Wedding Scrapbook

Morning everyone, it's really good to be posting in daylight for a change. A beautiful morning it is out there (I haven't ventured out yet, but it looks beautiful), the Autumn colours are inspirational so will have to play around with my stamp sets later on.

Yesterday was spent at Julie's Scrapbook class. It was, as always, a double page layout, with Weddings as a theme. No giggling at the perm please, it was 1995 :-)

Colour combination is: Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake & Early Espresso
Stamp Set: Vintage Vogue, Artistic Etchings
Wheel: Bella's Border
Ribbon: 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Early Espresso

The new flat back adhesive pearls are just fab for that elegant finish

I went a bit pearl crazy, and added them all way along the scallop border

Not just Julie over on Paper Wishes and Ribbon Kisses that makes the punches work hard :-)

Punches: Scallop Border, Heart to Heart extra large, Scallop Trim Border (I must get this one), Eyelet Boder, Full Heart Extra Large

My friend and work colleague, Angela, came along and very kindly did a page layout of Leanne when she was a bridesmaid for my best friend. I am terrible at remembering years, (I know the date was 28/6), looking at Leanne I would say it was 2003 (sorry Karen if I've got it wrong).

I'm really getting into scrapbooking, my next book will be on Leanne's dancing shows that she has taken part in. Something, I hope, that she will enjoy showing her children (we are many many years off me becoming a Grandma!).

If you have ever been interested in starting scrapbooking, or have been doing it for years, and would like to attend a monthly class email me for more information.

There is a big craft event taking place today local to me. I am not going... I am not going... I am not going............ well I might just pop along this afternoon :-)

Have a fab Sunday and enjoy this lovely Autumn day.

Thanks for stopping by.
