I'm so thrilled to be chosen as one of March's FabFive from the Counterfiet Challenge blog! The first month I've joined in and was selected... Yay.. Go me... For more of the Fab Five see here! http://counterfeitkitchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
Here is another LO I have made from my counterfeit Kit for March. As the colours I chose were very summery I am having great fun going back over old photos finding pictures of my dear Son in his childhood.. it is bringing back so many happy memories and I can't wait to delve into the box of photos again.
As you can see it is very different from my last kit LO but I have used the same/similar papers here. I used up the final piece of cardstock that I had inked to change it to match my dress in the last kit LO I did. There's none left now so there isn't any chance you'll get bored with it..lol
Todays blog features some invitations I have made to a garden party I am hosting in May.
As I am mother of the groom rather than the bride I am playing a rather hands off approach to it on account of the fact that the brides parents want to take charge (lots of lip biting going on!) lol
So... to put my 'organising gene' to good use I decided to host a garden party 2 weeks prior to the big day for the actual wedding 'party'. I call it my pre-wedding 'wedding party' party... not easy to say when you've had a glass of wine on two! lol
I used an embossing folder from Couture Creations called 'Butterfly Hugs' and cropped it down to fit a 5" square card and matted it on teal CS as that is their accent colour for the big day and then added three crystals and a stamped 'invitation'.. such a simple card that anyone could do. I don;t often 'do' cards so it had to be simple!
I am having great fun making decorations for the party (please God let the sun shine) or all my paper decorations will be papier mache! Paper chains, tissue pom poms, jam jar candles-the list goes on. I'm having a great time. The table planner is next for the actual wedding.
While surfing the net for some ideas I came across these rather gorgeous free printable labels/tickets that are wedding themed. I thought I'd share them on here in case anyone can make good use of them too. I've printed a few off for the post wedding scrapbook album. Enjoy these here.
Here are my pages for my CJ. Batgirl21 from UKS chose Favourite song lyrics and I chose Mr Blue Sky by ELO as it brings back so many happy memories of the 1970's when I was first dating my husband. Aaahh.... happy memories. The photos flap open and the lyrics for the songs are hidden underneath.
The last verse of the song tells the story of the sun going down so I incorporated a picture of the setting sun. Both photos were taken in St Lucia to celebrate my 50th birthday
Here is my latest LO for the March challenge on UKS where we have been challenged to create a LO using mauve, orange, yellow and green... Not my usual type if palette but it is good to scrap outside your comfort zone sometimes... That's why I like to accept the challenges laid down sometimes.
As it is Mother's Day he's in the UK I have made another LO featuring my son as he cooked my scrumptious lunch today he's 9 in this picture and now he's 29
Hi all... had a great few days. Although I've been working I have also been out a lot this week too. I had a lovely day yesterday. as I went to RHS Wisley with my Mum and Sister to see the Butterflies in the Glasshouse exhibition and we had a lovely time. I am putting a few of the hundreds of photos I took below so you can appreciate the beauty that I saw. No doubt they will be appearing on scrap layouts soon!
Off to a crop today so hoping to get some more LO's done and my latest CJ pages (especially as they have to be posted by Monday!)
