Honeymoon Scrapbook (Part 1)

We had our honeymoon in beautiful Curacao the same location is the 2012 season season finale of the bachelorette. Susy and I were both shocked at what an injustice ABC did to the island. It's a truly beautiful place with so many more things to do and see then just swim in the ocean.

This was our second scrapbook ever and we were still learning, but we did do a few cool things in it. I still had a phobia of cutting up pictures when we made this but you will see us use the technique we showed in the Friday, August 10, 2012 post in several spots.

As the scrapbook opens you see many pictures of our plane landing in Curacao.    This was my first time on a plane, so I went a little crazy with the pictures. The shinny globe and plane on these pages was my first effort to bring bling to our scrapbooks. I've always been very pro bling and Susy  always very anti bling in our scrapbooks.  It's taking time but is I'm wearing her down.

On the next page you see the cute sun paper with bon bini in the center. Bon bini is the local language for welcome. We cut the center out of one of the suns and taped our picture behind the hole.

Nothing that exciting happens for the next few pages.  We have some pictures of our hotel and a cute double layout of pool pictures that we made with some truly cheesy paper.

A few pages later we have a layout with pansy scrapbook paper and on the page next to it we used real dried pansies for scrapbooking. We didn't have a lot of money at the time and went over our scrapbook page budget to buy them, because we thought they would looks so cute.  Over time the real flowers have completely faded.  Sadly they did not stay purple. This was the first last time that we ever used real flowers in a scrapbook. What have been your experiences with real flowers in a scrapbook?
