Scrapbook Tuesday - Tea on Tuesday - T Stands for True Love!

Hello there

I know last month was supposed to be the "love month", being Valentine's Day and all that, but on Saturday when my buddy was up for a day of scrapping, I felt in the mood for doing another layout (or two in fact) of my Wedding Album.  So I routled amongst the photographs and saw these two and decided to scrap them.  

Ahhhhh!  Young love ey!  I cannot believe that these were taken nearly 25 years ago!  I don't feel old enough!  

My trusty morning cuppa of Glengettie is to the side.  In a Teddy mug which even has my name of it.  Well, if you know me I am rather fond of hugs!  

So, down to nitty gritty.  The papers are from the Album set which I bought many moons ago, and which came with the album they are for.  I have had it for so long I cannot remember the make off hand.The dragonflies are buttons with the shanks cut off.  I could not resist using them on this layout.  Bought from The Button Lady at a quilting show.

There is a little bit of a pun on this text....I only have eyes for you!  We met when I worked at an Opticians.  Mr Hettie was a customer and said he decided on our firm 'cos he fancied me!  Hmmmn!  In fact, I made the very glasses he is wearing on our Wedding Day!  He usually wears reactolite lenses and I did not want him to look like a member of the Taffia if the sun was out!  The "So" is from some old chipboard letters which I just edged with silvery black Memento ink and then added some Distress Stickles. 

The Happy was from the same strip which I cut up for another layout a while ago.  The ivy leaves are from my Joanna Sheen die having seen it on a certain Pixie's blog.  Had to have it as I live at Ivy Cottage!  I have used some Distress Stickles on them to give a lickle schparkle to them.  Cut from Snippets of course!  I also used some Snippets to cut the flourishes from.

We look so young!!

Well, as you will see I have shared my cuppa with you, so I am linking up with Elizabeth and Bleubeard for the T on Tuesday.  I should have asked for a note from my Mum as to why I was away last week, but I will just have to hope she doesn't notice!  I am also sharing this with the Snippets Playground as there are some in there.

Thanks for calling by.

such fond memories. :)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

What a super layout! I would never have guessed the photos were from 25 years ago. And to think the two of you are still together, something we Americans seem to have trouble doing. And I bet the two of you still only have eyes for each other, too.

Thanks for sharing your Teddy huggy mug and lovely scrapbook page today. Both are adorable.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

What a loving and gorgeous layout commemorating such a special day! It's such a blessing to have so many wonderful years together. Happy T day!

Krisha said...

What a wonderful and heart warming LO this is. I don't think it looks 25 years old either.

If you think you look young now, wait until you hit the 40 year anniversary, like we did last October. I just look at our wedding pictures and wonder who those kids were...LOL

Thanks for sharing your memories

Dianne said...

so adorable! I love that you are scrapping these photos, and even though it's been a while, it may even be a good thing that you waited. My wedding photos, in plastic sleeves, are deteriorating because they weren't acid free. Now-a-days we know about acid free so this is the perfect time! you are a very cute couple! ♥

Ariel said...

This post was so sweet. Your wedding picture looks beautiful. Thank you for sharing your 'love' story here.
Happy Tuesday

You prove that it is never too late to scrap some photos. You were a lovely bride. Enjoyed the story of how you met.

Nancy said...

Lovely page you did there :) so pretty--I love your hair piece! Time seems to fly so easily when it's spent with someone you love.
Happy T day

Mrs A. said...

Love your little story. The Doc was sitting on a pile of deckchairs when I first clapped eyes on him. (Well the back of his head cos he wasn't facing me at the time!!). Hugs Mrs A.

Another wonderful wedding layout.

I love the layout and all the details of it but most of all i love the story you shared or how you met.
That is such a sweet story!!!

Mr Hettie was a wise man to follow his heart and chose his optician so wisely.

PS The dragonfly buttons are perfect on this!

Di said...

Stunning layout Sam - and now I know why you wanted the ivy corner die (slaps head here 'cos I do know your address but didn't make the connection!).

You both look so happy - and I loved the tale of how you met. We never forget these things do we!

Your Stickeroos were posted 1st Class yesterday honey.

Hugs

Di xx

Lovely page with stunning pics. Funny how time flies and you don't feel like you should be 25 years along the line...

Karen Petitt said...

Beautiful, the project, everything, so beautiful Karen x

Ann said...

Just popped in from the playground. What a stunning scrap page - so nice to see scrapping as well as cards.
Have a good playtime.

Rita said...

Congrats on the 25 years! You two do look young and in love, that's for sure. As it should be. ;) Nice layout. Happy belated T-Day! :)

lisa said...

Lovely photos and a lovely spread, Sam. Time just flies by doesn't it but it's great to look back and I know what you mean about looking young on our Wedding photos! Happy memories though. I remember my youngest nephew who was 4 at the time telling us at our reception he'd had grass for his dinner!! He's a handsome lad of 20 now!! but still as daft!
Hope you are having a good weekend.
Hugs Lisax

Kate said...

Oh, this is so lovely! Such a beautiful picture and layout to commemorate your wedding day!

So, so sweet - love the opticians story, and the in joke of the wording... What a fantastic Wedding Album this must be in its entirety.
