It's hard to believe that last year at this time, I didn't even have the time to scrap because I was too busy planning our wedding! One year of marriage later (five and half years together total) and we're still just has happy! :)

Lauren in my husband's cousin and Dave is actually our mortgage guy (and his brother was our realtor too!)... they were married this past Friday and everything was just absolutely beautiful! I'm sure I won't be able to resist making a few more pages for them!

Gavin and his cousin AJ goofing around on the Fourth of July... just love this pic! I picked up this kit at Digital Crea awhile ago as soon as I saw it, I hate that boy themed kits are so hard to find!

What a little diva, right?!? For the past couple weeks, the only thing this girl wants to wear is her princess outfits... and she wears them everywhere, including outdoors to go play which is why she has her glasses on here, she just cracks me up!
How I created the reflection: Obviously, the first thing I did was extract my image. Next, I duplicated the image and flipped it vertically. I then 'transformed' the flipped image by holding down the CTRL key, clicking on the lower left corner and dragging it to the left. Finally, I blended the flipped photo onto the background. In this case, I actually used two layers for the blending. I first used overlay which I liked but because I had such a light background, it was a little difficult to see. So I made a second layer of the image on top of that, left it normal and reduced the opacity to 10%. As I always say, blending takes a lot of trial and error in every project and it may not work for you the same way it worked for me!
