Scrapbook Layout: Ninth Wedding Anniversary

The Story:  We celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary a couple of weeks ago.  Last year in single digits!

One scrapbook page for every anniversary:  We take a picture on each of our anniversaries and I turn it into a scrapbook layout and add it to the end of our wedding scrapbook.  I love how the scenery changes and we have changed over the years.

Guest book cards: As usual, I picked one “guest book card” that was signed by a wedding guest and included it on the page.  Read more about why we used guest book cards here.

Restaurant business card:  Also as usual, I included the business card for the restaurant where we had our anniversary dinner.  I actually forgot to grab the card after dinner (there was a lot going on that night, more on that later).  Mr. P went back a few days later and got one.

Previous Years:  Anniversaries 1-6, Anniversary 7, Anniversary 8.

Our Anniversary and My Scrapbook

Wedding ScrapbookThis week, Mr. P and I celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary.

As per our tradition, we took a photo together.  It’s the first time since our second anniversary that we’ve been home!  It’s fun to think of where we are in our lives each time we celebrate this.

Our anniversary has got me thinking about my wedding scrapbook.  Six years and I’m still working on my wedding scrapbook.  You know what?  It doesn’t matter.

Whenever I can start a project is the right time.  Have you been married six years?  Sixteen years?  Sixty years?  I don’t think a lot of time passing is a barrier to working on a wedding scrapbook, or any scrapbook for that matter.

It’s never too late to start something.  Have you been putting something off because you feel like you passed on the “right time” to do it?  Get to it!

Happy Anniversary to Us

Anniversary Dessert

The husband and I celebrated five years of wedded bliss this past weekend!

We spent the weekend in Las Vegas with some friends and, as is our tradition, we had someone take our picture.  I decided on our first anniversary that we needed some sort of tradition.  I thought if we had our picture taken every year it would look really neat in a scrapbook someday!  You know, such as at the back of a wedding scrapbook that I’m itching to start.

So every year no matter where we happen to be, we get a picture.  It’s fun to see how we’ve evolved but also remember where we were.  Our Year 3 picture was taken in front of the White House!

Do you have any anniversary traditions?  How about any regular photo traditions?  Please share!
