CTMH Technique Blog Hop: It's in the Script!

This month's technique challenge is to use script stamps and/or penmanship in your artwork.  Be sure to click on the names to continue through this great hop. (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Michelle's blog.  From here, you'll visit Miss Carrie's Creations next.)
The new Every Little Thing collection was perfect to pair with pictures from my cousin's wedding reception way back in 2006.  (I feel very little guilt that these haven't been preserved before.  I knew exactly where to find them, and I was right, they are terrific with this collection!
 Because I had so many photos, I ended up trimming all but two down to 3.5"x3.5".  Because I didn't want to trim my two 4"x6" photos, I made all the pieces that make up the four columns measure 4" tall but only 3.5" wide.  That gave my photos a "Polaroid"-type frame and allowed me to write who was in each picture underneath.  I just used my own handwriting for my journaling.
 While this isn't the best photo, I wanted you to see the shimmer on the vellum butterfly die cut from the Mint, Julep, Wisteria, and Black shimmer brushes.
 Can you believe this adorable (at least to me!) four-year-old is now 18?!?  Notice also the Wisteria and Julep shimmer brush painting on the vellum rose die cuts.  Also, just how much do you love that gorgeous new Julep velvet ribbon?!?
On both pages, I used the new Sentiments by Melissa Esplin to stamp Congrats, Celebrate, and Mr. & Mrs. in black ink.  I used my journaling pen for the rest.  I embellished each stamped phrase with Julep glitter gems.

Scrappers, don't feel guilty for not being caught up and/or for scrapbooking out of order.
