A little bit of scrapbooking!





I just received my December Kit from Michele over at Crafts4Eternity (which is gorgeous) and it reminded me to post my page from the October Kit!
I had great fun making this page and the papers were perfect for the nostalgic feel i wanted to create with these photos. They are my parents wedding photos and when I look at these I suddenly realise how young and innocent they were lol. My Mum's album was only a little black and white one and she always would have loved to have it done up nicely, pity she isn't around to see it.
Anyway I used lots of techniques for this one page include, stitching, lace, borders, stamping, ripping papers, frames, beaded pins, and the list goes on. If you follow the link you will find lots more inspiration and lots of kits and other goodies too. Michele has a lovely selection of papers and if you hurry you will be able to get the December Kit which I will be working on this weekend. Hope you like my page.
I came across a new challenge blog called Sweet Stamping Challenge, so thought I would enter this. Its primarily a SU blog but you can enter it with anything.

It is a really special page. It can be quite hard making something that means so much to you, I know I couldnt do it just yet.

Good on you for producing such a lovely memento of their special day!
