So Sketchy # 21 & SYC!

I scrapbooked my pics from a trip my hubby and I took to Montreal... I got my inspiration from Elizabeth. She is a wicked scrapbooker and if you look through her blog I find she scraps the most original stuff, her feet, her parents divorce! Well I have had these pics on my desk for a while but would not scrap them cause I (and everyone else for that matter) thought Bob was going to ask me to marry him on this trip... but he didn't! Now when I look at these pics that's what I remember!
We were at this amazing italian restaurant and he said Will You... pass me the bread! lol So in case you can't see in the photo, the layout is called Will You WHAT?
