Happily Ever After

Good morning all...

Another lovely day in my corner of Kent... long may this continue.. so I'm restricting my scrapping time to early mornings and evenings so I don't miss this gorgeous weather.. you never know how long it'll last... and in the UK we have to make the most of it! 

So today I'm bringing you a LO created for the Scrap Our Stash challenge.. Something Old, Something New, Something fussy cut, Something Blue.

First I took a sketch from Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge where they encourage you to scrap about yourself.. well although this isn't actually a photo of myself .. it is 'about' me... the photo is of my son and his new wife when they got married last Summer. If you can't say a photo of your son is about you.. what can you? He, (along with my other son and my husband), is my world! His name is Adam and he is my first born. He is also the one that people say is most like me.. in personality, family looks, traits and even his chosen career.. he is 'mini me!' lol. So I do think that this LO meets the criteria and is 'about' me.  




Once I had my sketch all chosen out, I chose the papers and embellishments to meet the other criteria. In this case I chose papers from Authentique Classique for the matted layers.. and this is my 'something new' as I only took delivery of the 6" paper pad this week.

I then added all the clusters and added the wedding bell embellishment that you see on the top left of the photo which is my 'something old' as this is a button that I have had since I began scrapbooking 3 years ago. 

For the 'fussy cut' I cut the flower clusters, the frame and the swag beneath the bottom photo cluster... and of course for the 'something blue'.. I think you can work out for yourself! 

For the top cluster I used some 'chalkboard' washi tape with wedding script on and added two punched hearts, some heart tape and I then added some die cuts and some pearl pen dots to finish it all off. 

Well that's another post for today.. do pop back later as I am planning another one... after my osteopath appointment as I have hurt my back and can barely move.. probably all the gardening I've been doing in all this lovely weather! My own fault.. Doh!
