More memory board to scrapbook pages

Here's a reminder of what the board looked like.  I've already shown how the side panels turned into pages.  Here is what I did with some of the center portion:

This is the first page of the book.  If you look at the top center section of the memory board, you can see that I just lifted this entire piece and simply put it on a white sheet of cardstock.  Quick, easy, and a nice way to start the book.  The border on the gold mat was cut with a Cheery Lynn Reflections die.  The corner treatments were cut with my Silhouette.

These two pages are side by side.  The gold was a 2" x 3" piece of hand-made paper I bought at an art store close-out.  It was a wonderful size for the board - and then I just cut it into 6 pieces to serve as backgrounds for scrapbook pages. With my background in place, the page at the right is quickly finished - simply pull the collage off the memory board and place it as you see here.  The page on the left took a bit more work.  Checking the memory board again, you can see that the picture was there in a narrow white frame, and the words "Husband & Wife" were also there (below the collage at the bottom).  The corner treatments were leftovers, and the word "LOVING" was one I had cut on my Silhoutte and ended up not using on the board.  I had some leftover pieces of the blue marbled paper and used it for the borders and large mat.  A bit of tan ribbon completes the borders.

Tomorrow I'll show you more of the pages made from the center of the memory board.
