It's another bright and sunny day here in my little corner of the world and I hope your getting it as good wherever you are.
Today I have the scrap page that appeared briefly on my desk a couple of weeks ago - WOYWW 266. I finally finished thinking about it and got down to putting it altogether.
I did have difficulty dating the photograph but my aunt Betty and Uncle Bryson being in the centre gave me a clue and after a bit of detective work I was able to establish that the year was 1975 ... they were attending the marriage of their son, my cousin, Graham, to Bernadette ... for some forgotten reason I could not attend. Shame really ... my family always threw such fabulous wedding parties :)
Now it's not a hard and fast rule I've imposed on myself but I am trying to use up any bits left after making a page ... if only to keep the snippet mountain manageable!
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Di will like it I'm sure ... it's pink :)
I used pink cardstock to make a tent shaped base and then just cut the paper into suitable sized chunks, edged with faux stitching in black, to create the layered look. The topper and greeting label are both from the kit too - there was a couple of sheets of these included. All the embellishments - ivory spider web, satin ribbon in two shades of pink, gem swirls - were all found in the stash mountain!
Time for lunch here so I'm off to make a sandwich and have a much needed cuppa.
Thanks for visiting and leaving your comments - otherwise I might believe I'm just talking to myself ... something I find myself doing more and more as I get older anyway :)
