#RightNow Scrapbook layout

I went to a wedding 2 weeks ago, and we took a lot of pictures. Funny thing is we only managed to snap a few WITH the bride and groom! We definitely have way more photos of ourselves.

Here is my layout:

These are the group pictures of just the guys and one photo of the girls only. I did position the photos that way so they are all sort of focus in the center. (eg like how the angle they stood for the photo). I entitled the layout #RightNow to describe us right at this moment and subtitled it “InstaLove”.

I want to talk a little bit about the phrase “InstaLove”. I decided to use it because I have seen stickers that had “InstaLove” on it and thought it would be cool to handstitched it to my layout. Honestly, I did not really know what that means; I thought it was like “love this instant, or love instagram”. But it really means young adults love at first sight? Or was it falling in love very soon after they meet? Mostly for the girls part.. These days there are so many modern words out there now, or simple words/phrases are being used for other meanings; when you check urban dictionary on google, you can really find out pretty interesting stuff. Anyways, I am not bothered with urban dictionary meaning for that phrase. I am using “Instalove” for “loving this instant; loving this moment in time”!

I made this layout inspired by a sketch over at Sketch~N~Scrap. Check out their blog for more inspiration!
