Scrap a sketch challenge.

Yesterday was quite a productive day as far as scrapping was concerned.. (Although that pile of ironing is still there)... lol

I was inspired by Sues Scrap a sketch challenge and created a layout that is my take on it

Here is the sketch that kick started my creativity

And here is Sues take on it.

As you can see I have switched the rectangles for hexagons and altered the number of photos but I think you can see the basis of the original sketch here.

The occasion of my photos for the LO was the day my (then) future Daughter in Law and I sat down and made 100 wedding favours for her and my sons wedding in June this year. We had decided to have wine glass charms as the favours and we ordered beads, pearls and charms to thread on to the rings. As our surname is King the wedding had a royal theme and each charm had a crown on it. The men had crown charms and the ladies had hearts with crown stamped on them. We had a bit of a giggle making them and it was a lovely opportunity to bond with her. After we had made them we put them all in tiny organza bags with a little message thanking them for joining in their celebration. I have included a wine glass charm and the paper message on the LO in addition to adding the actual charms as embellishments.

These photos bought back some happy memories of that day as we had such a nice time.

Thanks Sue for setting this challenge... can't wait for next months now.
