Have a heart

A layout using photos from my sister's wedding back in 2000 (eek)! I was Matron of Honour and Lora was her Flower Girl.

Layout is 8x8  using some ivory handmade paper with a pearlised sheen to it which I found lurking unused in a drawer. The colour scheme for the wedding was blue and yellow as Sis was (and still is) a Leeds United supporter! Heart punches and fancy border punch are from Martha Stewart, heart die, button die and flourishes are from Marianne Designs. Lace. pearls, ribbon and heart buckle (I've been hoarding these too) are from my stash. I've also made a rosette flower using a bit of backing paper from Joanna Sheen's ATC CD and a small round Spellbinders nestie die, and what a faff that was - don't think I'll make many more in a hurry!!

Challenges entered:
The Ribbon Reel - resolution + ribbon and button
My resolution (or one of them) is to do some scrapbooking
Use it Tuesday - all about love
The Paper Variety - fanfold paper projects
Pile it on - add lace
Hooked on Crafts - something bright
Paper Play - lovely lace
