this... since it is the first page. I didn't feel it needed a title... it sort of speaks for itself (not to mention all the words at the bottom of the page make one kinda unnecessary). (July 26)
So, that's that for this week. Now let's see if I can get the other 7 pages done next week... and maybe even the other 2 I wish to redo! Then this book will be complete! :)

I had the most trouble with the set up of the right page... mainly because of the setup of the two toasts being so different. I finally decided to try to mirror the left page somewhat instead. I think it turned out rather well (July 8-11)

I wanted only 4 pages for the reception, and two of them had to include stuff on the program, so I needed to put a lot of pics on one spread. Hence, these pages. (July 6-7).
And above, the program page. This includes a brief writeup of the program, and the lyrics to a song that was sung. (July 7-8)
The page I'm currently working on I've been working on for a few days with little success. I'm having such a hard time with the layout. That is always so difficult. I think I've worked something out now, but I haven't even started picking the paper and such... so it may be another day yet before I can post it. That is the page of the 'Roasts and Toasts', so to speak. Basically, what happened at open mike (there was only one speech really) and the toasts. However, the difficulty comes in the toasts page. They were so different... my sister's toast was written up and while not long, it looks long typed. The best man's toast is literally 2 lines long. How do you balance something like that?
Anyway, we'll see what I do, hopefully tomorrow. For now... I want to continue working on it!

First of all, three of us are sitting. Not really working out so much... so I found a pic of mom standing (she was being walked down the aisle), tried to make it look like she had her arm behind her back, and put her in that way. I moved my SIL's up 'one step' to match with the boys on the other side, added my one SIL's 'back' from another photo someone else took (our photographer chopped her off when he took the pic), moved the boys closer in, took out one BIL who is no longer part of the family anyway (divorce... such a nasty thing)... it worked better with the scheme of things anyway to do so, and he's in another photo anyway. I 'moved' my nephew to stand with the BIL's. Moved dad over too. Then I added me and DH from another photo of us standing. Ok... I guess this is a 5 in one... 'cause I needed my skirt from somewhere as the photo of the two of us had someone sitting on it. Anyway, it took a REAL long time and a lot of work. I think it was well worth the effort. As usual, I faded the edges a bit too.
Not even the same photograph! I love black and white... it's so much easier to match other pics together!

And the edited version. I moved everyone sitting 'up a stair' so to speak, got rid of the rug and walls (his cloth wasn't big enough... should have taken family pics without the cloth then, ah well), and faded the corners to soften it. What do you think?

And now, the edited version!
