New LOs With New Camera

I was successful in getting my problem solved by the end of the weekend. I could not find a 1GB memory card in any store. I still have not found my memory card adapter either. I think that might have fallen out of my purse.
 DBF said it was time to get a new camera anyway. We took a trip out of town not just to look at cameras but also my son wanted to go to a guitar shop. He ended up buying a used electric guitar & amp. We went to a big chain store to look at cameras. We were checking them out & I didnt ask a salesman for any help at first because I had done research. Still being a little confused, I finally asked for help. He was helping us & we walked around to the other side of the display. There was another family looking at cameras & they started asking him questions. He started helping them & then came back to us. After a bit, he went back to them & that was it. They figured out what they wanted & kept talking to him about the camera. I had more questions for him but he seemed to busy to help me anymore. He looked at me & said, I need more people over here. I thought to myself, werent you helping me first? I got mad & walked out of the store.
 I came home & I asked the ladies from Club CK what they have & would recommend. The next day, I went to my local stores & checked out their cameras. I decided I wanted to get a Sony if it had the right features that I wanted & I ended up buying a Sony Cybershot. It will take me a little while to get use to all the features & see what works well for me.
Like I said in my previous post, I am starting my cousin's wedding album. My LOs today will be of the gift opening  at the Bridal Shower. I did a 2 page LO to start the Bridal Shower pages. The background pages are from Cosmo Cricket. The 8x8 Pink Bridal Shower paper is from a fellow peep at Club CK. She also gave me coordinating stickers to go with the paper. These stickers are the 3D flowers on both pages & the embellishments that say Bridal Shower & Gifts.
I used Glue Dots to make the flowers 3D. EK Success border punch was used on the 8x8 paper & mats for the pictures. I inked the edges of the mats with Pine Needles Distress Ink.

 Recollections rhinestones were used for the bubbly of the champagne.
 Here is the 2nd page

On this page, I used the flower stickers with Glue Dots again. The Bridal Shower & Gift stickers were adhered to some TH fragments with Glossy Accents. The flower piece on the left part of the banner is adhered to a TH fragment & came from  MME's Miss Caroline's decorative brads. All the brads are from MME. The Sew Easy Fancy Floss holding the fragment banner together is a Grasshopper Green from WE R Memory Keepers.

This post has gotten to be a bit long. I guess that can make up for not posting LOs  for awhile. There will be plenty more to come. Let me know what you think of the picture quality of the LOs. Hope everyone had a Great weekend!
Happy Scrappin!
